neck dive

Post by john » Fri Jul 18, 2008 1:21 am

was looking at different effects on you tube and noticed the attachment on the guys guitar (neck strap holder).
could be a good dive solver even if it does look a bit stupid :D

it could work, but it'd have to be strong, cause that one looks like it could very well snap if too much pressure was put on it.

Wouldn't it be hard to see what you're playing without your head? :lol: But seriously, use a wide leather strap with the rough bottom side and wear a rougher fabric shirt. Also, if your bass has a bridge cover, ala earlier Fender Ps and Js, put some stick-on weights on the bottom of the cover for counter balance. 8)

Neck dive is just gravity's way of telling you that your bass doesn't weigh enough....
