Flicking through Instagram recently I noticed something familiar about an image of Jake Kiszka, guitarist with top American rock outfit Greta Van Fleet. Looking closer I realised he had his Gibson SG guitar slung on a Pinegrove GS61 Limited Edition strap.
Pinegrove Leather endorsers Ida Mae toured with GVF in spring 2019, so we sent Chris Turpin a new strap to go with his new all-brass slide guitar. We also included a few straps for the boys in GVF. It seems Jake likes his!
By the look of the tailpiece on the SG, it's an early 60s model with a Vibrola sideways tremolo bar.
Greta Van Fleet are of course The New Big Thing in US rock music. Their debut full-length studio album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, was released late in 2018, and topped the Billboard Rock Album charts straight after its release. Singer Josh Kiszka has a vocal style likened to Robert Plant, and the songwriting has its feet deep in prog rock roots. So if you're into Led Zeppelin et al, give these boys a listen.
