Thalia Strap Locks Coming Soon!

I have been thinking about strap locks for years and began development on a new strap lock about three years ago.  What I am about to show you is patent pending.

The problem that I have with existing strap locks is that they usually require you to replace the button on your guitar (and risk stripping out the screw hole? yes, I've done it...) and of course none of the solutions on the market are very elegant or attractive.  

So here is what we have designed. We have created a strap lock that will work with over 30 different stock and aftermarket buttons from all of the major guitar brands. No need to get out your screwdriver!  

And best of all our elegant solution is as beautiful as it is functional and sports fine finishes and inlays just like other Thalia products.  We even made sure that it would work perfectly on an acoustic with a endpin jack!  

These strap locks are not available for sale yet! We are currently raising money via a crowdfunding campaign so that we can bring these new locks to market.  Please help us by investing at

The demand for our products radically surges during the Holiday Season and we simply cannot serve that demand surge under our normal build-to-order model.  So we actively trim the available options in the run up to the holidays so we can focus on building our most popular products. So if you have seen products on our site that say Sold Out until 2021 that is what is going on. 

Now that the Holiday Season is fully underway and we have passed the initial surge of Black Friday / Cyber Monday, we are turning many of these products back on for "preorder."  This way anyone who is willing to wait until January to get these products may pre-order them now and secure their place in line.

It was an exhausting week at the Thalia Studio but I feel like we accomplished so much. I have attached a short video tour inside of our retooled factory. It is frenetic environment as we race to get these out to those in need. The team is inspired by the stories that are coming in from the front lines and the opportunity to offer some help.
