Gray Giant Toad Exotic on Black Leather Guitar Strap


Ask a question

This listing is for a unique guitar strap made with exotic giant toad leather that has been dyed so that the low areas are grey, and the bumps, or high spots, are black, and this is inset in a black cowhide.

The inset is just under 7" long and 3/4" at its widest, and it tapers slightly toward the bottom, which is about 7" to the peg hole. The toad is formed over a piece of the same thickness leather as the main strap, so it has some dimension. The strap is edge stitched around the inset, and the area is backed with a firm patent calfskin to hold the inset's height in place.

The base strap is a smooth, matte finish cowhide, and It is very tough, yet supple, and will hold acoustic, electric, and even bass guitars well.

The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers slightly at either end, and is about 42" long. I have softened the cut edges with a small beveler, so there is a gentle transition from the top surface to the edge.

Eleven adjustment slots are cut about every 1", and 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.

I cut the adjustment strap to about 22", with about 18" to the peg hole, so the overall length can be adjusted from about 48" to 58" between the peg holes. But since I cut these myself, I can easily modify the length or spacing to get the fit that works for you. Or you can add more peg holes in this back strap for finer adjustment as you wear it in.

The holes for the front peg is punched at 5/16", and rear tab is 3/8". Each end has a small slit that ends with a small hole for a "keyhole" effect to prevent tears and to make the strap easy to install & remove. The hole and can accommodate most pegs, but remains securely in place. If you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know.

The 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 coordinating leather "laces" if you prefer to tie the strap to the neck of the guitar, rather than using a front peg. There is no extra charge for these when you order the strap, but please note in the order you want it included.
