GUITAR STRAP # 189
Custom made for Gary in the US

Original design 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

length 46" - 51" - width 2 3/4"

Gary's comment

Hi Chantal,
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!
Regards,
Gary
