Subject: RE: Tech: Mandolin-Oval vs. F-hole?
Usually the headstock, like everybody used to do with guitars. But you can screw a button into the neck heel if you want.

Mandolins are so small and light, you only need a thin strap. I used to use a leather workboot lace, until an old narrow leather belt came my way. I cut it, punched a couple of holes, attached a strap button to the heel and Robert is your avuncular relation.
