Sometimes you find about a product at random as I did with this one while I was watching for content to update my other blog G.A.S. a GoGo. Every guitarist or bassist had the problem once! Which problem? The guitar neck dive, and most of the time the neck doesn’t dive because it is to heavy but the body weight is too light. OK I admit that this is more or less the same but looking for a problem backward sometimes favor a counter intuitive solution. Anyway, the weight difference is always translated by the neck diving which makes the playing position less comfortable.
The Heads Up Strap product is a strap, as the name suggest it, that is designed to fix this neck dive issue by lifting up the guitar neck! The solution is simple but very clever: the strap as a pocket next to its back end i.e. at the back of the guitar body. Then all you’ll have to do is to add meta weights to balance the guitar, and the stop the neck from diving. Heads up!
This is a clever, and simple solution as I like. The kind of product that reminds us that despite the high tech era we live in, sometimes the best solutions are totally mechanical! Now I don’t if it is as efficient as it is said but to be honest I can’t think of a reason why it shouldn’t work well.
If you want to know more, just check headsupstrap.com. Notice that the heads up strap price costs as much as a good guitar strap ($49,99) , and the offer a 60 days trial in case the strap doesn’t suit you!
