so I'm too cheap to spring for straplocks...

so I drilled a hole in a quarter and a nickle for each 'strapbutton' and used the felt circles from the original strap buttons to protect the finish. Anyone else do this?

I really dont think it needs pictures. Its just guitar-felt circle-nickle-strap-quarter-screw

besides it being frowned upon to drill holes in currency does anyone else see a downside to this? I'm still wondering if the screws are going to rip out after time but hopefully having a coin on each side will keep that from happening.

Or you could use washers... That's what I did.

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

$14.40, actually.

Yes, I was going to make a joke about that in my original post but decided against it.

The way I see it:
straplocks - $15
2 quarters, 2 nickels - $0.60
2 washers - __<$0.50

but hey, it was easier than finding the right washer- right?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I don't actually have any form of strap locking on my guitars but apparently if you unscrew your straplock, and screw it back in but flip it round, it'll do the same job.

Even cheaper.

lol....*goes to cover coins with tape*


Edit: the way things are going over here right now maybe what we need is to take some currency out of circulation, that'll increase the value of the dollar XD

Wel apparently defacing currency is treason, punishable by death so your choice, death or sticky out straplocks
(In the UK it is apparently).
