    It never occurred to me to take it off. I think I’ll leave it on.

    I remove mine but everyone can do as they please. Although it reminds me of having clear plastic covering over furniture in the 70’s and 80’s to protect it. Some here might know what I’m talking about.

    Like most everything in life, WHO cares what others think/like. It's subjective and up to you. Leave it on, take it off, whatever feels right for YOU.o_O

    Worried about Covid perhaps?

    I can see why some might like it. The newer Bigsby flat arms some sometimes have some sharp or tough edges, so the “handle condom” might smooth it out a little.

    The DE handle is more rounded, so no need (for me)
