Like about the DingGo: The Dingo is a simple and easy to use product to protect your favorite Martin guitar. It effectively protects against any unwanted damage to the top of your guitar...especially during string changes. We all know that with those big, clunky pliers, bridge-pin pullers, tuners, bridgepins, polishes etc. there are many ways to damage the top of your guitar. Not with the Dingo.
Dislike about the DingGo: Not much to dislike. Again, it's simple and easy to use.
Additional Comments: I purchased my Dingo for my new HD-28V. It came with Maury's exclusive Guitar Maintenance Combo Deluxe. Be sure to specify the correct size, as the Dingo is not a "one size fits all" product.

Has handy pockets for bridgepins and keeps the soundhole from devouring your pins, pliers, string trimmings, cathair or whatever else might fall in.
Disliked about the DingGo Acoustic Guitar Top Protector: Nothing really.
Additional Comments: This device is for those folks who buy a new guitar and want to keep it showroom new forever. Now, I do try to be careful with my 00-28VSMM, but, just by handling it, playing it and carrying it around, it is inevitable that dings are going to occur. Maury was extremely kind to send me a DingGo to review, and I highly recommend it for those who wish to keep their guitars pristine. However, for those who immediately remove the plastic covers from furniture, lampshades, pickguards, etc., chances are you'll forget to use it if you have one. So, if you're like me, you might want to load up on strings or obsess on fancy bridgepins instead.
