    my Bigsby doesn't require a condom because I don't allow anyone to screw around with my guitars

    I went to a party at the local county jail
    All the cons were dancing and the band began to wail
    But the guys were indiscreet
    They were brawling in the street
    At the local dance at the local county jail

    YOU don't get pregnant, but be watchful if you take it off and leave your guitar alone with any ukuleles! ;):) You could get a knock at your door from someone blaming your "kid" for a big surprise!

    Guess it's like the tip on a 5 way switch on a Strat, They all come with one and somewhere along the way something happens. Better questions might be, what is the useful life of the handle's tip ? What caused it's demise, to be missing ?

    I received one once without it. Sent the guitar back. It was terrible.

    I just read a whole thread of grown men making condom jokes... and people have the audacity to call me immature. I love it.

    I never got one of those rubber tips, so my wigglestick breathes freely.

    Even my Chet Atkins Bigsby arm came with one. I take them off.

    Well, finally took mine off after 3 years only to have the bridge pickup stop working. Coincidence? I think not.

    How else are you supposed to react to a thread entitled “rubber piece on bigsby arm”
    I assumed it was just a metaphor or a new group I hadn’t heard of.

    Well, I grew up on a dairy ranch. I distinctly remember the vet artificially inseminating cows using a long glass tube and a long rubber glove, which could be considered an "arm rubber." :)

    Are you referring to one of my posts? If so, I apologize, I certainly meant no offense.
