    I'm looking for a strap for my Les Paul and ran across this. Ummm, nope.

    My daughter bought me a padded leather (or whatever) strap a decade ago (or more?). Still works well with straplocks on all my geetars. One of best gifts ever.

    Edit - no brand name so no idea who made it.

    I can't believe that design made it into production!

    Call me weird (I am) I do not want a big shouty logo (advert) on a strap that I buy.

    Or a leather version of a circumcision.

    Go custom if you can’t find what you’re looking for. @TVvoodoo makes beautiful straps, amazing craftsmanship. Went back less than a month later to order another one because I loved it so much. One of the benefits of going custom, you always get what you want!

    This last one is a strap that Brad’s currently working on for me. This is just a rough cut and sketch so far, but it gives you an idea of what it’ll be like finished!
