gear building and customising?? straplocks?

Dunlop, but that little plastic disk isn't a mod to your guitar...

I have Schallers on my LP, they're really good, but if you also have an LP, you'll have to either insert toothpicks into the bottom screw hole or file the head of the Gibson screw (I did the second one).

I've never tried Dunlop though.

In my experience, Schallers are the best. They've got a little extra security since they wrap around the entire strap button, almost like a cup. If the plunger in the lock fails, you've still got that cup part holding the strap on.

I have two sets of Schallers (one isn't on anything at the moment, as they are going on my double neck). The other set is on my RG. I really like them.

They usually have 'em in little buckets at the guitarstore counter.

I find washers to be cheaper and more durable.

I found washers to be harmful and eventually lead to stripping. Added onto the fact that you wont' be able ot take off the strap without unscrewing.

I personally liek schallers, they are solid metal and have a very sturdy design, it feels like it wont' break on you.

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.
