Yes, the Flying V is basically designed to be played standing up! I use Dunlop Strap Locks on all of my guitars, and the straps do stay locked on, regardless of whatever antics I get involved in. Have fun with your new baby!

Thanks well I play in classical position sitting down and seems to work ok. Love the G-Force auto tune function on my V. Very cool to autotune such a piece of cake. Played power chords and worked on mastering the fretboard. The good thing is that I can switch pretty easy from the V to my ESP and play both. I will see about getting my Loxx strap on it so I can focus on standing up play with no issues. Do I use the screwdriver to remove the default strap locks on the V and replace with my Loxx kit? That seems like the way to go.

I've got Schaller strap locks on all my electric guitars. Strap buttons are usually screwed in with Philips head screws. The only thing that I noticed with some strap buttons is that sometimes they have used larger screws than your strap locks. If this is the case, you may want to fill the screw holes with some toothpicks and white carpenter glue and let dry before you install them.

Put Loxx on my Gibson Flying V and that works great so easy to take off and put on and very secure. I want to master playing it because Metallica sounds awesome on the V!
