Got my JetGlo 360/12c63 last week. Love the guitar in every respect but I wasn't expecting the strap buttons to also be vintage as well, i.e., not the ones that are compatible with the Schaller strap-lock system that were on my 330/6 and 330/12. The screws for the Schaller strap-lock buttons are two small to fit in the holes drilled out for the vintage strap buttons. So, of those who have a 360/12c63, what are you using for strap-locks? I don't want to do surgery on the guitar to make the Schallers work if I don't have to (i.e., filling the stock holes) but I don't want to go without strap-locks on this guitar. Thanks.

Go to the Boutique here at the Ric website and look for SKU# 05904

This is made for the Schaller straplock system and fits the guitar perfectly.

Howdy,

I use these on both my vintage instruments as well as the 660/12 which comes with vintage strap buttons. Just be sure to save the originals just in case....
The last thing that I want to happen is to have my Rickenbacker interface with the ground!!

Thanks for the responses -- will the gauge of 05904 part match the gauge of the vintage strap button? The width of that vintage strap button screw is huge compared to the screw that comes with the Schaller strap-lock sets. Is the 05904 part different than the Schaller part?

The RIC part replaces the Schaller button, and is a direct replacement for the vintage strap button on the C63. The only part of the original Schaller system that you'll use is the clip that installs on your strap.

Yes, different part altogether. Ours has the bolt threading attached and simply threads in perfectly to replace the vintage buttons. Take them back out if you want to return to stock.
