    If you want to see if grommets will make any difference, try a piece of leather for a week. If it doesn't make a difference, neither will grommets. If it changes anything, grommets will change the same thing.
    Indulge responsibly!

    Shoelace works great. After neck was replaced and Weber refinished my Gallatin, the overtones was really noticeable. So the strip was a necessary addition.

    and you don't lose it when a string breaks, which is common with the grommet..

    I've seen some people use scotch tape, no lie. Leather is good and so is Velcro as used with these
