Strap Button Placement


Topic starter


I’m progressing well with my first build (thanks to the course and excellent kit) but am procrastinating over the neck side strap button placement.

My upper bout is quite pointed and I don’t think the strap button is going to go  well at it’s end.

I’m considering on the back of the upper bout. Any thoughts / other suggestions would be much appreciated. Equally, if I just need to man up and get the hole drilled, please tell me…

Go for it...The horn is pretty sharp but you can still put the button there if you like. Make sure the screw goes right down the centre of the horn - get some strap buttons with foam washers included and it will be fine. Ask Carol nicely enough and she might sell you some: @Queenofparts

Measure twice, cut once...

@markbailey Thank you. Advice much appreciated.
