Sonoma, CA (April 1, 2019) -- Music Nomad introduces Acousti-Lok, a patent pending product line of strap lock adapters that adds the safety & flexibility of using strap locks to your acoustic guitar without permanently modifying it. Acousti-Lok's strong brass construction gives you the security you have been looking for. With 3 different Acousti-Lok designs to choose from for standard and metric output jacks, make sure you find the one that is compatible with your acoustic guitar output jack.
