Guitar/Banjo #2154

Well done original hand tooling on a comfortably curved shoulder piece that favors the left shoulder of a right handed player. A sweet ride for any of the acoustics and a fairly lightweight strap for its size.

Status SOLD
Shoulder Piece Size 15" long by 2 1/4" wide where it will cross your shoulder, tapering to 1 3/4” at the back. Hand shaped ends and fully dressed and burnished edges. The curved shape would work best with a heel button attachment or fastened to the bracket bolts on a banjo.
Shoulder Piece Leather Excellent quality and broken in very soft and supple.
Shoulder Piece Stitching Artificial sinew hand sewn into the original needle holes.
Shoulder Piece Distressed Level Medium. Age darkened with a worn and visually authentic vintage character. No checking or battle scars other than a dark stain which is visible in the photo.
Shoulder Piece Notables This is a well used piece but the intricate tooling details are still sharp. Email me if you’d like some closer photos. 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. The bottom of the shoulder piece is lined with new suede leather.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 5/8"
Strap Leather Butter soft, top shelf harness leather. Lightly skived to level out the thickness, with original hand dressed and burnished top edges. I dressed and burnished the bottom edges and slicked it smooth on the back side.
Strap Distressed Level Medium. Age darkened and a spot on match to the shoulder piece.
Strap Notables A few inches on each 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. Includes a custom set-up to your specs for length and attachment points.
