Steinberger strap hook

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by diegom, Apr 27, 2015.

  1. Are those still available from ANYWHERE??!!
    I finally decided to dust off my old stein-like bass (no name, no brand, all wood, set neck, kick-ass pickups), and I remembered why I had put it away: It has the annoying tendency to 'flip' on me, rotating until the pickups are facing down. I tried to attach the strap to the many other locations, but I came to the realization that I need the strap attachment 'outside' the body, like in the new Synapse bases.

    I contacted several outlets that sell the Synapse, but they do not sell the hook separately...

    Any ideas?

    Music Zoo is very reputable - and that's a great price. When I found mine for the Spirit I just sold it was more like $50 due to rarity.

  4. Thank you guys!
    The bass extender is out of stock, but I left my email address to notify me if/when it comes back.
    The guitar extender, which is available, is too short...

    I had fashioned something from a wooden hanger, but it kept breaking... I guess I'll have to try to make something out of metal.

    I have the same problem, but worse as its giving me agonising back cramps after I play so I can only use it sitting down (which I'd rather not do) so I'm desperate to get hold of one of these. Shame there aren't pre-drilled holes or this hook included as standard. Epic fail, Steinberger!
  7. I was wondering if there was enough of a need/want to order some custom-made hooks from a machine shop. I don't have the CAD expertise, but I managed to get what I believe is a pretty accurate image of one.
    This shop even offers a CAD program, and the prices seem reasonable... Sample Prices of Custom Machined Parts | eMachineShop

    Any further opinions or ideas?

    Please notify me when the steinberger extender comes in. I recently built a prototype for my Cort, but that model while fixing the balance problem, didn't take into consideration the folding away aspect. With it on, I can't put the bass in it's case. I would be up for a custom model if it's not to expensive.
