Pics 1st





DeltaLab DD1: Decent, cheap delay. Nothing special but it does its job well.

Hennessey Straplocks: Decent, cheap straplocks. Nothing special but they do their job well. The strap constantly fell off of my SE245 since I got it and I'm pretty surprised my reflexes prevented it from falling (on multiple occasions). I wanted chrome but they only had black in store. Doesn't look bad

I was planning on uploading a pic of a metronome I got a few weeks (months?) ago but decided that even uploading the straplocks was pushing it

I've wondered about those Hennessey locks, since they come in a lot of colors Dunlop and Schaller don't. Could you compare them to those, or have you never used anything else?

Thank you kind sir!

And I haven't used anything else. Does it really matter? Although they *I think* have different mechanisms, they all do the same thing. And I really don't see how I can compare straplocks

But for these you have to pinch the bottom and push with your thumb so it really does require 3 fingers.

Noob question

The screws that came with the strap locks are shorter than the originals. Will this be a problem?

is the threading larger in diameter (not fine or course thread) than the other?

as long as the screw is a larger diameter what do is take a tooth pick and get as much wood glue as i can to fit in the hole, cut the tooth pick off flush with the body, screw in straplock, and wipe off extra glue, it will be coming out of the hole.

at least that is how i do it.

i personally only use schaller. realistically fail proof unless you are spinning the guitar over your head like an idiot. shallers grab the bottom of the lock and essentially cradle the end of the strap lock and even if the mechanism were to fail the guitar would still be sitting with the lock holding it.

thats how i do it, NEVER had a problem $.02

___________________


shorter isn't ideal, the thread coarseness and the diameter of the screw would matter more. if the screw could go in an out of the hole with you fingers going up and down, then you have a concern.

The diameter is the same. The lengths are different, so the hole that's in the guitar is deeper than the strap lock screw.

if you have read my post, thats what i do with my guitars. none have had a problem. 6 or so have schaller strap locks, installed the way i mentioned.. sometimes the screws are shorter. the glue and tooth pick is IMO the best option.

Oh........k. I asked someone a few hours ago and they said that it's fine if the screw is short and that nothing will happen......

And BTW, I exchanged the DD1 for a $100 cheap multi-fx which I hated so I returned that and ordered a TC Flashback. Been eyeing that for ages and now I realize why cheap pedals are frowned upon.
Honestly, the multi-fx sounded much worse than ANY amp I've tried. The acoustic sim on it was good though.

how do you like that 245?

i am debating buying one and tricking it out (locking tuners, better quality pups, coil taps, tone pros bridge)
#11
I love it.
I was planning on changing the pups out but decided that theyre good and just left them in. Neck is very comfy and that's what sold it to me.
