    this seems like a simple question, but it's been bugging the heck out of me... how do you get a strap on the dang thing? the strap button is directly below the neck heel, and neither my locking strap or leather strap will go on there. Will only a cheapy strap do? doesn't matter too much, the thing weighs less than my laptop...

    I presume you are talking about a '63 double cut-away (RI), but it is probably the same as my newly acquired vintage '65 Silvertone, which is a Dano.

    Try a nylon Ernie Ball strap.

    Is the strap button similar in position to the one below?

  5. Same problem on my Longhorn.

    With a Schaller straplock, you can bring it in from the side if the strap is not too wide or too thick.
