I have an Ibanez AR250, but its really, really neck heavy. The strap button is currently on the top horn, but I've heard that changing it to the base of the neck on the back (like some SGs) will help correct this problem. Is this true?

I have an SG, and I'm considering moving the strap button up to the horn to fix the balance problem. So I'd say keep it like it is. Have you tried using a different strap?

Moving it to the back of the neck will make it worse!

Don't do it. It's the main reason why SGs are 'top heavy'.

They just placed it on the back so it wouldn't ruin the top horn.

Ok then. Now I need some other suggestions on how to fix the balance problem. Don't say a new strap, because that doesn't actually fix the problem of the guitar being unbalanced.

maybe moving the strap button on the bottom of the guitar would work?

a thick leather or similar strap helps an unbalanced guitar stay put.
so does adding weight to the control cavity.

the farther away the two pegs are, the more balanced the guitar will be, so consider adding a peg at the other end too.

I'm interesting in possibly adding weight, but I have no idea if there is a particular way of doing this.

Also, what do you mean by putting a peg at the other end? Right now, it has the same peg positions as a double cut LP.

you can move or add a peg at either end, which is what i meant.

you can move the peg near the neck or near the ass.

just as long as you are moving the pegs away from each other.

and some guys will add fishing weights to the pup cavity, or hanging off the ass end of the guitar but i wouldnt bother doing that.

instead i bought a strap with a shoulder pad, it doesnt dive anymore.

i think he means move the peg at the bottom of the guitar around until it doesnt dive
