This all leather guitar strap is decorated with blue celluloid guitar picks in a serpentine pattern from a few inches above the front peg hole to the first slot, which would be over the player's shoulder.
The picks were first dotted with glue to keep them in position on the 5-6 oz cowhide leather, and then stitched with cream colored thread in three rows to fully secure the picks and accent the serpentine and curls at either end.
I positioned the picks so that the strap is still flexible, as shown in photos with it draped over my guitar's body (which is NFS) and even tight roll of the strap, with a standard sized business card which I've laser cut and etched for my "acoustic needle" line). But the picks are not removable or usable in this design.
If you are interested in other leather colors or pick colors, or size, please convo me for custom order!
This strap also features my new logo specific to music accessories, "acoustic needle", and the logo is laser etched to the front just above the peg hole, and on the smaller adjustment strap.
This is my standard strap width, at 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 47" to 58". The main strap is about 42" long, and has 12 slots spaced from about 28" 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.
