This brown leather guitar strap is made special with an inset of genuine natural cork that has an underlay of rainbow foil, so the gaps in the thin cork show flashes of reds, blues, yellows, greens, and purples. This inset is 1.5" wide and 12.75" long, starting about 7" from the front peg end and ends just about the wearer's shoulder.
The layers are glued and the cork fabric inset is sandwiched between the brown main strap and a soft cowhide. There are two rows of stitching in a coordinating brown to keep the cork secured.
The underside of the strap is a soft seuded split, rougher looking than the top finish, but is still very soft. And even with three layers of leather, the strap remains very supple, though the inset leather is firmer, but not stiff, as I've tried to depict with some of the photos.
The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers slightly at either end, and is about 42" long. I have softened the cut edges with a small bevel tool, so there is a gentle transition from the top surface to the edge.
Eleven adjustment slots are cut about every 1", and 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.
I cut the adjustment strap to about 22", with about 18" to the peg hole, so the overall length can be adjusted from about 48" to 58" between the peg holes. But since I cut these myself, I can easily modify the length or spacing to get the fit that works for you. Or you can add more peg holes in this back strap for finer adjustment as you wear it in.
The holes for the front peg is punched at 5/16", and rear tab is 3/8". Each end has a small slit that ends with a small hole for a "keyhole" effect to prevent tears and to make the strap easy to install & remove. The hole and can accommodate most pegs, but remains securely in place. If you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know.
This is also laser etched a few inches above the front peg hole and on the adjustment strap with my new brand logo, Acoustic Needle.
The 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 coordinating leather "laces" if you prefer to tie the strap to the neck of the guitar, rather than using a front peg. There is no extra charge for these when you order the strap, but please note in the order you want it included.
