Strap recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I've also got a racing strip one (white with black line), their comfortable because their quite thick, I think there really really well made and strong. You won't be disappointed. You get a hand made strap for a pretty good price.

Great! I am going to order atleast three. The shipping costs look pretty fair via UPS as well. Do you use strap locks or do they hold up okay without?

I don't use strap locks with my burns marvin guitar but my bassist does with her Fender p-bass. because their longer straps than usual, it really makes it easier to get on and off. Hope you like them as much as me.

I prefer leather and because I do leather work, can make what I want. One guy I have made mandolin and bazouki straps for has used them all over the US and UK and will be ordering a few more this weekend when I see him again.

You'll be surprised how long the straps BG, I'm 6'2 and always have trouble with guitar straps, just ease of getting them on and off at gigs, because it's a foot (or half a foot i can't remember) longer. I no longer bang me' head when i take um off halfway through a gig. :) I wish i ordered more, They came in 5 days to the uk, included a pretty retro flyer and a sticker.

The length is important as one is for my son (he wants the Dark Red 80's Mercedes Guitar Strap) as he is 14 and already 6' 1" and growing. I am getting the Vintage Black Cadillac Hard-Top Racer X Guitar Strap and I want to chose one more. Either a Dead Dtock Flowers or the Mustang Trunk Liner. Going to place the order next week.

One more question for you PESIMAX, I notice there is a pass through buckle and 3 rivets where the strap tab slot for strap pin at the bottom of the guitar body. Does the buckle or the rivets make contact with the guitar body? Do they cause any damage to the guitar?

Hey, good question, I've just had a look (I use them on an old Burns marvin and a 64' rickenbacker 364) and the rivets are quite high, they miss my guitar completely. When i wear it they don't make contact and a couple of months i've had the straps their hasn't been any damage caused by the strap.

 

cheers

A little late, getting in here...but I recently bought a 3 1/4" (wide) Levi (Black) Neoprene strap,

model #PM48NP3BLK. VERY comfortable, and takes the weight off my LP Custom and '76 LP Deluxe,

which are both Anvils, weight wise. Really enjoying the weight relief. I think it might be

considered a "bass" strap, but it works really well, so "who cares?!" ;>)
