Guitar/Banjo #1070

Definitely a heavy duty strap that would prefer any of the electrics or larger acoustic guitars or heavy Mastertone style banjos. With the pronounced curve of the shoulder piece, this one would work best attached to a heel button on an acoustic guitar or the bracket bolts of a banjo. It’s likely either you or your instrument will wear out before this strap will.

Features:

Status Available
Shoulder Piece Size 12" long by 2 1/2" wide where it will cross your shoulder and tapering slightly toward the front and 1 1/2" on the tail.
Shoulder Piece Leather Top shelf harness leather, well used and broken in with plenty of backbone to carry a load.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium. Color shading with a genuine vintage character but overall the leather is still in excellent shape. No checking, scrapes, cuts or battle scars present.
Shoulder Piece Notables I hand cut and shaped the shoulder piece from an old belly girth. The original 1/4" thickness has been skived down to a solid 1/8”. Comfortably curved, favoring the left shoulder of a right handed player. Lined with new suede leather on the bottom.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 3/4"
Strap Leather Top shelf, soft and supple harness leather. Skived slightly to level out the thickness to 3/16”. Original hand dressed and burnished top edges. I also dressed and burnished the new bottom edges and slicked the bottom smooth.
Strap Distressed Level Medium. No checking or battle scars – just a handsome western rein strap with a nice vintage character mirroring the shoulder piece.
Strap Notables The rein strap fits perfectly snug in the custom shaped strap slots and the strap guide fits it tight. The shoulder piece will stay anchored in place unless intentionally moved.
