I have a good idea what a lot of you will want to do to me for even suggesting this but why don't mandolin players put strap buttons on both ends of the body of the instrument like guitar players do?
I have done that on the Rogue mandolin (don't laugh) that I bought to try and now that I'm looking to buy a better instrument I'm thinking I'd like to do the same on it.
Incidentally, I followed the set-up information provided in Robert G. Meldrum's book and it worked out great. A local instrument builder was impressed with its sound and playability for the price.
