I dont think you have to drill them in.

I recommend the schallers or the Dimarzio cliplock.

Thanks jb_designs.

You can get these small plastic rings that just twist around the peg after you put the strap on.

They're like 50 cents each, and mine have never failed.

No drilling required.

swig-top grolsch beer has a red washer - pop it open and take the washer off and use it as a strap lock.

I play standing up and gig with these every friday and saturday and they never fail.

Get the Dunlop ones then.

I have them on two guitars and didn't have to drill anything.

the dunlop screws are both wider and longer then the screws on the stock strap buttons.

the directions say "drill a hole with a 7/64" drill bit, 7/8" deep.) im not comfortable with doing it, nor can i find someone to do it for me, nor would my parents allow me.

how did you do it seagull?

Is it hard to take the strap off with it on?

That's the whole idea.

I have Dunlop Straploks and I used the same hole from the stock peg screw.

No problem.

The Dunlops will just screw right in. No drilling required. They are only a hair bigger than most stock screws. In general, unless you are screwing in a much larger screw than normal, the larger screw will go into the smaller hole. A perfect example of this is when you drill a pilot hole for a screw.

On a side note, I prefer Schaller; easier to take apart and reassemble, plus they feel more secure. Dunlop work well too, but they are a pain in the ass to use and the push in button doesn't always want to work.

id go with the dimarzio clipstrap, its pretty comfortable and i throw my LP around with them all the time no prob
NOPE

I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

I have Schallars on my PRS, and I just used the screws that were originally on the guitar for the locks instead of the ones it came with.
