Guitar/Banjo #2052

An extremely nice version of the strap style popular in the 60’s. Unlike the originals, this one lacks the deadly metal buckles, cheap leather, and sloppy fitting cookie cutter strap slots. This one is larger than the originals and would best serve a dreadnaught or Mastertone style banjo and it would love an old Strat or Tele.
