    I use a larkes head knot/loop through the leather tab and a Becket bend/sheet bend to tie it off.

    I'm probably overly fussy, but I prefer to use a strap button on the base of the neck. Having something tied near the headstock seems like a good way to put wear marks on the neck.

    Alibaba has 2.5" leather guitar straps for $2.42, with free shipping. Man, they sure have some cheap stuff! I think a strap from Sarah's will be my next one. I'll have her autograph it the next time I see her at an event.

    I totally hear ya about being fussy, Jerryc! One of the great things about Sarah is the included strap is such a soft suede. Velvety soft, buttery soft, sofffffffffft.

    I'm not worried about it marking the neck. I'd be more worried about botching the drill job, LOL!

    Thanks. I'd rather have mine tied at headstock and not neck. Thanks for showing the other option.

    Sarah will be at the Allegheny Ukulele Soiree in two weeks, so I'll buy a strap and see if I can get her to autograph it. My problem is that there are too many choices.

    As for attachment points. I like a button on the heal, but if the neck is too heavy I'll attach the strap by tying it above the nut.
    I've also bought one of these for my baritone, it works great.-

    And one of these for my concert Fluke.-

    This one is slim, light, there are no tying/knots, and no metal to scratch your instrument with its leather button.
