Rainbow Slither Leather Guitar Strap


Shipping to United States: Free

This all leather guitar strap is made with a rainbow foil print scale pattern cowhide layered over a smooth black cowhide strap. The pattern has solid foil scales mixed with those made of tiny dots, so the foil catches the light and eye, yet is not glistens, rather than reflects light back.

The pattern is based on the back or side scale of a python, but not a type to be found in any existing jungle...
This is the second of this, so the pattern varies very slightly based on the area of the hide it was cut from--the first 5 photos are the strap you'd receive with current order.

This exotic finish leather is glued & edge stitched to the solid black cowhide, leaving the adjustment slot area to show off the main strap cowhide. The hide is through-dyed, so it is consistent on the edges as on its soft suede split underside.

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 out (it may ease a bit as it breaks in with use). The edges are trimmed with a small radius bevel tool to soften the look. It also has my shop name and logo laser etched, and the leather is washed to remove the soot residue.

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.

If you have any questions, please convo me!

Wow wow WOW! I wanted to try to find a guitar strap for my anniversary that matched my boyfriends new guitar. I sent a picture of the guitar to Susan and she responded immediately with ideas and even went out of her way to go to a shop to search for new leathers for it! I ended up choosing this beautiful Rainbow Slither one, and it is gorgeous! You have to see it in person, the way the light reflects off of it is so truly special and breathtaking. My boyfriend had the biggest smile when I gave it to him, and everyone that sees it keeps asking where I got it from! Susan is so kind and sweet it melts your heart, and pair that with what is a genuinely gorgeous item - I wish I could give 10 stars! Couldn’t recommend anymore !
