thanks, Schizoid Man

ive got fenders
seem to do the job
and they werent overly expensive either
#3
The Dimarzio ones are nice and they have clips so you can take the strap off if you want, and lock it back in place when you want to play again.
#4
I've got the Dunlop duel system ones. They get the job done but they clank around and that bothers me. Maybe its just me tho.

I have one of these; terrific straplocks. They outlasted my Schallers and Dunlop set. I'm now buying one for all of my guitars

absolutely brilliant, after reading your post I went out to the garage, grabbed four washers and put them on my two guitars and dang, I've been wanting straplocks for a while and now I got them for a cost of nothing really and easy work and they actually look decent as well. Brilliant my friend

i still go with the 25 cents to buy a couple of washers...i do that and it works just fine.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

the only problem with removing the screw to add a washer, is whenever u remove the strap peg screwm u run the risk of enlarging the hole in the guitar.

yeah but dont you have to do that anyways when you put strap locks on?
#21
yea but they come with different screws.

i have real locks, but usually ill use a $2 dunlop disc that slips over the peg, until the peg gets loose.

you unscrew the screw that is in the strap peg and you take out the screw, peg, and little white felt piece. You then take the screw and put the peg back on it (this is all done before inserting it back into the guitar's drilled hole) then you put the washer on the screw, then you put the screw through the strap hole, then the white felt piece on after thet strap. You then put the screw back into the hole with everything in order and screw it back in and walla.

Dude, just get those Jim Dunlop Strap-Lok retainers, they are extremely cheap, and they work really well, they hold it stable and they are easy to install.
#25
I (whatever)-ith the washer idea. You can also use picks (which I've had more success with). Make sure the washers fit the screw though. I used crappy Gibson Medium picks and they work quite well. Fender Heavies would also work well.
#26
i've been using the washer trick for years.
i use a 2.5" long screw in the hole and i've never had to re-tighten.
i spin my guitar around by the strap when i'm feeling saucy.
