Hey all you UGers. I know this is where to look for my problem that is increasingly pissing me off. I have a Charvel bass. I bought it really cheap so no complaints except that it is VERY top heavy. If i just leave it hanging there the head will hit the ground. What can I possibly do to fix this. Or at least make it less noticeable. Thanks

Ah, the Charvel bass. Twas my first... so many memories.

Anyway, they're neck-dive city. The only way to fix it is to move one of the strap buttons. I recommend moving the strap button on the the butt a bit closer to you (farther from the input jack). Usually, you move the button on one of the horns, but Charvel horns are quite thin.

Like they said A bigger leather strap is good as it keeps more friction with your shoulder and feels more comfortable and also move the strap button. anybody got an idea for how far he should move it? I'd guess about an inch would do but i'm not sure.

See, technically, there's no point too high. There's no such thing as 'body heavy', since you'll be resting your bass on your shoulder. Literally try to hold the strap towards the body of your bass at a certain point and see if it balances better. That said, I think 1 or 2 inches at the butt end closer to you will make it better. On the underside of the cutaway might do it too, bit I think the cutaway is too thin and the strings will go right through.
