Thread: What straps are you using on JP guitars?

    Thanks for all the replies. Quick update on my quest:
    Looking to keep the green Levy strap in the picture of my original post. Was able to loosen it up quite a bit.
    I ordered a new set of Schaller “S locks”. Nice idea with the new longer post and thumbwheel design. Unfortunately, the design of the new actual strap button (noiseless) is stupid in that it entails a fixed screw that is thicker and shorter than the original screws used on the JP15. Not going to widen those screw holes. At which point the new design becomes kind of pointless though they are supposedly compatible with the older Schaller buttons. Didn’t trust that and I’m keeping the old ones. They rattle a bit but at least I know from 25 years of experience that they work (for a good 10 years or so before they wear out).

    I use the DiMarzio Clip Lock Straps on all my Balls.
    I got the wider strap for my JP7 and my Bongo 5.

    Btw the S Locks work fine with the older buttons. I've got the new locks on my straps and mostly old buttons on my guitars.

    I use Levy's straps on my JP7s, it's the black suede strap MS26 I believe. Very simple and plain straps but to me they look great on any color guitar and are comfy as well. I keep the strap short so that the guitar is roughly at the same height as when I'm sitting.

    I use a Levys seatbelt strap for my under-8lb guitars and a generic super padded leather one for my 8lb+ guitars. My JP6 is a hair over 7lbs. I can’t justify spending a lot of money on straps.

    I've been using all Dimarzio straps, probably because they are neon in color. And when I use straplocks, I've been switching my guitars over to the EB straplocks because they don't make noise like my old Schallers.

    I had forgotten that I have one of those tucked away in a box upstairs.

    Did I buy that from you?

    Possibly, after seeing someone here on the Bass side get a super wide strap with that emblem I contacted Double-Treble and brought in the 2.5" straps. We included them with pretty much all of the first run DD guitars we sold, as well as a few of the used ones. Heck, after Luke saw my DD strap I had an extra made up for him - I'll have to dig up the pic of his expression when I handed it to him.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    That would make sense. I got my Dargie from DaveB at Machinehead in the UK as it was new (anyone remember DaveB?).

    Strap was a nice extra. Must dig it out now!

    He was running Machinehead Music in Hertfordshire here in the UK. That went out of business and I never heard of him after that. I think his main business was property or something though?
