Hi, Ivan. I like this post, and seem to keep coming back to it. I have a cedar topped Pono, and I love it! absolutely love it. No dings and only one tiny scratch so far. You're right, nothing beats cedar (except maybe spruce...but I like cedar).
I am concerned, slightly, about the adhesive on the iPad guard Although it's minimal, it is there. Made to be put on Gorilla glass of the iPad, I do wonder if, over time (6-12 months) it could take the finish off the instrument.
I'm thinking about using overhead projector clear plastic (sold at office supply stores) and see if static electricity alone would keep it on. If it's the thin ones (in this instance, cheap is good), I think they can be fairly clingy--at least to one another--I'm not sure about to cedar.
My wife had an idea about heavy duty catering strength cling wrap. Might not give as much protection, but might be acceptable, esp on a satin finish uke.
Perhaps I'm overthinking the adhesive, but I just don't want to cause more problems than the potential scratches themselves.
