This unique guitar strap is made with a special finish pigskin that has a silver foil veins over white applied in a cracked fashion to show the orange seude base. It's reflective, but the vein and cracked effect keeps it more as a glisten, rather than being being mirror-like. This pigskin is applied from the front top to just about 1" above the first slot of a top grain rust colored cowhide.
This special hide is glued and edge stitched with coordinating thread onto the base cowhide that is very supple and strong, and is about 6oz thick (3/32"). I stitch around the front peg hole to ensure if any layer separation starts due to the stress of fitting on & off the peg, it cannot extend past the stitched area.
I have taken pictures with different angles and bends of the strap to show how the appearance can vary.
This strap has the logo for my guitar strap specific brand, Acoustic Needle, laser etched on the adjustment strap.
The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers slightly at either end, and is about 42" long. I cut the adjustment strap to about 22", so once it's looped into place, the overall length can be adjusted from about 48" to 60" at 1 inch intervals between the peg holes.
I have softened the cut edges with a small bevel tool, so there is a gentle transition from the top surface to the edge.
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 and I'll try to accommodate if I can't make another strap like this to order.
(Please note that each strap may vary slightly as this one pictured due to the unique finish of the hide--no two can be exactly alike).
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 black 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.
