    mine didn't have the holes, so I made a pilot hole so it wouldn't split

    inspired by someone else here

    only fits up the the 2nd fret, so I might spread it open a bit

  2. Just be careful if you have a lacquer finished instrument. Some plastics/rubber will interact with the lacquer causing it to dissolve after prolonged contact. Not sure what the covering over the hook is made from, but I'd hate for you to learn it's incompatible the hard way.

    I have a custom effects pedal I built and finished with lacquer. It looked great. Then after a show I threw a cord on top of it and put the lid on my pedal board. I didn't gig with that rig for a couple of months and when I pulled the cover off I discovered that the rubber on the cord had wrecked the finish on my pedal. It was disappointing to say the least.

  4. Yeah, I’ve had what are probably those same tool hooks muck up the finish on a neck or two. I had pretty good luck putting shrink tubing over the hook. Ymmv.
