I have a viper, and of course it is neck heavy.

Is there anything I can do to eliminate this annoyance? Wider strap? (I use a leather one as it is)
And the strap button isn't on the horn, its behind.

i cured my fender's neck dive, using a shoulder pad that slides over an existing strap.


can you paint a pic of where ur buttons are?

If you feel liek it you can move the strap button closer to the neck a few CM's. That seems to work on some neck heavy guitars. I know that was a good fix for the Ibanez Xiphos, not sure about the Vipers though.

You can get a Codura Dimarzio Cliplock strap. Codura is meant to stick and not move That will keep the guitar from sliding around on your shoulder and stop it from diving.

How would the clip lock stap work? It looks like its just made of nylon

i had the same r problem on my thunderbird...
so i moved the stoplock to heel of the neck.
balanced a lot better.

eek. i have an lp where i added a button behind the neck. it made it better, but still feels a little strange.

basically, you want the buttons as far from each other as possible.

sometimes adding a button lower to the ground, on the ass end can also help.


shoe stringing the strap around the headstock will also work, but is a little meh.

U could try wider straps, supposedly they make it easier for the guitar to stay in one place

thats not bad idea

But shoe stringing a strap around the headstock of a metal guitar might look kinda of... well meh as you said.

you just dont want the guitar to be unbalanced, like it's fallling away from you.

try to find any examples on line for good placement.
