Tie tack. Keeps it from flopping around. A tie chain will work too, but maybe not as well.
I don't wear a belt or subequent buckle, but rivet rash could be a problem from a pair of Levi 501's. I've always used a guitar polish cloth tucked in along the waist line to prevent any rash issues.
Just wear a towel, loin cloth style. Tuck it in to the front of your pants. You'd be happnin'! You could even use it to open beers.
Ted Nugent used to, till he got old and fat.
No buckle rash on the Byrdland...
Funny, even with my guitar strap let completely out my guitar won't hang low enough to touch my belt. Guess it comes with having big shoulders?
If you don't have buckle rash, you're not playing your guitar. Look at it as a sign that you're actually using the damn thing rather than taking pretty pictures to show off how fancy you are
you remind me of my keg of beer
lol grind the sh!t out of the back of the guitar,, mine looks so cool
at fist when had a few buckle scratches i was crying to myself why did i let myself do this to my baby,
its all about character and relic for me, no one (or atleast very few) play guitars like mine lol
Call me old fashioned, but I miss records ...
I remember the day I got that record. I can even remember opening it up for the first time.
Good memories ...
btw., edit, I'm pointing specifically to Speak Of The Devil
I'm with you. I still play the vinyl pretty often. Nothing quite like it.
Speak of the Devil, I remember lying on my bed listening to it over and over when I got it. The grooves on The Wizard and Symptom of the Universe are a little more worn than the rest I think.
Where this, then you will never have to worry about it again once the finish is completely gone.
Records are so much better than CDs. Lucky my parants got a top notch record player before they got discontinued... i brought SSoSS record by Iron Maiden of a mate of mine and it sounds so sweet!
And how on earth did you get the paint to come off on the neck? How old is it and is it a Custom?
+1000. I still have my Onkyo turn table form the 80's. It's built like a tank!
Just time I guess. It still had the paint on the neck when I got it. It's just gradually worn off over the years. It's a 1974 Custom, 20th anniversary that I have had since I was 12 years or 13 old, so about 1982. It was my first "real" guitar. Here is a pick of the front.
That would do it Luke. It's like a giant die grinder!
Is the trimming white or gold? i cant really tell, the pickups look silver for some reason so it might be just the light... also im colourblind so it doesnt help lol
It's not your eyes IMN, the gold on the hardware has worn to an almost silver look. Especially on the rhythm pick up and tail piece, and it's not the best picture either.
ahh fair play! the little middle front bit of the bridge (next to the pickup) has started going silver on the left because i rest my hand on it a lot lol Its only just over a year old
Cool! See, you are well on your way! Just keep playing it. Treat it with care and take good care of it, keep it clean and well maintained, but dont be too concerned with "beauty marks" like buckle rash. There is nothing like having an instrument that is worn in by your own playing over time. Buckle rash or other wise. They become extensions of your playing, personalized by you. It's like a long term relationship in a way. I have been through a lot in my life. Lost a lot of equipment along the way. But my LP is still with me. It's like my left arm.
See this is why when your young you have to buy a les paul thats new... so it grows old with you ill not ever get rid of it... i play it daily and take care of it all the time... i always polish it at most every 3 days and i clean the strings and fretboard with fast fret daily... though i might get some better stuff because my strings are black already and the sets only 2 weeks old
