Stop the Stereotypes! Defining your bass guitar straps

Tired of walking into a gig and being stared up and down by gawking spectators who are already deciding if they like you – before you play? You are the bass guitarist, so of course you are the “smart one.” We all know the stereotypes: drummers are cocky, guitarists are the most talented and the singers always get the girls. Everyone knows the bass player just took the easy way out, right?  In reality, most bass guitarists are overlooked and considered dispensable. It sounds harsh, but it is so often the label outsiders assume.

We spend so much time and effort purchasing that perfect guitar; unique, trendy and completely a la mode. Our labors are spent browsing the internet for the hippest and most  body that complements our personality. Just as bass guitarists are often overlooked, so are their guitar straps.

One of those factors: your bass guitar straps.
