    I'm getting a little tired of dropping $20 a pop on Schaller straplocks, even though they work really well. We've all seen Eddie's setup, with the eyelet screws in place of strap buttons. But my question is, where do you get the strap with the right hooks??

    Just about any hardware store but keep in mind it might not fit in the case properly with those big round monstrosities on it.

    goto www.musicyo.com order a leather strap ($10)
    and then use #6 eyescrews in your guitar, goto the hardware store get 1\8" quicklinks and swivel snap hooks for use with 3\8" straps , run the quicklinks thru the eyeholes in the strap then connect them to the swivel hooks, it literally takes 1 minute to do and costs $5 in hardware.
    As for still fitting in your case it depends what case\guitar you have I know the wolfgangs still fit just fine and the 1984's or 5150's work in the tkl cases just fine.

    He is bowing down to your endless guitar knowledge would be my guess.

    I'm sitting here at work, read Rol's reply and actually said "Damn!" out loud. People probably think I'm nuts.

    You the man, Rol!

    I read how to do that a while back on the wolfgang report.
    I can't remember where it is though.
    Anyone know if that's still around? It had some interesting articles I never got around to reading
