The FT-1 plastic finger protector is provided to help Musicians with injured finger tips. It is not a cheap rubber or plastic glove protector you see on line or in guitar stores. Those items will not help a finger tip that has been severely injured or cut off, Galaxy's FT-1™ will. Many clients come to us after they have wasted time with a substandard protector or someone making a home made item that does not work. Our FT-1 is the only musical finger protector that is designed to lesson pain from an injury by removing most of the pressure at the finger tip, displacing it around the sides. A cheap dish washing rubber glove or finger cot type product will not provide this level of protection. Put our 18 years of experience in finger tip protection to work for you. The FT-1 will last you years, it increases the speed of trills, develops a unique vibrato. Please be advised, the FT-1 is sold to injured Musicians in true need of this product. Read Client testimonials below. The Galaxy FT-1™ has helped hundreds of Musicians worldwide regain the ability to play their instrument again in comfort.

Meticulous hard work goes into making each one. The Galaxy FT-1 is not a medical device, it is a musical accessory. Our trained tech's spend a total of 5 to 7 hours over 4 days making each Galaxy FT-1™ in batches. Surgical plastic gloves are worn throughout the process. We use a durable firm flex molded plastic. We cut, shape & bond an expensive thick black suede leather that cure's for 24 hours. That process is extremely challenging, to form & secure a strong bond of leather to plastic that will endure pressure from guitar playing & last. Our special selected high-quality black suede leather will last you years. 4 separate coats of special Hypoallergenic paint are then hand applied that also seals in the leather around the edges. Each coat cure's for 24 hours. Once all coats are applied the FT-1 must cure for one week before it ships. Good thing we always have them ready for qualified customers to keep up with the weekly demand. We are relentlessly dedicated to provide this important service to Musicians Worldwide. Client Re-orders are placed here weekly.

This is a re-order. I am currently on my second FT-1 and it is still in good shape, but I want to have a spare on hand. Thanks for the great product. It allows me to play. Without it I would not be able to. Please send a flesh tone color.
I was repairing a piece of electronic gear, trying to remove some epoxy from a circuit board, and the razorblade slipped; slicing handle deep into my fingertip, and out the other side through my fingernail. It took more than a month to heal back together. I've been playing the guitar for about ten years, and after my finger healed back together I found it to fret with that finger, and for the first time in ten years, I could no longer play the guitar. This was devastating to me, seeing as though I've been playing in a band for two years, and was right in the middle of tracking my guitar parts for our first full length record. I was literally losing sleep wondering if my one means of love, passion, and stress relief was really gone forever. When I discovered the Galaxy FT-1, I was a bit skeptical, but I was willing to try anything to be able to play the guitar again. When I received my FT-1 in the mail, I tried it on and had to wrap my finger in a little medical tape for a snug fit. I started to fret and strum, and although it felt quite foreign, I realized instantly that there was no pain. I felt that was a step in the right direction. The FT-1 is truly just an extension of my own finger, minus the pain. I can fret, bend, rip harmonics, sweep arpeggios just like before. Thank you so much Galaxy for giving me my music career back.
When I was eighteen, I was playing guitar for about one year when I accidentally had the tips of my left middle and ring fingers chopped off in a lawn mower accident..ouch!!Even though I was not an accomplished player at the time, I was really excited and pleased with the progress I was making with the guitar. After I had a skin graft done (I did not lose any bone, but I lost tissue on both fingers). To this day, the pain continues to exist especially in the winter when my finger tips turn a blueish color. The pain can persist up to an hour. Obviously, I was devastated that I could not play guitar anymore. Last Christmas I asked my wife if I could get a guitar as a gift, hoping that I could play again. I was wrong as the pain was still too intense. I was determined to find a way to play again. The pain was so bad that I was favoring my injured fingers whenever I needed to use them on the fret. At first, I put band aids on my fingers with the hope that the cushion on the band aid would protect my injury and soften the pain. After a week or so, I realized that this would not work. I even made an appointment with my doctor to see if there was any type of plastic surgery in order to add the tissue or medication that could numb the fingers. There is no plastic surgery for this injury and I was hesitating to take medication. There is a medication that softens the pain. I was taking it for a week with little results. But the fact that my injured fingers could not grip the strings continued to be a problem. While I was at work, I was exploring the internet to see if there was a product available for guitar players like myself with an injury to their fingers. I have always been an avid Black Sabbath fan and I knew that Tony Iommi had a serious injury to the same fingers that I did although Tony is left handed he injured two of his fret fingers. My Google search led me to the Galaxy Guitar Products website. When I saw that there was an affordable product available, I eagerly purchased two of the FT-1's for myself. When they arrived I attempted to play but it was some-what difficult because my finger tips seemed very clumsy on the fret board and I had a difficult time moving my two fingers around. It seemed like my injured fingers were always bumping into one another. I was also some-what embarrassed with the fact that people kept asking me what those tips are for? I even spoke to Galaxy a few times on the telephone. They told me "Be patient, you will get used to them and there is nothing embarrassing about overcoming an injury if you desire to do something you love." A month went by I became used to them more and more. At the present time the feeling I have with the FT-1s is very natural. I sometimes even forget that I have them on my fingertips. I feel blessed that I have another opportunity to play again. Without this product I highly doubt I would be able to play the guitar period.
Thanks to everyone at Galaxy Guitar Products!!
Hey Galaxy! Thanks for the finger extension (protector). It works great! Already getting used to a normal length middle finger.
Galaxy, Thanks! Works great, I'm back in the saddle again!
Edward J Hines. Edward Hines Music,
I want to thank you Galaxy for the FT-1 Protector. With 4 sold out 2014 New Years shows and a badly cut finger the outlook was bleak. The Galaxy FT-1 worked great and the shows went on. Was I at 100%? No but I could play enough not to have cancelled... The 10,000 people over the 4 days thank you as well. I'd love to write a testimonial for your site if I could .. Thanks Again.

