Right, so I love my SG to death... but I hate the damn plunge to the floor it takes every single time I let go of the neck... are there options or nay nay?

Gimme a while, I'll draw you what I did with my flying v's strap.


EDIT: Don't worry, your SG isn't bolt-on, so it wouldn't work.

Get a better strap for starters. Something thicker, and "sticky" like plush leather or rough cotton.

LOL. (That was siggable...)

He doesn't mean that, "for starters" is a phrase for the FIRST thing you should do to solve your problem, etc.

By "for starters" he meant "first of all".

Lol, not what he meant. He meant to get a nice leather strap first. Then if that doesn't do it, relocate the strap button.

strap locks!


Unfortunately not true. I just put some on my SG and it's still just as bad as it was before.

strap locks are good work just fine. i dropped my les paul the first day i got it so i rushed out and got strap locks for my replacement

oh wow really that sucks then. how does it still fall off
#18
I wouldn't go putting holes in your Gibson! A different strap design with some sort of shoulder support would probably help. The starplocks are great for keeping your strap on the guitar but won't do diddily for stopping the neck dive as it's a balane issue with SGs.
#19
Strap locks wouldn't help, would they?
I thought they just prevent the strap from coming undone.
TS is saying he just lets go of the neck and the whole guitar just sinks down because of the position of the strap buttons...correct?

Change the length of the strap. That was happening to my Les Paul but I just shortened the strap and it was fine.

I had the same problem with my Epi Thunderbird bass. Lace an additional strap (from a backpack or something) that you can run your arm through. Worked great for me. Keeps it in place and isn't noticable.

I have an SG and have the same problem. Girlfriend bought me a 3.5" leather strap and my neckdive problems went away. Simple solution, just make sure the strap is secure and if you don't think it is then get strap locks.

He doesn't mean that the strap is falling off; what he means is that the SG is famously neck heavy so when you let go of the neck it tends to swing down so the headstock faces the floor which can be anywhere from awkward to damaging to your guitar.

TS: relocate your strap button as above or get a really good strap (leather or simliar), that should sort it.
