ES175 Steve Howe Strap stud

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of buying one of these. I understand that there is no strap stud in the neck position. Advice re fiting one? where? warranty issues?

 

Thanks, Ian

It's a hot-button issue, to coin a phrase. :-# Run yourself a search on "strap button" and see the results (hint: I agree with Frank Ford from frets.com (Gryphon Guitars, Luthier's Mercantile) about placement on the neck heel of thicker guitars rather than in back of the neck block but L5larry who knows his stuff has a different point of view on this, so read up and decide for yourself).

 

I imagine that Customer Service or an authorized Gibson service center would give you their take on the recommended location.
