So I recently purchased a new Yamaha AC3R acoustic-electric guitar.

Great guitar, except for the strap peg. The strap on the guitar doesn't work with this strap: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/50BAL02--daddario-auto-lock-padded-guitar-strap-diamonds

So my question is:

1) Do you recommend a locking strap for my $1000 guitar. The strap doesn't look like it is about to fall off, but I know that some people like to buy a locking strap.

2) If so, what would you recommend? Would something like this work?

If anyone has an AC3R or some other Yamaha A-series guitar, that would be great!

your loops would work but why not change your pegs to D'Addario

I use a Guatmalin woven cotton belt as a strap. It is very wide but very thin and comfortable. It has good friction so your guitar stays put better. It is also not sweaty like a plastic or heavy leather strap. I permanently attached it to my guitar and I never take it off. I have one for my electric and one for each of my accoustics. One is a Yamaha

As a result I never take the straps off. They are attached so they remain with the guitar when I put it in its case. NO WORRIES ABOUT THING GETTING AWAY FROM YOU. I love it. If you are currious about doing so your self I will glad to explain how I did it.
