Every one of the custom guitar straps are made of genuine leather. Everything from various types of personalized guitar straps to studded guitar straps to plain padded guitar straps are created at our leather shop with many options to make each one truly unique.
Our personalized guitar straps are the most popular with our customers to be used for themselves or for wonderful unique gifts at special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas or retirement. Everyone from novices to famous guitarists have purchased from us, as we have such a large variety of customized guitar straps and options. We have three styles of lettering that can show off your name.
The classic series custom made guitar strap has the letters debossed into the leather by using metal imprint plates that are pounded into the damp leather with a hammer. These are available in 3/4 inch and 1 inch letter sizes. Other metal decorations can adorn the strap should you want those options.
Our etched series custom made guitar straps have large letters. After the lettering is etched into the leather, the outline is hand painted with an artist tool in a color of your choice. Also we can add some other symbols should you like such as a treble cleff or music notes.
The scripted series custom leather guitar straps are the most time consuming to craft. A tiny hand tool with a textured point is pounded all around the exterior of the hand drawn letters with hundreds of hits with a hammer into the damp leather. Afterwards with precision, the textured area his hand dyed with an artist brush being careful not to get it on the raised natural colored letters. Besides the lettering we can also script in other symbols with the same technique such as music notes, treble clefs, crosses etc.
Our studded guitar strap series are adorned with everything from shot gun shell decorations, interesting metal conchos, typical metal studs, fancy three piece buckle sets to jeweled studs. We can even personalize the strap with silver plated metal letters.
The electric acoustic guitar strap series was inspired by tatoos. The artistry in this series has different colored etching running through the strap such as flowers, dragons, hearts and skulls.
The customized guitar straps in the inlay series can have a name etched in the narrow adjustment strap. Some people like to do this for subtle personalization that is more noticeable to the musician than the public. Sometimes instead of a name, people like to have a special date etched such as for an anniversary. These straps are also very time consuming to make as each part where the inlay shows has to be carefully hand cut and then carefully stitched around every curve. Also these straps are all lined underneath with a soft garment leather which is included in the price.
Many churches are now using praise teams during the services. The praise teams tend to play more contemporary worship music. We have lots of Christian guitar straps that fit in with church musicians that like some religious symbols such as celtic crosses, praying hands, Christian fish symbol etc. Since all our custom leather guitar straps are made to order, you pick which symbols you want us to imprint.
Some plainer less expensive guitar straps are also available such as our double stitch guitar strap which can have contrasting thread colors for effect. The narrow adjustment strap can also be etched with a name or a special date such as an anniversary. The belt style guitar strap is a narrow strap with an interesting hand tooled design down the center.
All our custom guitar straps have many options which can adjust the price. Tall people might like a much longer strap. If you play on stage for hours with a heavy electric guitar, you might want it padded under the lining with sponge rubber. We have tested this 1/4 inch thick sponge rubber and it has great memory. Even after testing it in a clamp overnight, it still sprung back to shape and did not stay compressed. We can also pad the strap for comfort with genuine sheepskin. Stage musicians that play acoustic guitar would not need padding but they might want the strap lined with a soft garment leather to give it that cadillac look and for ease of movement on the shoulder.
