Will they damage the colour of my EC-1000 VBK? I don't know whether to get this or not
Why would it? It's simply an interchangeable strap.
That's what I've been reading anyway
Maybe it does, but I don't see why it would.
I have used cliplocks on at least 20 different guitars. They will not damage anything. The only way I have ever seen a cliplock damage a finish at all is if guys put a guitar in the case with the clip ends wedged in between the guitar body and case or flopping around like crazy. As for having any effect on the color. They certainly will not.
