Hi All,

I just purchased an LPJ time to get a strap and some new strap locks, looking for recommendations on what to get.

Thanks

I've used both Dunlop and Schaller in the past also and would trust my guitars with either. I prefer the way the Dunlop locks look and feel but I don't think they're objectively better. For straps I've been very pleased with my Levy's No 1 Stretch strap - played 3 hrs standing with a ~9lb Les Paul recently and didn't notice any discomfort during that time. It's this one: [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Levys-Leathers-MNO1-BLK-Acoustic-Guitar/dp/B003GY776M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394339537&sr=8-1&keywords=no+1+stretch+strap]Amazon.com : Levy's Leathers MNO1-BLK Acoustic Guitar Strap : Musical Instruments[/ame]

Any strap will do, it just depends on if you want leather, padded, etc.

For straplocks I've had Dunlop, Schaller, Ernie Ball, and Loxx.
All work well and are trust worthy, but my favortes are Loxx, very low profile; they don't stick out from the guitar hardly at all.

The Ernie Balls and Dunlops had a big enough strap button that you'd be able to use a strap not fitted with locks should you forget yours, so that could be a plus.

In keeping with the nature of the guitar, I've been recommending a piece of twine.:D:laugh2:

i have always had Dunlop straplocks, but on friday night at a gig i was playing the Dunlop came undone by itself. fortunately i was just standing there talking crap into the mic between songs at the time and just about caught my guitar as it headed south. this is now the second one that has done this so they are all getting changed to schallers.

i dont know if it is coincidence or not, but both times they have let go, it has been on the neck button on lps - maybe the angle that they sit at exposes a weakness in the latching mechanism or something but in any case it only needs to happen once for it to be a potentially very expensive accident.

Same as me. The Levys No.1 Stretch Strap and Schaller strap locks are my favoured combination.

I like the Schaller locks.

I use Couch straps mostly because they're about the longest ones out there. You can be fat and tall and still keep your guitar below your belt (where it belongs).

I've got two if this guy's straps. And I love them! Mine are non-leathers, but he also does some great leather work. And most importantly they are super comfortable and very well made.
