I just picked up a bass that has been on my GAS list forever...an Alembic Exploiter. If you are not familiar with the Exploiters, they are Explorer shaped basses modeled after John Entwistle's Spyder basses. Anyway, here's my question....the strap button is located at the neck heel...which I'm sure is the case for a lot of basses (like SG shaped basses, for instance). However, I've been playing Fender-like basses with the button on the top horn all of my life, so this totally new to me. I find when I play it with a strap, the bass has a tendency to lean forward, away from my body, so I have to hold it to back with my right arm to keep it playable. It has a strap lock, and I inverted the connector on the strap so it connects on top of the strap as opposed to underneath it. I thought that might help keep it closer to my body. I tried it first with the connector on the bottom of the strap, but it twists the strap when it connects. I'm not sure if this description makes sense without pictures, but I'm not sure how else to describe it. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to make this a little more comfortable to play? As an FYI, there is no way I'm going to relocate the strap button because this bass is way too beautiful to add any holes to.
