This is simply an incredibly well designed product. Very simple, very effective and pretty durable. It's made out of plastic but it's tough and unless you're smashing at it with a hammer for some inscrutable reason, it's not going to break on you. Just make sure you get a strap that has a strong end to it, as if it has a weak leather end, the cord will eventually wear it out and make it break. This is an excellent product and essential for any owner of an acoustic with only one strap button. I was recently at a Flogging Molly concert and I was at the very front of the crowd. When Dave King, the frontman and acoustic player, came out, I saw that he was using one of these!

Thought this would be suoer handy for my guitar. Have custom strap (non adjustable, measured and made for ME.) The idea of this easy quick-realease is great, but it made my strap MUCH too long. It would be much more useful if in a shorter length or was adjustable. Would cost more to send back than the price of item. I gave it to a friend who can use it with his banjo.

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Quick-Release Guitar Strap System:

Its funny how this little guy is the best thing I ever bought from MF. My acoustic bass is pretty big and im pretty short, now that i can throw this around the headstock and adjust the strap to a good length i can get a very comfortable playing position. dont think twice, buy one.... buy two while your at it

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Quick-Release Guitar Strap System:

    It did not occur to me how handy and useful these could be until I bought the first one and actually tried it. I've got five acoustic guitars: 2 Taylors (6 & 12), D-18 Martin, and a Collings. Although I bought two Taylor straps I didn't realize that with these things I probably only needed one. What's really nifty is they are not tied on but looped so they are so tight in and under back of the nut you never run into them with your left hand.

          I use on all my acoustic guitars and mandolins. very handy. this version is not compatible with the older dadario style. in other words, if you have a dadario version on your guitar it won't match a planet waves on your strap. In case you like to use same strap on different guitars for example.

              Acoustic Guitar Must Have

              Ask me a question

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Quick-Release Guitar Strap System:

              Acoustic guitars have two problems when it comes to straps. If both strap buttons are on the guitar body the strap makes a small space between the strap end connections which which can be uncomfortable or awkward for the player to quickly put on and take off their guitar. In addition some acoustics only have one strap button at the bottom of the body which creates the often seen ugly rope and knot thing tied to the headstock. This cheap and simple device cures both possible issues. The quick release has two pieces. Take the part without the Planet Waves logo and run the cord behind the low E string and out under the high E. Pull the plastic connector through the loop behind your headstock. Next take the half with the Planet Waves logo and run the cord throuhg your guitar strap hole then pull the connectoer through the loop. Plug the two connectors together and adjust your strap for length. Done. You know have a setup that looks good, is more comfortable and speeds up instrument change. Grap an Ernie Ball poly strap from MF to go with this and hit the stage.

                      I thought it might be a weak connection but it's strong. I had to take up the other end of the strap but I finally got it the right length. There's more room for my hand at the nut. I can leave the strap off when I don't need it.

                                Bought this for my acoustic so i wouldn't have to have multiple straps. Just use one and be done. This to me is of good quality and the release buttons work as they should. Although i find that i have to use a bit to much strength to push the tabs in. But this could be because they are new and will loosen up with use. Even if they don't, I can live with that. They hold my acoustic securely. So i am not worried about any accidental falls. A must have for people who play live or just like to jam with friend.

                                        I love this strap system. I don't have to drill a hole on my guitars to use a strap. The quality of this strap is great. I got the fist one in 2008 and It works just perfect.

                                        Terrific. I have one on every guitar.

                                            This is a great little product. I have one on every guitar I own. Strong and durable. If you attach your guitar strap at the neck, then this is an easy way to go. It allows you to remove/re-attach the strap quickly and easily. A real bargain as well.

                                              I had already ordered one for my dobro. I got this one for my mandolin. Works great for any instrument that does not have a strap button or lock installed or anyone that prefers the strap attached at headstock.

                                                  release latches are hard to use-they are smalll and tight
