    For all of you who want to sling their guitar lower than regular guitarstraps….just find an old car, cut out the seat belt, attach some strap locks (you can cut off the old leather tips of your old strap as well as the little buckle thing) and you have urself a strap that can go extra long

      Another thought on the “seat belt” thing – it’d be an absolute bummer if inertia reel. Can’t-lower-it-despite-several-pulls, then suddenly it snaps up and whacks you on the chin… 🙂

      As for the “quick release” buckle, my Jim Reed bass came with a (gaudily logoed) strap that has a prongy “suitcase style” clasp. Brilliant – much preferable to lifting the whole thing over the head – ought to catch on, really.

      [quote=”1bassleft”]Where d’you find a 2nd hand airplane? You never booked a last-minute flight with Avro? I actually got on a 727 (yes, a 727) crate that I hadn’t seen sans-mothballs since 1972. Checking the lifejacket, it had the “Pan-Am” logo on it. My black humour had even the cabin crew blanching. The primitive air-con belched dry ice out, leading to “what’s that?” Qs from Bass-jr. When I replied that “It’s the clouds passing through, a lot of the rivets are working loose by now” some nervous type with a SOH bypass told me to shut up. :lol:[/quote]

      I know someone that flew with Garna airlines, looks down at his seat and only 3 out of 4 bolts holding the seat down, the seat in front only had 2!! and it wobbled when the woman got up to go to the loo ! 😆

      Hey bulsara,

      If you’re concentating on you guitar playing that should be more like a pillow push than punting on the Cam. SB

      and all the guys from the undertones too, i know what would be real cool, if you got an airline seatbelt, have the buckle showing and use it as a release device, easily adjustable too, but where the hell do you find a 2nd hand airplane??

      An excellent piece of advice for someone who’s knuckles drag along the ground…!!!!
