    Sweetwater has been running a sale on Levy's leather 2.5 inch for $29.99.
    Bought one and after seeing how nice picked up another.
    M17BSS-BRN and BLK are the models.
    Brown and black is only difference.

    Either a BoStrap or if you are looking for really soft and padded and flexible as well as simple, my favorite is Franklin Straps.

    And I saw this exact same strap in brown at Guitar Center a few weeks ago.

    It's been my #1 strap for almost a decade now.

    .

    Find a Tandy store near you and get some leather, dye, dye stabilizer, and maybe a fun stamp.

    Ahh... But there is a difference between "thrifty" and "cheap" ;)
    Straps and holsters... I could have saved $1500 if I'd just bought the $200 ones to start with.
