J-Custom RG1308 Recessed Strap Locks

Does anyone know who made this part? I need the inserts for these strap locks.

Re: J-Custom RG1308 Recessed Strap Locks

IIRC at the time somebody wanted a set so I asked and they were $60 each [x 2] so he didn't buy and I never stocked. I always assumed they were Gotoh but they could have been made by anybody. I never remember seeing the design anywhere else, but I don't look that hard anywhere else.

Thanks as always. I just found that they are Gotoh EPR-2-CK and ordered a pair.

Re: J-Custom RG1308 Recessed Strap Locks

That is not an EPR-2. EPR-2 you can see here.

Ibanez Catalogs

I think it was first used on the RG3120 in 1997. All 1996-00 JC's seem to use the recessed strap lock you posted. The EPR-2 is more of a combination of a standard strap pin and a strap lock. The ones on the early JC's only can function as a strap lock.

That's not to say that the locking mechanisms are different, so hopefully the parts you ordered will work with those recessed pieces.

I was told that the insert was the same, so I guess we'll see. Worst case scenario, I'll just swap the entire unit, I suppose.

Seymour Duncan has recessed strap locks. I have them on my ESP/LTD Mustaine DV8. Not sure if they are the same, but maybe you can make them work.
