    I suspect it's the body of my Ray4 against the material inside the soft case. Help? It's actually pretty embarrassing, it squeaks up a storm.

    It might be the strap attachment/D ring. I've experienced that before.

    it must be the "Sidler" gig bag!
  7. I agree with those suggesting the strap's D Ring as the culprit. Maybe a tiny amount of oil would help.

    I'm pretty sure I've experienced it with metal hardware.
