I just purchased a Zakk Wylde audio Viking Flying V. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as a strap which won't allow the weight of the guitar to lean forward when you're playing it.

alanblackmore46 Get a wide leather strap that has the rough underside that will grip your shoulder.  Also I found that Strap Locks (I use Schaller) allow the strap to swivel so the guitar sits better.  
Guitars:
Jackson Kelly KE3 - MIJ (Distortion/Jazz)
Jackson DKMGT Dinky (EMG 81/85)
ESP E-II Eclipse Custom (JB/'59)
ESP LTD EC-1001FR (EMG 81/60)
Fender MIM Strat

Amps:
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster 212
Laney IronHeart IRT-Studio
Peavey Vypyr 30
Peavey ReValver Amp Sims
TOOOO many T.C. Electronic Pedals. . .

Put a strap button on the INSIDE of the top point of the V, about 3" in from the tip. Put the strap over the *front* of the guitar. Obi-wan, it's your only hope.

Is the nose dive so bad that it makes it difficult to play or is it just annoying when it wants to dive while you are resting? I have several V shaped guitars or varients thereof some of them are prone to nosedive but not so much as to make them difficult to play. A wide leather strap that is not smooth on the backside will help to some extent.

If is just annoying when resting like mine are I just learned to deal with it either holding the neck up with my left hand or resting my right hand on top of the upper horn to hold it steady.

A wider strap would definitely help with increased surface area and all. But a few pics of that bad boy wouldn't hurt :P

I'm curious regarding your opinion of the guitar.
