    I have a '97 Warwick N/T Thumb 5 string that currently has a set of jim dunlop recessed strap locks on it that for some reason tend to have the strap "buttons" slip out at the most inconvinient times. Is there anyway I can remove these and use a set of schallers or something instead. I'm going to have to have something to fill in the space where the old dunlops where recessed into the body. Any ideas, tips ,whatever??:( :confused: ....Thanx guys:D

    You could plug the holes with a dowel glued in place, then redrill the dowel to the size of hole required for the other brand of strap locks/buttons.
