Four ways leather guitar straps can make you happy

 Aside from old men who shake their fists at kids in their yard, who doesn’t want to be happy? Well, here are four ways leather guitar straps can make you a happier guitarist while you’re jammin’ with your friends on stage, or in the garage.

  • Durability: The look and durability of a leather guitar strap is unsurpassed. A leather strap will last most players for many years to come. As an added bonus, the leather stays flexible and comfortable even in some of the most extreme playing conditions. Plus leather is tough stuff, so you have the added security you need to help protect your prized possession.
  • Material Combinations: Recent innovations from leading custom guitar strap makers are combining materials for a number of well thought-out reasons. For example; combinations of leather and burlap guitar straps help give the performer a more natural presence. These material combinations are very stylish looking straps without sacrificing durability a bit.
  • Ideal Width: Pure leather straps, and the newer burlap and leather combinations won’t sacrifice your comfort for style either. You’re relying on the guitar strap to help take some of the weight off your back. But a skinny little guitar strap is going to put it all on your shoulder. Just like the original leather straps, these innovative material combinations are available in 2.5″ and 3.5′ widths from StrapGraphics.
  • Adjustable Length: Most leather guitar straps are adjustable from 45″ to 55″. This length makes them ideal for most adult guitar players, from the smallest to the tallest. A full range of adjustment is necessary to put your guitar at just the right height for you. Plus for safety’s sake, leather guitar strap button holes are sewn snug to fit all standard strap locks.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a new guitarist just learning to walk-the-talk, or an old pro with a rock star attitude, a custom made leather guitar strap is sure to make you happy. Not only will you notice a difference in your ability to wrangle your guitar, but so will everybody else. To talk more about leather guitar straps, or anything else, please Contact Us. Thanks.
