    I posted this back in club II. but i may have better chance at getting an answer without looking through 50 pages:

    I'm thinking of moving the strap pin on my goth thunderbird and I have two locations in mind and wanted your advice:
    1- replace existing top right bolt screw with pin
    2- drill hole in neck plate (gibson style)

    I'm getting dunlop dual system straplocks for the bird.

    Feedback, opinions, etc. which is better.
    NOTE: I've previously moved the bottom pin to the left of the bass and the pictures are only for reference to my locations.

    thanks for your help.

    I think I'm going to try drilling into the plate for the new strap location on my Epi Goth. Don't know if that is the "best" location but it is close to where the button is on my Gibson and I have no issues with neck dive on the Gibson at all.

    That's how my Epi came from the factory.

    I've yet to played it standing up since I haven't installed my straplocks.

    I'll post a full report whenever I finally do it :bassist:

    pics of mine will be coming shortly..
     
  18. Greco T Birds are great! That is a great price, but shipping may double that, at least.
     
  19. The ad says shipping to North America is $135, which would make the total $700 even. Still seems like a pretty good price....if you trust it to not get damaged in transit.
