So here's the issue. Electric guitar, thin and lightweight basswood body, and a chunky neck with a fair sized headstock. To sum it up, the damn thing neck dives like a friggin' SG. So is there any good way to fix this? I really like the guitar, it's just hard to play when it keeps wanting to sink down away from me.

Kramer, real old one. "American Showster" is the name, though it's a Korean made model. Dated somewhere around '89. Body is very thin.

My Tele neck dives a lot as well. I just sit more

Buy an acoustic strap that you can tie around the Headstock. Problem solved for good.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Use a leather strap that has an unfinished underside that grips on your shoulder, works on all neck heavy guitars.

I can't see a strap button on the tip of your upper horn in your pic (in your profile). Where is it located? Is it on the back of the horn or on the neck plate? If it's on the neck-plate you could move it up towards the tip of the upper horn or right behind it.



The strap pin is about as far up on the back of the horn as it can be. Haha so there's really no moving it.

And thanks for the compliment!
