I've always noticed Brad Paisley's alternate strap button placement. It seems to be on the neckplate or somewhere in that area. Today, I noticed that Brent Mason seems to use something similar. Can anyone explain the reasoning behind that? I have two telecasters, a MIM and a 2003 Highway One. When I try something new, I test it out on the MIM. If I like it, the beloved H1 gets the treatment. I'm planning on trying this. I mostly want to know where the alternate placement should be. Any suggestions?
