Jem... Minus Monkey Grip?

Recommended Posts

IMHO, in theory cutting a monkey grip into your guitar will 'damage' the guitars tone and resonance, but in practise it's not noticeably bad. It may make it sound different (but all guitars sound different), but it won't make it sound crap.

Cut a monkey grip if you're going to use it or you like the look of it, leave it out if you don't care.

(edited for clarity)

IMO the monkey grip would change the sound so little, it would be inaudible. Could be wrong, but the farther away from the strings path, and vibrations from neck to bridge you go, the less difference a hole would make in resonance, sustain etc.

Besides they do look way kewl.. lol
