Leather guitar strap # 75
to Robert in Texas
"The Metal Strap"

I think the title says it all about my inspiration for this one. This guitar strap is meant to Rock and Roll.
It is built of sections of different metallic leathers riveted together. The aged silver leather is a 1 mm calf skin glued on 1.5 mm vegetable tanned leather backing. The Brass colored sections are a heavily textured leather reminiscent of a brass grill in my mind's eye.
The all lot is hand stitched to a 1.5 mm cowhide suede with a heavy grade Nylon waxed thread.
The design is mirrored on the back.

Please note that it is quite a long strap but I could easily add and extra button hole to the tail end should it be deemed necessary, bringing the length down to 49 1/2 " at its shortest.

length 51 1/2" to 57 1/2", width 3"at the widest part to 1 1/2" at the tail end
