    you know the ones I mean..! The bits of bootlace you see threaded through the button hole when you buy a new strap...

    I always take them off because I never know what they're supposed to be for... and i've never EVER seen anyone play a guitar or bass with a bit of string dangling from the end of the strap...

    any ideas?
     
  2. I think it's intended for acoustic players.
     
  3. correct.
     
  4. It gets tied around the headstock/ neck joint. You'll occasionally see pictures of people with Hofners playing them that way.
