Where to get those silver clipstraps? - They're not cheesy!

I mean the same straps that came with the JS10 or JSCP. I want a couple for my other guitars and tried to order one through Guitar Center. After a few days they told me that they had contacted Dimazio and were told that they were only one-off jobbies for the limited JS run. Sounds odd to me, since Dimarzio made me clear pickups identical to the ones in the JSCP. It only took a phone call.

Can anyone confirm or support this?

Or tell me where I can get any of these cool straps?

Thanks,
Eric

Cool that they made you the clear-bobbin pups What model did you get?

BTW, the CP didn't come with any strap, AFAIK

I emailed DiMarzio last year inquiring about clear cliplock straps, and they told me that they had none left over from the limited run they did for the JS10ths. They had silver cables and that's it.

That's amazing that they made some clear bobbin pickups for you. I wanted to get some gray ones like the PAF7s on the K7 models, and they declined.

Odd, I just got the number from their site and called them up. I got the same as in the JSCP, a Fred and PAF Pro. They told me I could get it directly from them for 99 each, or I could go to a dealer and place the order there. So I drove over to guitar store and told them the name of the guy I had just spoken to. The salesman called him up and gave the order through, running me 69 per pickup. I was also surprised it was so easy. It took four days for the pickups to be wound, and then shipping time on top of that.

But I want one of those straps! Does anybody know of any similar clipstraps, i.e. not from Dimarzio? I know there are some imitation ones around.

iain, I don't know about yours, but my JSCP #003 came with a strap, bag, cable and silver case (identical to the JS10 case but with a millenium plaque on it). Mind you, I got a European one...

Crap, these distributors cause more confusion than anything when they order custom cases!

I ordered my silver dimarzio strap from Dimarzio. *That was about 2 or 3 years ago.

hey babahi: i don't think you need to emphasize the non-cheesy-ness of a silver strap in a forum where everyone loves transparent, fluorescent, multicolored, and other sort of guitars. and of course let's not forget the name of the site comes from a guitar with an animal named handle!

I saw a couple of silver straps (and cables) at a local guitar shop here in Finland. Don't know if they have them anymore though...

Nuno:
I put the silver strap on my UV. *To clarify all the leather is silver the only part that is black is the plastic "anchor” that screws to the guitar. *

I can't stand those black anchors. *Why couldn't they just make the silver straps the same as all the other cliplocks? * :angry:

I agree with you Jason, but on my UV777PBK u can barely notice the black anchors. *I am sure you can really notice them on the JS10th.
