Hey

I just got the ESP Eclipse 2, as some of you might know, and i asked the guy in the shop to put some Dunlop straplocks on, so when i got home, went to try it out, it fell straight off, and when smack on the floor.
It looks like there's no damage at all, so thats good.
Will get pictures next week, as i'm getting it checked and setup by a local luthier.

you do know you have to lock strap locks unsurprisingly. if its not that go get your money back and tell the manager about it
the guy wont be trusted again in case he breaks a guitar
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

You didn't put it on right, it happened to me as well, but i caught it before it hit the ground.

I don't like the Dunlops, especially since I'm an SG user. One bump of the release button with my hip bone or something and it's goodbye guitar.

buy a set of Schaller strap locks.... they're the most reliable kind of locks on the market!

I use schallers on all my guitars. I have had one mishap, somehow at a gig, the nut on the strap portion of the lock loosened up and it and the washer fell off during a set. Found it afterwards. Whole unit stayed locked together though. Could have been trouble though if I leaned the wrong way.

That said though, it just taught me I need to check them periodically just in case. Haven't had a repeat problem since then, so I guess it was a random fluke. Mechanically speaking though, they are very simple (less parts to fail) and the lock cups the strap button with a substantial amount of metal. It's a pretty strong elegant simple design. And you have to pull to release it so it takes a more positive action than a push button to let it go.

I bought my Schaller straplocks from Thomann.de, but there should be atleast one decent shop in the UK who has them too.....

and you can put them on yourself.... all it takes is 5 minutes and a screwdriver

Yeah they don't take long to put on. I live in the US and I've had to roder all of mine, none of my local stores ever seem to have them and half the online places don't have them in stock. I don't know why they're so tough to come across for me, but I'll stick with em as they work and they're a long proven design.

As far as the straplocks go, just make sure it goes in and clips. Takes 2 seconds. Standard on my Carvin. Have had absolutely no trouble whatsoever.
