BEST STRAP FOR LP

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Just got my LP Custom 3 weeks ago and I am looking for the best strap for it as it is quite heavy.... I got a planet wave 4 inch strap but last night the strap slipped off!! its good I was holding the guitar quite well or else would have been disaster. I need suggestions on a really nice strap and if the planet waves strap is ok should I get a lock(dunlop?) to lock the strap so as to avoid any accidents in the future or any other brand....

 

Appreciate any help

 

Cheers

+1 on schallers

 

Put those on my LP-Studio about five years ago, now I have them on all my guitars!

 

A clever solution that don't require much modification on your guitar, just keep the old strap-buttons so you can restore it later if you for any reason would change your mind.

Strap locks are the answer you're looking for if the problem is the strap slipping off. I don't care what strap it is, who made it or what it costs, I don't trust any of them without strap locks.

 

+1 for Shallers

 

As for which strap, there are tons of them out there in various price ranges; you can buy a cheap nylon one for $10 or pay upwards of $200 for a custom strap. Personally, I like plain leather with the underside being suede so it doesn't slide around.

No toothpicks are needed; I've never had a problem installing strap locks on any of my guitars, and that ranges from Gibsons to Fenders, to Ibanezes to a Guild and even a Reverend. The screws that come with Shallers have always fit just fine but, in being a little paranoid, I always try to use the screw that were in the original buttons as long as the screw's head fits inside the strap lock button.

being 16 i dont really mind how heavy the guitar is or how comfortable my strap is but i really like these dimarzio straps that came on my LP. the have parts that you just screw into the guitar and have clips on them, then the strap just clips on.

 

these are them. i gues they actually have more then just a two inch one now.
