    Figures. There's a couple of places to get the usual ring strap but I think you'd have to have a Mountain strap commissioned by someone like yourself to get one. I wouldn't even care if it didn't have the ring with all of that fine leather work.

    Ironically, that ring on the Mountain strap is different than the flat ring on the Ring strap. It looks to be more of a standard, round brass ring. Seen below.

    I can only imagine how much Duane loved that, Mountain strap the first time he saw it. It'd have been something else to have been there, just to see his reaction.

    Beautiful work!

    Strap came today earlier than expected. Love it and the wife said “that’s beautiful!” Thanks Jeff and thanks for the pick holder too.

    Actually, I can... these are pics of my own leathercraft. Admittedly not as Bodeany as Bodean's fine work, which I continue to admire fully knowing what it takes.

    Guys, gals, support custom makers and craftsmen to get huge lasting value, handmade soul and visual presence. Your guitars deserve unique, robust and comfortable slings not pooped out of some BIG STRAP factory by the thousand.

    Beautiful work in this thread brother!
