After 30 plus years of pure humbucking, fast chugging, high gain turned up to 11... I'm finally discovering the joys of clean single coil tones of the strat. :)

I have recently bought an American Pro II, my 2nd Strat. I want to purchase the new Schaller strap S locks to install on the guitar, am I able to use the original button screws on the guitar or do I have to use the ones that come with the Schallers?

I don't really want to drill a bigger hole or make the hole smaller if I dont have to. I usually have a guitar tech install them but we are in lockdown at the moment.

Here are some pics of the gear :D

Welcome - I use Dunlop Lok Straps on all my guitars. Cheap as chips and fit over any size of button without having to change or drill anything. I have a pair in each guitar case. Some people use Grolsch beer bottle rubber washers instead - I find them a bit tight.

In return for this free Pommie advice please now stop beating us in the Ashes:whistling:

I ended up buying some rubber strap blockers and they are actually quite secure.

I had to try them on with the strap a few times to make it work. The bottom one would not stay on properly as the leather on the strap is kinda thick. But with a little persistence, Ive found a way to put them on so they wont come off unless I want them to.

Sienna Sunburst I think, If so I have one too :)

Welcome, never too many Aussies here

I have a set of Schaller strap S locks, I haven't fitted them yet,

Hi, yes its the Sienna Sunburst. I initially wanted Mystic Surf Green but it wasn't available. Maybe I'll get one in SSS next. :D

I bought it blind online cause of lockdown, Im glad that I like grain patterns on this one.
