Say goodbye to an old friend and welcome new acoustic guitar straps
“My days are done, man. I’m hanging it up,” Old Strap said.
“You’ve always been hanging it up,” Guitar joked.
“No. I’m serious man. I’m just worn out. Time for some new blood to join the band.”
Guitar strummed low. “But you can’t leave. We’re a team. We’ve been to Nashville. We’ve been to Vegas. I don’t know what I’d do without my Old Strap,” said Guitar.
“Hey Guitar. How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” Old Strap asked, trying to lighten the mood.
“In the trunk of a car,” Guitar responded. They both laughed. “I love that one.”
“But seriously, what is The Man going to do without you? He needs Old Strap around.”
“It’s all good. There’s a new kid coming on board. I hear he’s from Strap Graphics,” said Old Strap.
“But The Man needs acoustic guitar straps. I thought all the new kids were just for steel,” Guitar said.
“Are you kidding? Those folks at Strap Graphics know their stuff! This kid will be 2.5 inch or 3.5 inch wide leather with a saweeet soft suede back. And he’ll adjust – 45 inches to 55 inches in length so The Man can have a perfect fit. Hey, remember that time we were in Miami and opened for Jimmy Buffett? How many times did The Man drop you?”
“Don’t remind me. I hate getting dropped.”
“I know you do, but I also hear the new kid will have one of those ‘strap lock’ devices so you won’t get dropped.”
“Do you think this kid will be ‘plain-Jane?’ I mean, The Man has to have some style!”
“Style? Don’t even get me started about style. This new kid will have serious style. He could be burlap-leather, patent leather, or graphic art. Whoa buddy! This kid’s gonna’ have some custom art. Something The Man can really swing with. Not like this old worn out piece of rawhide,” Old Strap sighed.
“I hear that kind of backup is expensive,” said Guitar.
“Naw,” said Old Strap. “The acoustic guitar straps are very affordable. Don’t tell him I told you, but I think The Man had a gift certificate. They do that, too.”
“Well, I’m gonna miss you, Old Strap.”
“I’ll miss you, too, Guitar.”
