I have just bought a epiphone flying V which plays and sounds really good but there is a problem with the weighting i.e. the headstock is too heavy compared with the body so the guitar head always drops to towards the ground when I'm just standing with the guitar. Is there anyway to combat this problem?

Move the top strap button more into the guitar

e.g.

/o \

to

/ o\


Wouldn't that make it worse?

Or maybe I cant picture it right.

I've never tried this particular V but wheres the upper strap pin? is it at the back to the side of the body near the neck joint?

cause my jackson KVX10 has that kind of pin placement due to the bolt on plate, but for flying V's thats a bad place for the pins to be cause it means the weight cant be distributed properly resulting in the aforementioned headstock dive

if you can see if its possible to move the strap pin so its where it would be on a set neck guitar (assuming I have this correct) plus invest ina leather strap they have better grip in either case
Gear:
Dean Razorback V 255 (explosion finish)
Jackson KX10 (amber sunburst)
