If all you want is a simple guitar strap made from a really good piece of leather, then you've found it here. The design is simple, it's all about the leather.
The BS53 Leather Guitar Strap is made from a single piece of full-grain vegetable-tanned Italian leather. This leather has a beautiful, unique natural grain and patina that will only improve with age. It even has a proper leather smell. This leather comes from only the best part of the cowhide where it has the strongest grain. Following tanning, the leather has been softened, resulting in a strap that holds your instrument well and gives maximum comfort. The relic effect built into the leather is unique on every strap. By folding the leather you can increase the effect in places. Rubbing the strap with a natural boot grease will darken it.
Once the shape has been cut out, the edges go through a 5-stage hand-crafted process of bevelling (rounding), polishing, dyeing, sealing and further polishing. The strap is then double stitched all round for extra strength. This is a professional level bass strap that feels good, looks good and even smells good. We sent the first ones out to some busy bass players we know and they all loved it.
The BS53 guitar strap is really wide: a full 3 inches, (76mm), using leather with a minimum thickness of 1/8" (3.5mm) thick (9oz). The strap has a standard interweave adjustment tailpiece with 8 slots, giving a long adjustment range. Three lengths are available. The pin holes are a standard 8mm (3/8") wide. Add a note to your order if you require larger pin holes for strap locks.
Perfect for all guitars and bass guitars, electric and acoustic. This style of guitar strap is also available in a narrower 2 3/8" (60mm) width. See the GS41 Guitar Strap.
