Leather and tapestry guitar strap # 139

to Geordie in Canada

This guitar strap is made out of real one of a kind needle point wool tapestry not something cut out of a roll.
Made by me one stitch at a time. The old fashion way as used in upholstering chairs etc and is extremely durable.
It is lined with a cowhide suede with the edges turned over. The ends are 2 thicknesses of 1.5 mm cow hide vegetable tanned leather.

This guitar strap is extra wide (4 inches) at the shoulder down to 1 3/4 inches on the ends. It is supple and extremely comfortable, offering good support over the all shoulder.

The strap is hand stitched right around (saddle stitched, in linguo) with a strong braided nylon cord as used by saddle makers and it uses pelham hooks for the adjustment like the one I use in my "O "series , plainer guitar straps. http://www.pccord.com/plainer_guitar_straps.htm

length 44" - 52" - width 4" at the shoulder down to 1 1/2 inches on the ends
