Guitar/Banjo #1196

Nice quality vintage tooling leather and well broken in – very supple and flexible. The design details are still sharp and show very little wear. Tooling leather is a bit harder than harness leather and will hold the fine tooling details indefinitely.

Shoulder Piece Leather Nice quality vintage tooling leather and well broken in - very supple and flexible. The design details are still sharp and show very little wear. Tooling leather is a bit harder than harness leather and will hold the fine tooling details indefinitely.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into the original needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium and in great shape.
Shoulder Piece Notables The slightly curved shape favors the left shoulder of a right handed player and the strap would work equally well either attached to either the heel button or headstock of a guitar. Since the shoulder piece doesn’t slide on the strap to adjust position I’ll also need an additional measurement to properly locate it for you. Fully lined on the bottom with new suede leather.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Excellent quality and broken in soft and supple. Skived to 1/8” in thickness with hand dressed and burnished edges and slicked smooth on the bottom.
Strap Distressed Level Medium. Well aged with some wrinkles and color shading..
Strap Notables A few inches on the front end were skived thin enough to make a neat and flexible connection to the shoulder piece and securely fastened with two rows of double stitched artificial sinew. I’ll attach the strap at the back of the shoulder piece exactly the same way when I do the included custom fitting for buyer’s specified length and attachment points..
