Iridescent Leather Guitar Strap

Iridescent Leather Guitar Strap


Ask a question

This all leather guitar strap is made with an iridescent foil print dot pattern lambskin layered over a smooth dark emerald green cowhide strap. The foil dots are silver on black lambskin, but come alive with full rainbow range of colors as its moved. I've tried many photo angle to capture this, but the camera can't capture its full allure. Think of an Anna's hummingbird...

I've paired with with the emerald green to provide the best accent to the iridescence, which includes multiple shades of reds, blues, purples & greens for any given dot.

This exotic finish lambskin is glued & edge stitched to the emerald green cowhide with dark green thread, leaving the adjustment slot area to show off the main strap color. The front peg hole area is also accented with stitching, to help add additional strength around the peg hole & prevent any layer separation during install/removal of the strap from your instrument.

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 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 edges are trimmed with a small radius bevel tool to soften the look. The hide is through-dyed, so it is consistent dark brown 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.
