can u guys suggest a good..
1. strap lock system thats cheap, please dont suggest using a washer, ive ruled it out

2. a good strap under $20 or so that would go well with it. i would prefer it be leather but i guess nylon or anything is fine. if this helps i have an epi vintage
g-400 in worn cherry. thanks in advance guys. theres no way my guitar is takin a freakin nosedive. if anyone here has a guitar with a strap button on the back that has found a good strap/strap lock combo, PLEASE tell me.

I use Dimarzios, they're the best out there.

both of those are the same thing (Schaller Strap Locks)

And then for the strap, i'd go with just a plain polyester Ernie Ball strap. They can either be very short or very very very long.

I've been using Schaller strap locks for the past 18 years and haven't ever had one fail on me.

I use Schallers's and they work like a charm. The Dimarzio clip lock's are supposed to be good too

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

Go for the dimarzio cliplock strap, i mean, its made out of seatbelt material, so you know its strong...

DiMarzio. Comes with a strap as well.

$15 for seat-belt material
$30 for Leather


Unscrew original pin, screw in new clip.

Assuming you're using Schaller locks:

1. remove old strap buttons
2. screw new Schaller buttons in their place.
3. install the locking mechanism in the strap holes on your strap.
4. lock strap to guitar.

That's about as idiot-proof as it gets.

With the Dimarzio, you can eliminate step 3 as the clips are already attached to the included strap.

You've just given me an idea, I'm pretty sure I've got a spare retractor style inertia real seatbelt in my car parts bin too. It's out of a Volvo so I can be pretty confident of it's durability. A lap-sash aircraft style one might be better though, cos it's got the big chunky adjustment thing on it.

Schaller and Dunlops are good for strap locks.

Planet Waves and Ernie Ball make good straps

My strap and locks:

Locks:



Just unscrew the old locks and screw these in deep.

Strap:

Two Carabiners



and

a length of chain at your usual strap length.



Hook the clips onto the ends of the chain and clip the chain to the eye-bolts. Most secure strap ever.

no they arent. after a couple of months, they ruin your guitar body paint so badly.

check out my ibanez HRG4 bitch. you want that to happen to your guitar? if u do get them then and ruin your guitar.


DONT GET THE DIMARZIO CLIPLOK's if you don't want any damage to your guitar.

I will never ever get another pair of these on any of my guitars. I'm happy with schaller locks.

I go with everyone who suggested Schaller straplocks. There the best and thats all I will ever use. I can't suggest a decent strap though as all I have ever used was a horrible Planet Waves strap back in the day and now a all I use are Levy's.

yeye levy's.

also for the dimarzio cliplock's, they are pretty big straps, they aren't for chest shredders.. unless you modify them somehow
