Guitar/Banjo #1183

An eye catching old relic suitable for the vintage acoustics, old Mastertones, or distressed electrics. Since the shoulder piece does not slide on the strap to adjust position, I’ll need to get an extra measurement from you to properly set it up. No problem.

Shoulder Piece Size 12 1/2” long by 2” wide.
Shoulder Piece Leather Thick and butter soft harness leather. Well aged and rock solid.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes. It took an evening and couple of Guinness Stouts to properly lay out the stitching pattern so everything looked balanced.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium/high. Definitely vintage with high mileage and a character that reflects a previous life on the range. Color shaded and a few dings.
Shoulder Piece Notables This was formerly an adjustable saddle strap and the original buckle holes for a two-prong buckle are quite visible. I punched the holes thru the suede leather lining on the bottom in case you needed to check the color of your shirt and to give a little ventilation for the summer gigs. Close-up photos sent on request.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Excellent quality old leather. Thick, soft and strong with dressed and burnished original top edges.
Strap Distressed Level Medium/high. An obvious veteran lacking any visual issues.
Strap Notables I skived the thickness to 1/8”, dressed and burnished the fresh cut edges, and slicked the bottom smooth. Original “Cowperson Tack” maker mark embossed into the strap will be visible to the rear of the shoulder piece when completed.
