:D People are going talk shit about "using the search function," but any time I can put my hand up and vote for Schaller, I will! :laugh2: I've got them on all of my Les Pauls.

Wha??? We've never done this before? :laugh2:

Schallers on everything . Even my dog.

There is a reason you see 99.9% of all professional guitarists with them.

And for the record... I have used Dunlops, and don't trust them nor do I like how they function. (You know - "don't hate it til you've tried it" - Tried it, Didn't like it!)

Nope. A few things to keep in mind. The washer goes on TOP of the strap (some people put them on the bottom, and then complain that "my strap slips off of schaller locks..." '...because I'm an idiot' is the correct 2nd half of that statement!!); you'll need to tighten the nut every couple of days for the first week or so while the leather strap ends are compressing; the strap buttons need to be very secure on the body... Thats about it. Just keep an eye on that nut on TOP of the washer on your strap - I check mine every time I put my guitar on.

No problem. Like I said I put them on everything, When I get a guitar I get the Schallers at that very moment also.

Congrats on the new LP! Better post a pic in here to repay us for this wonderful advice! :naughty:

Here's another thing to keep in mind - Schaller screws may be thinner than your Gibson screws. Check out this thread from earlier tonight where we talked about shimming the holes:

Very nice! I used to have a Studio, and wish like hell I had that guitar back. I like the grain on the left side - my Elitist Std. has the same thing going on:
