I use straps on everything except my vintage acoustic uke I would not modify. On the heavier solid body electrics, I use strap locks. The acoustic-electric jacks double as a strap button. The banjo ukes came with a strap that clips on the pot. I added a MISI pickup to my only other acoustic uke which gave me another jack/button. I like Vorson leather straps for my solid body electrics and Ernie Ball straps for my acoustic electrics. I stand for four hours when I play in the band so I need a strap. I have been thinking about trying an MBrace with a mic stand for when I need to switch quickly between keyboards and uke on the same song.