When I was 19, in 1979, I worked digging holes for swimming pools with a large Caterpillar shovel dozer. After a hot day of work and a few beers, while trying to trailer the beast, my left index finger got pinched between a track and a large chain link. Needless to say, the end of my finger was crushed and left very sensitive. I became a lawyer three years ago at 50. When I was 33 I had my right shoulder "Fused" into the socket after smashing it to smithereens. As a reward to myself, I decided to take up guitar this year at 53. I bought a Fender Telecaster Thinline semi-hollow body for myself at Christmas. I was concerned about both my shoulder and my finger. The shoulder is not a problem, but the finger is so sensitive I can't play, or so I thought. Along comes a God send, the Galaxy FT-1 Finger Protector. This thing is awesome!! It fits perfectly on my finger and the engineering is so precise and well done that I can actually play my guitar-without pain! Awesome!!

On January 13, 2014 in a freak accident while hitching up our travel trailer, I amputated my left index finger just above the base of my fingernail. I play banjo, guitar and mandolin, so needless to say I was totally distraught fearing that I would never be able to play again. I began researching finger prosthetics on the internet and found Galaxy Guitars and the FT-1 finger protector. After reading all the testimonials, I was concerned that they were all written by men and wondered if it would work for female sized fingers as well. I called and spoke with Kevin Westbrook about the FT-1. He was very supportive and helpful and spent so much time talking with me and answering all my questions. I immediately ordered one even though I knew it would be quite a while before my finger was healed enough to try it. Even though my finger is still tender, I could wait no longer. I put it on for the first time on March 10th and after only 3 evenings of 20 minutes sessions, I am able to hit all my old licks on the banjo and with no pain! I have also worked a little with the guitar and mandolin with equal success. I am so pleased after only 3 sessions with the FT-1 that I have ordered a second one. My husband and I play bluegrass professionally, but we play out of passion for the music. While I could have lived with the thought of never “performing” again, the thought of never playing again was devastating. Now I know that it will be music as usual! THANK YOU GALAXY GUITARS FOR THE FT-1!!!
