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. To cut this curved pattern I need to start with 4” wide vintage leather.
Shoulder Piece Leather Very old leather, still supple and solid, with ample backbone to carry a load.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level High. Genuine vintage character that would prefer an older instrument but it certainly wouldn’t embarrass a newer one.
Shoulder Piece Notables I hand cut and shaped the shoulder piece from the best part of a larger piece of leather. The original 1/4" thickness has been skived to 1/8”. Comfortably curved, favoring the left shoulder of a right handed player and lined with new suede leather.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Top shelf, soft and supple well aged harness leather. Skived slightly to level out the thickness to a heavy 1/8”. Hand dressed and burnished edges and slicked smooth on the back side.
Strap Distressed Level High. No serious cuts, nicks, or battle scars – just a handsome western rein strap with exceptionally nice vintage character. Spot on match to the shoulder piece.
Strap Notables The rein strap is locked snug in the strap slots and the strap guide fits it tight. The strap will not slide thru the shoulder piece without intentional help.
