This all leather guitar strap is made with a very unique finish lambskin that has a post apocalyptic-industrial punk vibe with the coloring and textures (looks like old concrete with oil stains, acid attack & other industrial abuse), which blends & contrasts with the smooth grey base cowhide base.
The strap shown is the one you will receive, and is the very the last of this special lambskin I can find. The price is dramatically reduced due to some color transfer onto the slot end and adjustment strap, a result of the strap being rolled up & stored with other leather straps.
(My background is natural grey limestone, and almost matches this leather in some angles. All photos with natural light & no photo processing effects).
The lambskin is left raw at the edges that show white where cut, and is glued & edge stitched about 1/16" in from the edge of the main cowhide. I used a grey thread to blend in with the lambskin and main grey strap, so the stitching is hardly noticeable.
The strap is 2.5" wide, tapering down to about 2" at the front peg hole'--less taper than my usual straps, but I wanted to keep as much of this amazing lambskin visible! There is a slight taper to about 2.25" on the slot end.
The 1" wide adjustment strap is made with the same leather as the main strap so it can weave through the adjustment slots easily, but it is still firm, and will not stretch. The edges are trimmed with a small radius bevel tool to soften the look. The hide is through-dyed, so it is consistent on the edges as on its soft suede split underside.
The overall length of this strap as shown is adjustable from about 48" to 59". The main strap is about 42" long, and the 11 slots are spaced from about 29" to 40" from the front peg hole. The adjustment strap is 18" from slot to its rear peg hole when installed. (I refer to the front peg hole being on the main strap, and the rear is the adjustment slot).
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. And I've laser etched my logo onto this smaller piece.
The holes for the pegs are punched at 5/16" in the front, and 3/8" in the back, and a small slit ends with a small hole at the top of the slit to prevent tears & the "keyhole" effect makes the strap easier to install & remove, and can accommodate most pegs. The firm leather and stitching around the front peg hole keeps strap to remain secured once it's fitted fully in place.
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.
If you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know. There is no extra charge for enlarging the peg holes or for the ties when you order the strap, but please note in the order if you want any of those changes.
I can make a version longer or wider--though the lambskin may not cover as much as the main strap, please convo me with your customization request.
If you have any questions, please convo me!
