Hi Sheldon, I have dunlop straplocks on my combustion, I like the design of dunlop but the strap is far from the body so I was thinking of installing the flush mount dunlop straplocks, Is the upper horn thick enough the drill in the pin in your opinion? Or do you suggest anything else? thanks

The horn is too thin for the flush mount style. An alternate would be to use a flush mount on the butt end and permanently mount the strap to horn by removing the button, installing a black washer on the button, then the strap, then screw the assembly back onto the horn.

Have a look at Schaller's strap locks, it looks like they'll bring your strap in closer to your bass than the Dunlop ones will. Plus if you break/mislay your strap then you can still use a normal strap, just like with the Dunlop strap lock, but unlike the Dunlog Flush-mount. Edit: watch out with Schaller's that the nut is nice and tight - there's no failsafe so if the nut falls off, then the strap isn't locked any more, it's just held like with a normal strap stud.

[quote:ryqeydi4]thanks for the tip Sheldon, just wondering what straplocks everybody use? And has anyone tried the Loxx straplocks? [/quote:ryqeydi4] Hey guys. I found this site by just doing a google search. I happen to be the LOXX sales rep, and I wanted to let you know that our website is up and running, which has our products as well as a comparison between LOXX and Schaller style strap locks. I won't push it as I'm not trying to solicit but let me know if you have any questions. www.loxxusa.com

Interesting comparison, that. Thanks. I'd forgotten that if ever the Schaller's nut comes off then I'm left with a simple strap stud. I'd best check all my straps and put some Loctite Blue on those nuts before it's too late.

If you have any questions about our product, get ahold of me here or at kerry at (loxxusa) dot com. If there is one thing I would emphasize about LOXX is that the design has been used for over 80 years in the automotive industry for snapping convertible tops to cars, and they've sold over 100 million for that sort of purpose. It's not a new product, and it's been tested in far worse conditions than any guitarist ever will put it through. Our product is made in Germany as well.

Of course. This seems like a pretty cool forum. I'd love to get my hands on one of your guitars at some point.
