that idea above is allot cheaper then buying a locking strap. or at least a good remedy until you can save money to get a good locking one..

so with that in mind feel free to share any little tips and or tricks you have to help all of us save a few bits of $$$... any kind of tips and tricks weather it be for guitars, amps, pedals, anything to help out....

(not tips in tricks on how to play guitar, only tips and tricks of things you do to save money buy making your own and ways to fix things allot less)

Who needs production fret board cleaner when you've got a wire brush and lemon oil?
