  • What's Your Strap or Strap Lock Solution For A Heavy Les Paul?

    So what's your gigging strap solution for a heavy or valuable Les Paul? I may just stay with Schaller strap locks. I have three guitars with them on it and several nice straps with them and as long as they don't let go, and so far none have (knocks on wood), they seem decent. But then again I'd like to get something wide and permanently mount it on the guitar with a washer but then the strap wouldn't fit in the Gibson case or do you make that work somehow?



    What do you do?



    ***It's a Gibson Traditional Plus
    ELP92SD -> some pedals -> MarkIV -> Rectifier 2x12 cab

        I use luggage straps as guitar straps and I use canvas key chains as strap locks. You can buy them at Lowe's or Home Depot















        Used these for years with no issues

                For my Les Paul I use a wide leather strap and a couple of these





                I like them because they keep the strap flush with the body and are reliable.

                I leave a strap attached to each of my work guitars.

                    I drive a hole through a bottle cap, and screw the strap under the cap. Problem solved.

                        I put on Dunlop strap locks shortly after getting my LP Traditional a few years ago. They've worked well for me in the past. I use a soft, wide strap I've had for years. Works well.

                            I like Dunlop flush mount straplocks myself. Most will hesitate to drill a 1/4" hole in there guitar but I have no issues doing that.
