First of all, these guys are annoying. I'm seriously considering warning them. But you can do something like move the neck strap button closer to the headstock or putting some sort of weight in the cavity.

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

You really should have looked at it when you purchased the guitar as to whether or not it's a good player.

First, I'd find some type of tacky textured stuff to put on the strap (beads of hot glue) then add a little weight to the bottom of the guitar body.

I'd blame the guitar store for not setting you up right. Greedy arseholes.

Mmm, in my experience Samicks are bad guitars, and I guarantee the unbalancing won't be the only problem it will give you. If I were you I'd sell it and get something a bit more decent, but hey, that's just my experience, maybe yours is better.

Warning us with what? A wet noodle? You're not a mod or anything, all you can do is report, and nobody here has done anything wrong. I sense a detrollance in the force.

To the TS: is THIS your card?

Yeah, seems like it would be a little top-heavy. Develop a technique of resting your elbow on the lower contour of the guitar while playing, and keep a firm grip on the neck with your fretting hand. With practice, it'll even out.

When I play a SG which known to be a very neck heavy guitar I use a strap that doesnt slide on my shoulder and it holds it in place. If that makes sense.
