  • Details
    This all leather guitar strap is made with a green iridescent foil print "fish scale" on thin black cowhide that is layered onto thick green cowhide. The strap is 2 1/2" at its widest, and adjusts from 48" to 58" long.

    The sparkle is created by iridescent green to red foil scales and dots printed onto a thin black cowhide suede. It shines, but is not mirror-like reflective. The green is predominant, but it does shift to orange-red-gold pending the angle (the photos with multiple angles and folds of the strap demonstrate how the colors & iridescence varies with the angle to the light).

    This foiled leather is glued & edge stitched with green thread, leaving the adjustment slot area to show off the main strap leather. On this one This green base leather is 5/6oz (2.1mm) thick, and is smooth top grain & oil tanned, and has a "pull-up" affect that becomes more apparent with use and age, and will show its life. It is thru dyed, and the edge and flesh side is lighter green and has a nice even suede-like finish. And it is very strong yet supple. Together the two layers are 8/9oz (3.4mm) thick.

    The strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide, and tapers to about a 1 1/2" radius for the front peg end, and down to 2 1/8" width on the slot end.

    The 1" wide adjustment strap is made with the same leather as the main strap so it can weave through the adjustment slots easily, but it is still firm, and will not stretch. The grain side edges are trimmed with a small radius bevel tool to soften the look. The hide is through-dyed, so it is consistent on the edges as on its soft suede split underside.

    The overall length of this strap as shown is adjustable from about 48" to 58". The main strap is about 42" long, and the 11 slots are spaced from about 29" to 40" from the front peg hole. The adjustment strap is 18" from slot to its rear peg hole when installed. (I refer to the front peg hole being on the main strap, and the rear is the adjustment slot).

    The 1" wide adjustment strap loops through the chosen slot and is woven through the other slots to provide the desired length and fixes to the back pin on the guitar. And I've laser etched my logo onto the exposed section above the peg hole.

    The holes for the pegs are punched at 5/16" in the front, and 3/8" in the back, and a small slit ends with a small hole at the top of the slit to prevent tears & the "keyhole" effect makes the strap easier to install & remove, and can accommodate most pegs. The firm leather and stitching around the front peg hole keeps strap to remain secured once it's fitted fully in place.

    This design means the strap is only leather, and there is no metal or plastic hardware that could annoy you while you're playing, or your knock into you instrument while it's being moved or stored.

    I can also provide leather "laces" if you prefer to tie the strap to the neck of the guitar, rather than using a front peg. And if you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know. There is no extra charge for enlarging the peg holes or for the ties when you order the strap, but please note in the order if you want any of those changes.
