What type of strap locks do you use? 

I had some strap holders which fit my standard Schaller Strap Locks made by a friend using the original RIC holder as a template and using the same thread size so that the home made ones simply screw into the body without modification to the guitar.  I've see Schaller ones advertised on the Rics R Us web site in the UK, which appear to be designed specifically for most standard RIC guitars and basses.

I've always used my 330 and 360 as lead guitars and incorporated a Cry Baby Wah pedal into the sound too.  My main influence for this was Paul Weller in his Jam days.

I agree that the combination of hollow bodied guitars and wah is excellent for creation of looped feedback and sustained distortion of notes etc, I used this method on a Majikfish song called "Toy Shop" which was a heavy song with the beginning set to chaotic feedback from this combination.  Normally for the heavier songs I would use my Les Paul, but the 330 or 360 gave me the perfect sound when used this way.

When playing through the amp the buzz is completely masked and live and studio work isn't affected too badly.  It's when the amp is idle you hear it most.

I have a 1979 AC30 Top Boost Reverb amp which has always been very buzzy since Ibought it used in 1990.  I have had it serviced and changed the valves over the years, but it remains noisey.  I have used it for both live work and recording without too much problem, but does anyone else have similar problems or have any ideas on how I might remedy it? ???

With my various Rics I use a Cry Baby Wah Wah and a Yamaha FX500 multi FX unit, along with the foot controller for my Vox AC30TB Reverb (using the tremolo sound occasionally)! ;D
