Guitar/Banjo #2121

I don’t know if this gem will make you a great musician but you’ll definitely look like one. Beautiful vintage leather repurposed into a knockout strap. This is an absolute dandy – and a heavy-duty piece of leather real estate that will not tolerate hanging around parlor guitars, open back banjos, or ukuleles.
