Guitar/Banjo #1144

This is a larger shoulder piece than #1137 and I’d not recommend it for anything smaller than a dreadnaught, tele, strat, or a heavy banjo.

The strap slots fit the rein strap snug enough to keep things from sliding around while in use. Lined on the bottom with new suede leather.

Strap Notables The rein strap is excellent quality and was stamped “Schutz Bros.” - making quality western tack since 1946. I cut off the maker mark, thinned the leather, and used it as the strap guide on the shoulder piece. Close-up photo sent on request. Includes a custom fit for length and attachment points to the buyers specifications.
