I recently acquired a nice A-style mandolin, and I don't want to install a strap button on the neck heel. #Without the strap button, I have seen two different strap options: #the woven type that ties around the peghead, and the type that has a cord tied around the body under the fingerboard extension.
A couple questions:
1. #I haven't had any luck finding the woven, tie-around-the-peghead type. #I like the old-timey look of these. #Does anyone know where I can get one?
2. #If I go with the tie-under-the-fingerboard type, what type of material should I use for the tie?
Thanks in advance for your help.
