Glam Gator 2 Leather Guitar Strap


Ask a question

This all leather guitar strap is made with a unique silvery foil cowhide that is laser etched to create a scale pattern so that the brown leather the foil is applied to shows between the scales.

This is applied over a brown cowhide, suitable for guitar straps on its own, and is glued & edge stitched with coordinating thread, leaving the adjustment slot area to show off the main strap cowhide.

This is version #2, as the original in photos has sold, as was slightly narrower than my standard straps. Also please note that due to the nature of the foil finish, each strap will be unique as it's cut from the hide, and may not exactly match the one pictured. And the brown leather used may vary slightly in shade due to availability of the base strap leather.

The main strap is 2.5", tapering down to about 2" at the front peg hole, and less of a taper to about 2.25" 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 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.

I have also laser etched my logo on this smaller strap, and it's stamped on the inside of the main strap.

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 this smaller piece.

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.
