    Sorry if this is on the wrong thread, it may be on accessories.

    Well the thing is that I just bought this beast, and instantly tried to install my loved and trusty dunlop dual strap locks, but the screw seem to be too big ( that's what she said ) or the hole on the guitar is not deep enough. And I couldn't install them. :(

    I installed stupid dimarzio clip lock, but I don't like it because I feel that the plastic clip on the strap is scratching my baby.

    I want Dunlop, si I can use whatever strap I want, something that doesn't scratch the guitar.

    Do I have to screw the Dunlop screw with full force until fits?
    Or what am I supposed to do?

    Drill the hole deeper (but not too deep) with a drill bit that's a little smaller than the screw for the strap locks. Then install them. Easy as pie.
