Alright, Basically I have a gig tomorrow. My SG has strap locks, but i'm using that as my backup guitar. My old mans Les Paul will be the main guitar which I don't want to put strap locks on since I have no permission to. Are there any ways of keeping the strap on, in the unlikely event it was to drop. It hasn't yet but I don't take that as proof it won't on the day.

So yeah, anything that won't scratch or leave residue.
I was thinking tape or somesort, liek duct tape, I dont have any though ahah.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

Just put your strap on, and duct tape it where the slit is at to keep it from coming loose.

Do this, except I would recommend using Gaffa tape instead of duct tape, simply because it leaves no residue if you take it off as soon as you're finished, and it is stronger, and holds better.

hmm i made mine out of a washer. i just cut out a fourth so that i could fit it in, then i put it between the top of the bolt and the strap. it takes some workmanship, but it hasnt failed me once

Use those plastic clips that come on bread bags. They can be kind of annoying to fit on, but they hold the strap on fine when you get them secure.
Studies show that 89.27% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

drill a small hole in a quarter. put strap between it and guitar (requires unscrewing strap piece). won't fail you once. plus, looks cool.

I agree, thats exactly what i do but with a washer. Never failed here either.
I used to drill a hole in a casino chip and do the same. Looks kinda funky.
