After reading of other folks use of a shelf bracket as a strap button extender I decided to try it out myself. This is my poor, abused XZ-2db with the bracket attached. I put it "upside down" to try and use the lip of the bracket to catch a strap or attachment of some sort (it's not big enough and doesn't work very well at that angle). While it does move the strap button out it doesn't sit quite the same as a bass with the body out to that point would. So it's not quite what I had hoped for when I put it on there. I'm going to give it a week of tryout and see if it stays or I just go back to using the additional strap button on the back. If it stays I'll have to either paint it black or wrap it with electrical tape to make it less obtrusive. I need to find some small stickers to cover up the holes from previous experiments on this poor thing (just to keep the finish from chipping any more around the holes).
