    I just bought an 8-string Rogue bass and it only has the strap button at the back. I'm apprehensive about drilling into the body to install another strap button. My thought was to extend one of the 6 neck bolts and putting a strap button there. I've got an Epiphone SG that has a neck bolt strap button so I know they have them. I went to a couple local music stores and they said I'd have to have one custom made. I was just wonderin' if there is a place I could pick one up or if I'm overlooking something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
