I have a (non-Alembic) Tiger tribute and I'm looking for the "just exactly right" strap buttons. Old Gibson's shape looks close, but not big enough. One theory is that Doug used Alembic-made buttons? Anyone know? Are they available?

FWIW, my early Alembics do seem to have fairly large strap buttons.

If you ask me, the "just exactly right" strap buttons for anything are Schaller strap locks; I'll pass on the historical accuracy of an instrument hitting the floor with one end attached, thanks!

We never made strap buttons, but I do like those old big ones too. As far as I know there hasn't a source for them for decades.

I found some that are very close. On ebay, from the UK, around $5! I had to drill out the hole to like 11/64" in order to use a beefy enough screw. They're about twice the size of the usual "Gibson" style buttons usually found.

Not historically correct, but larger:
