Re: one more question cliplocks
OR you could just widen the holes on the cliplocks with a soldering iron so that it's big enough to fit over the SMALL end of the strap button (you have to take the strap button off of course) then fit the clip lok on the strap button, then screw the strap button back onto the guitar. You use the original screws and strap buttons, you only modify the cliplock. I have done this with all 7 of my electrics and it works great. It's just a little bit of work to make the holes bigger, but it's worth it. I came up with this idea when I 1st got my VWH. I liked the gold strap buttons and didn't want to lose them, so I came up with the idea of making the hole on the cliplock big enough to fit over the small end, but not the big end of course so it doesn't fall off(that would of course defeat the purpose of the clip locks) D'marzio should make their product to work like this to begin with.
