    Default Strap for Irish Bouzouki to fit over K&K Jack

    Hi, I have an Irish bouzouki that has a K&K installed in it, and I need to get a strap that fits over the K&K jack on the bottom. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a strap whose precut holes are made to fit a K&K or similar 1/4" jack. Ideally a leather or suede strap, but I'm getting desperate (it's been almost a year now). Thank you!

    Here's an example of a strap I like: https://franklinstrap.com/product/se...-guitar-strap/

    You can enlarge a hole with a sharp knife on any leather strap.

    I have Sully straps for both my tenor banjo and acoustic guitar - Sully does an option where the strap holes are larger to accommodate endpin jacks. Lovely leather straps that will last a lifetime:

    I use Franklin straps on all my guitars and mandolins and they fit just fine on my K&K-equipped Eastman MDO305.

    These D'addario clinch fit attachments work great- I have three of them;
    one on my Irish Bouzouki (which has K&K pickup & jack), one on a Martin 000-35, and the third on my Taylor 12 string.
    The latter utilizes D'addario's Taylor-specific version to accommodate Taylor's conical endpin jacks.
    These units don't come loose once attached, and don't require any modification to your strap.
