    A while back for Mrs. Believer's early Christmas gift this year, she got to order her Revair hair drying vaccum. (Yes it is a vacuum for sucking the water out of your hair...look it up)
    So when she asked me what I wanted the first thing that came to mind was a BoStrap. After contacting @Bodean and going back and forth trying to figure out what I wanted that he could do on it we decided on a design concept and I gave him all the liberties he would need. Then sent him a couple things that I wanted incorporated into it. The first was a curb chain that I had left over from an old biker belt that fell apart. The second was a necklace that Mrs. Believer bought for me several years ago right after we got married.
    Today I went to pick up my mail from being held while on vacation and there was a box with my name on it. As soon as I cut the tape on the box the kitchen filled with the beautiful aroma fresh leather.
    After digging through what seemed to be 352 plastic bags used for packing padding I found it.
    Now I present BoStrap #68 for your viewing pleasure.

    The Stainless Steel pick is from the necklace and has the engraving, "Greg, You will always be my pick". The lettering is a verse in the old testament that Mrs. Believer says reminds her of me when it comes to courage and how I view the trials that I face in life.
    Thanks Jeff! You really got everything I wanted on this one. Great job!

    Wow Greg, that is a serious piece of leather you’ve got there, it should last you the rest of your life. And it’s very nice looking.

    It is just a shirt that I came across at Marshalls about a month ago. It really caught my eye and was the right size so I bought it and now it's one of my favorite t-shirts.

    This strap is both a little stiffer and wider than I am used to. The stiffness comes from having the chain attached to the smaller piece of leather then the 2 pieces of leather sewn together. The chain acts as a backbone for the strap but it isn't so stiff that it's uncomfortable in any way. The work and thought that went into this strap is second to none IMHO. Plus it will soften up over time as all leather does.
    It also fits well with it's brothers

    One other thing that I forgot to mention earlier is that I asked for there to be a second strap lock hole to be put into the front so that I could add a second lock in reverse position for use on my Jackson RRXMG.
    Plus today my new Schaller S-locks came in so now the strap is complete with three locks to be used on all of my guitars...including my acoustic.
