Acoustic Straps - ??????????????

I was wondering how you would recommend attaching a strap to an acoustic. *I've seen it done two ways:

1) *With a string on the headstock.
2) *With a strap button near the base of the neck.

I usually attach mine the first way, but I'd like to know how I would go about doing the second?

Acoustic Straps

Mine (Washburn EA20) has stock strap buttons: one at the back (ordinary position -- just above the 1/4" and XLR outputs) and another one in the base of the neck. It works pretty well. It's just like playing a Les Paul (with a larger body, of course).

Acoustic Straps

How would I go about adding a strap button at the base of the neck? *On the actual neck base itself? *How much would the required equipment cost?

Well, I don't know the price, but the person who's gonna install the strap button needs to be very accurate, as any mistakes in an acoustic has only one result: you lose it. In this case, you need to be very careful because you're going to make a drill hole in the base of the neck. It's better ask some expert about this, as I don't understand too much about acoustics.
