Guitar/Banjo #2018

A nice piece of vintage eye candy and a real comfortable strap for any of the guitars or banjos. Note that the combined thickness of the shoulder piece and the hand twisted rein strap is ½”. Should fit into most banjo cases while attached to a banjo but you might want to check your case situation first.

Status SOLD
Shoulder Piece Size 12” long and 2 3/8” wide.
Shoulder Piece Leather Soft and supple harness leather. Excellent quality and well broken in. Reasonably thick for support yet will perfectly form to the contours of your shoulder. Fully dressed and burnished around the outside edge.
Shoulder Piece Stitching New artificial sinew hand sewn into hand punched needle holes. New black waxed harness thread hand sewn into hand punched needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium. A few bumps and bruises.
Shoulder Piece Notables Slotless shoulder piece. The rein strap is securely held tight to the shoulder piece by the two matching vintage leather strap guides, allowing the full bottom surface area to contact the shoulder.Hand shaped rounded ends and dressed and burnished edges. Lined wall to wall on the bottom with new suede leather.
Strap Style Western roping rein with hand-twisted braiding. The braiding is 36” long and when finished some of the braiding will be visible in front of the shoulder piece and some behind it. The braided section was cut into 5 strips and somehow hand twisted into the braid by the original craftsman. I’m a banjo player and not near smart enough to do this.
Strap Width 1” on the flat ends, 5/8” across the braid.
Strap Leather Excellent quality and heavy duty.
Strap Distressed Level Medium/high. Rock solid leather that’s seen a lot of use.
Strap Notables Includes a custom fit for length and attachment points. Standard or pick-up buttonholes will be punched directly into the 1” wide strap.
