These are made of the finest glove leather and have that all-important layer of plastic fabric between layers to keep persipartion from coming in contact with you horn. How many old Conn 8-d's have you seen with deep pitting? That is from sweat coming in contact with the nickel where the lacquer was chipped or worn. Handguards for almost all models in stock.
The hand guard fits the Yamaha 667 VS almost perfectly (it's a tad loose at the lower end given the taper of the horn), and it provides a sure, comfortable grip. A very good product.
