StewMac Guitar Strap Button

About This Item

Get a warm, rich look with our new dark tortoise strap button.

Details make the difference: these beautiful strap buttons match our bridge pins, and the knobs on Waverly guitar tuning machines.

They'll add a touch of class to your guitar. Each is precisely machined (none of the unsightly mold lines found on plastic buttons), and polished to accent the beauty of the material. A special countersunk brass bushing helps protect the button against overtightening — a unique StewMac feature.

Button diameter: 17/32" (13.28mm)
Button height: 7/16" (11.11mm)

Strap button felt washers protect your guitar's finish.

Our white, ivoroid, and dark tortoise strap buttons are made of Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully. Popular in the early 20th century, Galalith is seen today mainly in collectible vintage jewelry. It cannot be molded; each pin is precisely machined and has none of the unsightly mold lines common to plastic pins.

Installed in ROS-06

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I installed an ebony strap pin in my Recording King ROS-06, works quite good.
One complain I have is that this doesn't come with a washer, so you have to buy one separately.
Another is that the base of the pin, that goes against the washer, is kind of thin and brittle, so there is a risk in cracking specially if you're installing it in a concave surface like in the treble side of the heel. That happened to me and I don't think I screwed it too tightly. I ended up kind of fixing it. I think a warning and recommendation should be given along with this product. My recommendation would be that if you are installing this in a concave surface, be careful of the grain direction of the wood so it's more resistant to the higher pressure points, and of course don't screw it too tightly.

Only one, not a set

By

Only one, not a set. The button itself is beautiful and will work very well on the instruments that I make. However I thought for that price I was buying a set. But I was buying only one. So I was disappointed in the value for the price. But the button itself is beautiful and will work very well.

Classic strap button

Perfect addition to mahogany ukulele with tortoise binding. The shape is seamless and classical. Paired with mandolin style leather strap.
Don't forget the felt washers.

These are the best strap buttons that I have used. Quite elegant compared to other buttons. The selection of 10 buttons makes getting the right look easy. The quality is outstanding. Again, the best that I have used .

I've put these on several guitar rebuilds that I have done lately, and they always seem to garner remarks from my clients - snakewood on an all black satin Les Paul, Rosewood on an all ash Tele - these rock
