drawn by me.
This guitar strap is embossed on 2.5 mm thick vegetable tanned modeling cowhide leather.
It has then been painstakingly dyed around the design in a Burgundy colour 3 times.
The the gold was also hand painted 3 coats, additionally it was also antiqued to bring out the depth in the design and sealed to protect the paint (should last a life time)
It is lined with garment grade black leather and stitched right around with a thick metallic gold waxed cord.
The edges of the leather has been finished with a black edge dye and polished for comfort.
Took a good deal of time
to make but it is worth it, I think
- 51" - width 2 3/4"
I received the strap a couple of days ago and I wanted to give myself a bit of time before responding. It is really beautiful and comfortable. It works very well with my Les Paul (I'll send you a picture when i get a chance). You executed my idea wonderfully and your skill made it into something well beyond what I had envisioned.
Thank you so much and I look forward to designing the next one!
