    For such a small size every time I see it I creep myself out. I believe for such a small size likeness, I did do a pretty good job getting the detail in. I was having a good day I guess.:D

    Yeah you did...and yes you do. Very detailed. The shading/contrast is pretty incredible. Brought it to life.

    @Bodean I’m still trying to sort out that idea we discussed when you were working on the dog strap. Admittedly, I’ll forget, and then I’ll be watching a movie or something, get an idea, not enough to fully formulate it, and then forget again...but I am still trying to figure that one out.

    Anyway, one of the things we talked about was a background finish that looked like parchment, but you had some reservations about being able to make that look right. Groovey’s strap jumped out at me when I saw it. That’s pretty much it.

    Is that effect particularly difficult for you to do? If that’s something you can replicate, I think I might be closer to sorting the next order out.

    If you are referring to the Monster strap, and the color around them, then yeah I can replicate that easily. it is actually an antique black gel. When applied it to plain leather it has sorta a brownish, greenish hue that is hard to explain. It would probably vary from leather piece to leather piece. Colors can be unpredictable at times.

    Jeff, I gotta say man, this is really very nice. You managed to surpass all my expectaions on this strap brother. And the fit, as you sent it is just perfect for a strat style guitar.

    I cant wait to get a shower, long day at work, and try it out on my acoustics too. Man, I just cant say enough good things about it. And the 4” width is perfect.

    The wheels are already turning for a second one. My younger brother, by six months, is waiting for his brand new Squier Deluxe Strat to be delivered any day now. And he’s got a birthday coming up soon, well july, you know how time fly’s at our age. Lol.

    Thanks again and you can oficially add me to your happy customer list.

    Hey, do you do anything like the conversions for Sustainers , or should I just save up for the real Sustainiac?

    Never considered it. It is a patented system. Would seem to be above my pay grade at first glance.

    Ok, strap q.

    When you did my strap #42 you sewed suede on the pad. If you weren't going to put padding between the suede and the main strap, how would you attach the suede?
