      Another good use for a credit card in guitar maintenance is if you can slide it in between the joint of the top pieces then your guitar is too dry. Really it is...too dry.  whistling

Actually that MC has expired, I just haven't cut it up yet. Also, I should have had another piece of protection over the fretboard.

They don't let you max 'em out anymore... just keep increasing your headroom!

Yeah, seems like a section of the credit card that can fit in between the nut and first fret would work well for protection. Then cut it to the width of the fingerboard at the nut and just tape it to the neck.
