Hey guys,

I'm looking for a guitar strap with pretty high friction in the shoulder area. The problem is that I own a '77 Ibanez Artist 2617 and its neck is VERY heavy so I can never keep it up like I want to (like I can do with a jackson dinky for example..). My current strap is:

and

and it doesn't really do the trick. My teacher suggested that I stick some velcro to it (lol) but I'd rather find a strap with a lot of friction.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

i suggest putting screws through the strap and screwing them into your clavicle... does the trick for me.

They make cotton straps, leather straps, etc. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitar click on the thing that says straps and browse for anything that's not nylon.

Does anybody has a link to one of those wide leather straps if you guys bought them online?

you could also get one of those no-slip dashboard things for your cellphone from radioshack. then just sew or pin it onto your strap. (they only cost 5 bucks)

What about that kind of spongy stuff that people put on tables and stuff to keep things from sliding around? I can't think of what it's called, but it would work.
