To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The screw holes matched the original strap buttons screws precisely so used them and not the provided ones to avoid weakening the fixture by cutting new threads using a different makers screw. Colour matched the Gold top guitar nicely too and fitted was only a few millimetres taller than standard strap fixtures and do not impede it fitting into its hard case. Recommended if your guitar is worth a grand or two and you never want to risk the strap failing and dropping the guitar. Can get cheaper Chinese clones for cheaper fender copies that work if not quite as pretty or as well engineered.
Easy to replace the standard fixings on my Black Gibson Les Paul. Gold for great with the existing gold hardware and you feel much more confident playing with these straps. I did use the rubber doughnut rings before but if you change strap when changing guitar that’s a pain, so these take seconds and give immediate secure fixing.
Great easy fit and a match in colour to the rest of my Ibanez's hardware. They feel really secure and are very easy to release or fit when needed. I have used these on my guitar on quite a few of my gigs and I can vouch for the secure fitting between guitar and strap. The only gripe I have is that when practicing with my guitar I can hear them squeak as the guitar strap relaxes tension on the guitar. This normally happens when I lean down to adjust amp, pedal settings. Small gripe I know but only a little annoying. Can't be heard when the full weight of the guitar is on the strap locks though.
Used for years, I have a black set of these used daily and are 25 years old. As long as the receiving end is securly screwed to the strap they will be fine - just occasionally make sure the screw is still tight. Way better than the dunlop cliplock which always ends up pulling the strap pin out...
Easy to fit and pretty much perfect in every way. Do not EVER perform windmilling power chords, lunges to the front of the stage or any other axeman antics without strap locks protecting your expensive pride and joy. You want the fans remembering the gig for the music and your energetic performance, and not for seeing a thousand pound plus guitar showing how easy it is to shear its headstock off.
Obviously disappointed they were not real gold!! Seriously, good product and good service - don't need to worry about my precious guitars hitting the deck - and can use one strap for all (so they look nice on the wall!!)
Excellent product. These are used by all guitarists in the know! Don't risk dropping your prized instrument by not investing in a set of these - it's not worth it! Easy to fit - even the most diy averse person can do it! And to cap it all they actually look great!
