I'm aware that doesn't make sense, but what i mean is if you just plug your lead into your guitar, you're bound to step on it live and pull it out, so is there a special way of tying it to your strap or something?

I have a strat, so what I do is put it through the guitar strap and then plug it in. This way if you step on it, it won't come out.

Yep. That's basically the standard way to 'lock' your cable for non-V guitars.

I run the cable behind me and in between myself and the guitar while it's strapped. That way the cable is always behind my feet so I don't trip.

I do this for my V and it works perfectly.

It was the only task I would undertake...

i've seen people wrap the cable around the upper "spike" as well, lol. on a gibson style V though, doesn't it leave the cable dangling between the points and look kinda odd?
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Maybe. I use an Ibanez V and the cable plugs in to the upper wing, and the strap lock is behin the upper wing. So I just put the cable between the strap and the guitar and plug it in. You almost can't see it .

I run wireless live. During practices though...around the strap button and then in.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

It's pretty much the standard thing to do. I do it even when sitting down, as it should be second nature.

Plus, it looks pretty cool when viewed by someone looking at your right [for right handed players].

Really? I tried it with my mate's Razorback and the tension of the cable slipped the strap off the button. Luckily I had fast reflexes that day....

....then again, it's prolly my mate's fault for not using strap locks.

Well, Razorback's suck so...

Just kidding, just kidding (not really). But I have strap locks so that doesn't happen. And even if I didn't, the holes in my strap are tight as hell and I doubt it would go anywhere.

I've actually seen a lot of people tape their leads in too, on top of running it through the strap.
