Guitar/Banjo #1076

Genuine vintage leather transformed into the strap style popular in the 60’s, but I doubt there were any as nice as this back then. Unlike the originals, this one lacks the deadly hardware, cheap leather, and sloppy fitting cookie cutter strap slots.

Features:

Status SOLD
Shoulder Piece Size 12" long by 2 1/2" wide with hand shaped rounded ends.
Shoulder Piece Leather Nice quality harness leather with an unmistakable vintage vibe. Supple leather skived just thin enough to be floppy but still has the backbone to handle the goods. Fully dressed and burnished edges.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes. The stitching goes around the full perimeter of the shoulder piece.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium/high. Some color shading, some very shallow surface checking and a couple small battle scars from years gone by.
Shoulder Piece Notables The carefully cut and shaped double strap slots fit the rein strap perfectly. Once adjusted for position the shoulder piece will not slide on the strap. The bottom is lined wall to wall with new suede leather, except for two small areas where the rein strap is accessible under the double strap slots.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Well used with an aged character matching the shoulder piece. Soft and supple.
Strap Distressed Level Medium-high with abundant surface. Dressed and burnished edges and slicked smooth on the bottom. Skived down to 1/8” in thickness to make a smooth transition thru the strap slots but still strong enough to stop horse or hold up an old Les Paul.
Strap Notables Attachments for any instrument easily accommodated and included.
