    my girlfriend bought me a lovely fender strap for my birthday, and 1 end has like rope attached to it... i assume its for attaching to 1 of the bass saddles to make the strap longe but....
    Whats the correct way to attach it, i dont get it lol

    I do not believe this is the correct strap for your application

    Take out the string and just attach the strap to the button like normal.

    The string is to tie around the end of an acoustic guitar. Not needed with your bass, Use it for a shoe lace or something. PS There are no stupid questions.

    yeah I forgot to ask if the string came off. If so you are right back to a normal strap.

    thing is the strap is just say an inch or 2 to short comparedto how i like it....
    Would it be safe to use it on a bass or, is a bas to heavy

    Most that I have seen that come with a string are intended for an acoustic. It is probably safe if you are careful, but its probably to thin and will be uncomfortable if its designed for a much lighter instrument.

    I wouldn't trust it except possibly for a small hollow body. :cool:

    I would get a real padded strap designed for a bass. You will thank yourself later.
     
  11. Can't you just extend the strap? There's a spot where the strap doubles over, and if you shorten that you get a longer strap.
