Removing the strap buttons from a rickenbacker

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Jacoproud, Apr 13, 2002.

  1. Can anyone tell me the correct/best way to remove the strap buttons/holders from a rickenbacker 4001? I wish to replace them with Schaller strap locks. Also, is there a specific strap lock I can buy for rickenbacker basses so i can don't need to remove the buttons/holders and keep it all 'stock'.

    Thanks :)

    Rickenbacker makes custom Schaller-type buttons that are a direct replacement for the stock ones. The Rickenbacker Page is one on-line dealer that sells them.
