Here's my mandolin with the Tone-Gard. It just snaps
on the back. It keeps the back of the mandolin off your belly, so the
sound isn't muffled. You can really tell the difference. I wouldn't
want to be without one on my mandolins.

People with Mandolins
began as a challenge became a compulsion for Jack Hall, and in
a mere 3 years between 1936 and 1939 he assembled an acoustic guitar,
a tenor banjo, and two mandolins.
The most recent news from Tony Hall about the instruments is
that Guinness World records have notified me that "I am now an
official Guinness World Record holder for: The Largest Collection (10)
of Playable Musical Instruments Made Entirely From Wooden Matchsticks."
