Re: Strap Locks

i like schallers. it's either those or dimarzio cliplocks for me.
my dunlops go on my basses.
ibanez's japanese strap buttons are awesome for being oversized. the stock jackson's are nice, too.

Re: Strap Locks

DiMarzio strap locks are great for the price.

Re: Strap Locks

I like the Planet Waves Planet-Lock straps. You don't need new pins or to mess with the guitar at all. Only problem, they don't work very well with Explorer shapes unless the pin is on the back.

Schallers are the only way to go!! The down side is they only last for 150 years, my main set is a fourth generation...

Seriously though I love them!!

Re: Strap Locks

I prefer either Schallers or the oversized options.

I used DiMarzio Cliplocks for many years. Then one day I bought a new guitar which didn't have them. Over the weeks I noticed there was something really aesthetically pleasing about the guitar, but couldn't put my finger on it. Then the penny dropped and I realised it looked so much better because it didn't have the permanently attached strap bits hanging off. I guessed I'd got so used to them I never questioned them. I took them off my other guitars and much prefer the look of my guitars now they don't have bits of nylon and plastic hanging of 'em and swinging freely!!!

I also found DiMarzio Cliplocks ended up damaging my guitars over the years, and were also a bit of a pain when putting guitars in cases.

I've also PM'd you mate.....
