Interesting. What's the north side of a guitar?

Facing up, if the standard strap button placement is on the lower/south side of the heel.

Oh. Okay, thanks. There's lots of places folks install strap buttons. Which one is/are wrong?



Then there's always this. It wouldn't work for me but must have for someone.

ThIs would’ve been opposite 5 or between 3 and 4 at a 45 degree angle. Think of 5 on a left handed guitar and apply to a right handed instrument. There’s simply no way for the button to retain the strap. I do prefer to live and let live (one might even say to abide), but the error and correction were equally deserving of reproof.

Is this the Guitar Center on Cobb Parkway near Windy Hill? If so I was just there today and did not recall seeing a Huss and Dalton and its not listed on the website either. Was it in the small used section in the very back?

It was, and it does appear to be gone. It was hanging at the end of the top row to the left with the upper end Martins and Taylors.

Maybe someone here confirmed the case and went for it? I'd have given it another go tomorrow, as I've been out of town.

And a Collings dreadnought case just popped up in the Maple Street used section. Either someone here or someone who ought to be here pulled the trigger. Well done.
