          Comments about Planet Waves Quick-Release Guitar Strap System:

          I am hooked on these for acoustic guitars. If you're playing somewhere, its a snap to attach your strap at the headstock and IT WON'T COME OFF ACCIDENTIALLY! For the other end of the strap, I use something called a Stringkeeper which also attaches easily and won't come off. With both of these, setup is quick and you don't have to worry about a dropped guitar.

              Acoustic Guitar Must Have

                    Comments about 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.

                      Comments about Planet Waves Quick-Release Guitar Strap System:

                      so many articles about how to deal with neck heavy instruments...move the strap button, use a high friction strap. why not just get one of these. the only downside is that the face of the instrument will be less angled toward you, more toward the audience but still better than neck heavy effects.

                            This is a must have for anyone who hates tying straps to the headstock. It's extremely easy to use and I cannot imagine playing without it.

                            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

                            I have had one of these on my classical guitar for about two years. It is simple and is very effective. When it breaks, I will buy another one! Tonight I am ordering another one for my 12 year olds classical. I hope this helps
