I dont know if any of you have done this yet, but here it is...
so im at home, and I should be studying, but im taking a break (promotion test next week).
Im putting straplocks on my EB-3 and thinking where to move the strap buttons to eleviate the TERRIBLE neck dive.
then it occurs to me, add a counterweight.
so I happen to have some leg weights laying around, I took two of the weights from inside and duct taped them to my strap as so:
and viola! no more neck dive.... heres a pic I took of myself with the EB-3 hanging free and not slamming headstock first into the ground!
the way the strap hangs you cant even see the weights... I will probably come up with some sort of sleeve that will fit over it so its more aesthetically pleasing... havent really noticed or felt the effects of the extra weight (I like heavy basses though and the EB-3 is fairly light)
so if you want to use this idea, it works killer. unless you already thought of it then nevermind hahahahahahaha...
now I can play this bass even more!!!
