Hi guys, has anyone done this? I was wondering about the thickness of any wood sub-structure.
Cheers.

I know someone who had a luthier do it with no problem.

Easiest strap solution is the one Del Rey uses.
Tie a shoelace or similar in a loop around the biscuit cover plate, I think it's called that, then use that to use a neck strap to attach to the lace.
You will need to adjust the size of the loop to suit,

Thank you for the replies guys. I am leaning towards the shoelace method. I guess the button has a more aesthetic appeal.

1. It's cheap.
2. It's simple.
3. It works.

Just to clarify, what I mean by the biscuit cover plate, is the bridge of metal that goes over the strings above the bridge.
