    Sure, something like this.

    I've a partscaster that has a small degree of nick dive in the the guitar. My wife has these type of wrist weights (unbranded don;t know what they are) and using one of those at the body end of the strap corrects it completely. Just luck in terms of weight!

    The other thing that works pretty well for minor neck dive is a suede-backed strap that grips your shoulder. that works too, but pulls your clothes a bit so less good for the stage look if you're concerned about that. Levys does a really good one.

    Good question. Solid body has the TV Jones pickups but the Thinline has genuine FilterTrons. They sound different. FilterTrons have more treble bite and TV Jones Classics are warmer.

    Here's the only picture I had handy: 90's RI '69 Thinline. Broadcaster bridge pickup, added Bigsby via vibramate kit.

    I got this for my 16th birthday. It's been my only guitar for 8 years. IMG_5469.jpg
