Thick, Leather strap
shoulder side natural, not silked
what you see is what it is

Guitar is long gone but the strap remains.
Some things you know to keep,
however after owning the SG Custom
I've never encountered another such diver

I might add, that none of the other SG examples, from which I picked the one I liked most,
of each model, suffered from "neck dive," either! That would be about 18 or so, other SG
examples, in total. So...??? :-k

Did you strap them on?

SG dive to several degrees, in my experience just about all of them do and a lot has to do with where you wear the guitar, if you strap'em high there is less run on the strap and the neck dive will be less. If the guitar is strapped very low that can help with neck dive as well. In between it gets tricky.

The new SG I bought has a slight neck dive, now, many would not consider this particular case a neck dive but I do. No way i could use a seat belt strap with it.

Of course...I always do that, to see how balanced they are, in a standing playing position. :D
