  1. Pinegrove Leather in Engleand sells something close to the StrapKeeper. You get 2 in a pack for about the same price with overseas shipping. They use a rubber washer over the endpin to hold it in place. I have both and both work well. https://www.pinegroveleather.com/guitar-accessories/guitar-strap-jack-endpin-adaptor
  2. I did business with Stan Jay since 1977. Got my 2004 Songwriter Deluxe Cutaway from him. He was always a pleasure to do business with. Condolences to the family. Rest in peace, Stan.
  3. I have both a StroboFlip and a StroboClip, plus a Snark. Both Petersons are great. The Clip actually has more tuning settings than the Flip. Both are responsive and accurate. But, for the price, you can't beat the Snark. I bought several on Amazon for $11 each and gave them as Christmas gifts. The Snark is also very responsive and accurate. Don
  4. Snark 1 in black can be had at Guitar Centers. I wasn't too keen about the blue and red colors either, until I actually saw them. The blue and red are darker than photographs show and have a metallic look to them. Also, they can be rotated in virtually any position so that you can have them on the back of the headstock. Right now you can buy the pair together on Amazon for under $30 total. http://www.amazon.com/Snark-Clip-Chromatic-Guitar-Tuner/dp/B003VWJ2K8/ref=pd_bxgy__img_a?ie=UTF8&m=A3P8TLUFEJW1Y9 DJ
  5. Green display? This doesn't sound like a Snark tuner. Was the body round or square? DJ
  6. The ebony buttons that I installed on my 2004 SWDC have been on for 5 years with no problems. Ebony is one of the hardest of musical woods. If they ever strip out, I'll just put the gold knobs back on. DJ
  7. I believe I ordered them from Elderly Music. http://www.elderly.com/accessories/items/ERB2.htm DJ
  8. I switched out the gold buttons with ebony knobs. I think they complement the ebony fret board and bridge. Also took a little weight off the headstock. DJ
  9. All the videos I have seen of McCartney playing "Yesterday" show him playing in the key of F. But upon closer inspection, he must tune down a step and play in G. DJ
  10. I have a 2004 SWDC. I would compare it to my Martin D-28, but with a cutaway, a Fishman UST and more bling. It is well-constructed of high quality woods, is full sounding unplugged and has a pleasant range of tones when plugged in. DJ
  11. And here is the reply that I got: LISTEN SIR !!! READ MY UPDATE !!! IT SAYS GIBSON ON THE ARM..I AM NOT MISREPRESENTING ANYTHING..IF YOU COULD READ YOU WOULD SEE IN MY UPDATE THAT I POSTED SOMEONE SAID ITS NOT A GIBSON !!! AND THAT I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT GUITARS...I DID NOT LIE..IT SAYS GIBSON !!!! NOW GO AWAY !!! When did Gibson start calling the headstock an "arm"? DJ

  13. This is the gadget that some swear by. http://tonerite.com/guitar/vmchk DJ
  14. The least invasive pickup system is the K&K pickup. It is three small transducers attached to the bridgeplate inside the guitar by removable adhesive or glued in . It can be wired to a Vintage jack which will fit the endpin hole. See the link below for the pickup and scroll down for the vintage jack link. It is one of the most accurate acoustic reproduction systems around. http://www.kksound.com/acousticguitar.html DJ
  15. I have to agree with Drathburn, there is a short circuit causing the battery to drain. The problem could be at the strapjack where the cord is plugged in. The circuit is supposed to open when you unplug the cord. DJ
