Copper and Black Leather Guitar Strap


Ask a question

This supple leather guitar strap is made with a unique copper finished sheepskin applied to a supple smooth grain black cow hide.

The sheepskin retains its top grain for a wrinkled texture, and appears washed with light copper that has a metallic sheen, and is more matte than shiny finish. This is applied to the black cowhide, glued & edge stitched, leaving the adjustment slot area to show off the fine glazed cowhide.

The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers to about a 1 1/2" radius for the front peg end, and a more gentle taper on the other end with the slots. The lambskin is glued and edge stitched to the firm 1/8" thick leather, with the last 15" or so of the black leather is exposed on the slot end for to contrast the lambskin. The 1" wide adjustment strap is made with the same black leather 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 appears black on its cut edges.

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.

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. And I can make longer or shorter version as suits your fit and playing style.
