Guitar/Banjo #2081

This one is a Tony Rice style strap – named after one of the greatest bluegrass guitarists of all time – and the Dunlop Pick model . Formerly tortured for many years as a cinch strap, it’s now happily retired and looking for a home on a red hot flatpicker’s D-28. The leather is old, well used and broken in butter soft. At almost 3/16” in thickness, this is no “thin as suede” strap but it will easily roll up into a 4″ diameter coil that will fit into the accessory compartment of your case. A sweet ride and the perfect companion for a vintage acoustic. I should put it on my 50 year old D-18 and be done with it. But to be honest, as a guitar player, I’m not near worthy enough.

Strap Leather Originally this was the strap that held the saddle and accompanying rider firmly on the horse’s back. Over many years it has been tugged and pulled as tightly as possible transforming it into a soft and supple piece of leather. It’s unskived at the original thickness (almost 3/16”) and the backside has been worn smooth.
Strap Distressed Level Medium. Old and well used but the latigo leather is butter soft and brutally strong. It looks like it has already given someone a lifetime of use and it will easily finish out your shift and probably someone else’s as well.
Strap Notables Stitched just above the heel button hole is an oversize leather Dunlop shaped guitar pick. There are 5 original buckle holes on the strap spaced about 5” apart. The first hole is 14” above the leather pick.End buttonholes will be added at the buyer's specified lengths and I’ll taper the back end to match the front.
