dimarzio cliplock straps

  1. Classified Ads: Guitars and Gear
    I have a few new military-esque DiMarzio Cliplock straps for sale or trade... 15 shipped here in the US. Might trade a few or all for black F spaced humbuckers. Box of strings maybe? Whatever, I'm not using them...

    DiMarzio Cliplocks. Widely regarded as some of the best, most durable, utilitarian straps available to gigging guitarists. I have a lime green one on a sparkle blue RG421 and a black one on a natural mahogany RG321. These straps take a beating and ask for more. I run, jump, and generally put...

    I've got 3 Ibanez guitars, and my now-10+ years old cliplock strap doesn't "fit" any of them. Basically, the original strap button screws from the guitars are too thick to pass through the brass washer that was included with the strap. So I have to forgo the brass washer to use it. This isn't...

    Lets hear all the horror stories of your axes first damaging blows. Mine came from a playful roomate. I asked for my lighter... instead of handing it to me, he decided 80 MPH was an apprioate speed to throw it at me . He hit the jem, I hit the ceiling then threw the first hard thing I could find...

    I've heard some talk as to how the ClipLock straps are too long for those of us who like to play relatively higher (like Steve Howe, etc). Is it really that bad? I talked to my local DiMarzio dealer over a week ago about placing an order of the shorter ones. He kept looking at me like I was...

    I'm in the process of deciding which strapsystem to purchase for my guitar. I'd obviously like something reliable, and (this is important) something which you can strap very high. Sure, I can play with my guitar which the bridge pickup in of my bellybutton, but not to the best of my abilities...

    Does anyone sell only the ends that connect to the guitar? Is it a good financial decision to only purchase the ends, or is it cheaper to buy one strap for each guitar? TIA

    Hey, does anybody here have any firsthand info on the Leather Cliplock straps Dimarzio makes now? I have an older cliplock but have always liked leather straps more than the seatbelt material ones and am really thinking of buying one of these. I haven't been able to find much on the net other...

    Hey there boys n' girls! Is there anyone who knows where I can find strap locks for my JEM? (JEM7DBK). Do I have to order special designed straps for the guitar, or can I find any kind of regular straps for all JEM's? Anyone who knows?

    I just want to pass on a recent dealing I had with DiMarzio. I'm quite a sad Yngwie fan. I know the issues everyone has with him. Still love him. Have since I was very young. What ya gonna do? Got everything. All the albums, the Japanese DVDs, the signature gear, you know how it goes. Sad, sad...

    Hi, Apologies for the frivolous nature of this... I'm about to get a new strap for my vsbl, I'm thinking about getting a dimarzio cliplock. This means I have a choice of colours, the local shops don't stock them so I'd like some recomendations... Black would be the safe choice but how...

    ...from waist high, it was hung around my neck, the strap unhooked from the left hook and the axe slammed into the wooden floor back first and then turned on the string side from the impact !!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :( :( :( the guitar has of course detuned a significant amount...

    Short a short question. Does anyone know what kind of guitar straps Steve Vai used on his UV77MC guitars. They were these green straps. Who made them? Where can I get one with that color? Kind Regards André [/img]

    Hi guys, Just got a new guitar and had it setup prior to receiving the guitar (pictures and story here: Advice needed: What would you do? (fixed bridge Ibanez)). Anyway, I noticed that the strings-fretboard are so silky and slippery. (I haven't used this guitar tech before). I have a feeling...

    I just got a new UV777BK in the mail a few days ago. I love it, it's the best guitar I've ever played. There is one problem I am having with it though, maybe someone here has a fix for it. The neck of the guitar seems to weigh more than the body (this guitar is extremly light). The problem is...

    I bought Schaller straplocks for my JEM, but the screws are much smaller so they really aren't secure. The JEM's original screws for the buttons don't fit through the Schallers. I curious what others are using or options I might be missing. Thanks.
