I should have also mentioned in this video that those A-style players who want to attach the "looped" end to the neck heel of their mandolin would use the exact same method as shown here. The difference being that the loop would pass under the fretboard extention, or Florida as it is often referred to, and then follow the instructions as shown.

I want to give credit to my beautiful '81 Gibson Fern for helping me out with this video!

This is going to be a gift. I have a couple of questions.
Suppose I wanted to get a strap without a braided cord. Just a hole at each end like the tail pin end. ???

Could I also use the loop for around the finger board near there the neck connects to the body of the instrument on an A style?
