moved one of the strap buttons on my RG7421...



tried one position first, it was a little better, but not perfect... so i tried one more... and it was perfect... i basically changed the balance of the guitar when i'm wearing the strap... now it sits at more of an upward angle where it used to sit basically flat... it also moved it over a few inches to the left, which made upper fret access easy. the guitar needs a new paintjob anyways, since it took a spill last night(can read the thread on it here.. http://www.jemsite.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=35060 )... i'm gonna go get the drill and recess that straplock now... i'll post pics later

hey that's pretty cool!
I didn't realize that you could recess the straplock.
I used to mess with the location of my strap buttons on my OLD guitars. lately, I figure they're fine just the way they are.

...but that's me
