This guitar strap is made with a very unique leather with a natural colored bodied cowhide that has a top finish that looks like black crackled over red (like old paint), and has a very smooth and waxy feel.
The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers to about 2" at the front end, and slightly at the slot end, and is about 42" long. I have softened the cut edges with a small beveler, so there is a gentle transition from the top surface to the edge. The cut edges show the lighter leather body.
Eleven adjustment slots are cut about every 1", and the 1" wide adjustment strap loops through the chosen slot and is woven through the other slots to provide the desired length and fixes to the back pin on the guitar.
I cut the adjustment strap to about 22", so the overall length can be adjusted from about 48" to 60" between the peg holes. With the remaining inventory of these, I can easily modify shorten length or spacing to get the fit that works for you. This leather is just over 1/8" thick and firm, so it will not stretch out with use!
The holes for the pegs are punched at 5/16" in the front and 3/8" on the adjustment strap, and a small slit ends with a small hole to prevent tears is added for a "keyhole" effect to make the strap easy to install & remove, and can accommodate most pegs, and remain securely in place. If you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know.
This design means the strap is only leather, and there is no metal or plastic hardware that could annoy you while you're playing, or your knock into you instrument while it's being moved or stored.
I can also provide leather "laces" if you prefer to tie the strap to the neck of the guitar, rather than using a front peg. There is no extra charge for these when you order the strap, but please note in the order you want it included.

My husband loves the work that Bansai8Creations does. He has commented over the years that these are the best guitar straps he's ever seen

The guitar strap is absolutely gorgeous and it was exactly what I was hoping for! It looks exactly like the picture it will be the perfect gift for my guitarist :). Shipping took no time at all and the seller gave the shippers my email so I was the one receiving updates. It was such a pleasure shopping with her and I will for sure do it again!
