Adjustable guitar strap


Developed in collaboration with real-life guitar players, Leather for Folkies guitar straps are made to last and contain no metal parts that might scratch your pride and joy. They are also the ideal ‘blank canvas’ for customisation by tooling, dyeing, initialling and so on.

Product Description

Available in brown, black, red, navy or wine. The strap is made of two parts: the wider shoulder strap is a comfortable 2 1/4″ wide and the tail piece is 1″ wide. Adjustment is provided by passing the tail through the appropriate slot in the shoulder strap and back on itself.

Guitar straps are made from durable leather of about 3mm thickness which is also surprisingly supple, and fully finished on the flesh (reverse) side. The guitar strap pictured is in wine, and one image shows the end of the shoulder strap with a strap lock fitted (strap lock not included).

Also pictured is a bespoke guitar strap bearing the silver boar and white rose, the heraldic charges of Richard III: an example of custom tooling as well the use of pyrography for the motto. And a strap with only painted decoration: a portrait of Django Reinhardt.

Holes are punched in the ends of both the shoulder strap and the tail piece at 10mm (3/8″ in old money) and with a 16mm relief cut (5/8″-ish) which seems to be suitable for a fairly wide range of guitars. If you need a different sized hole and/or relief cut, this can be accommodated free of charge. Please mention this when ordering or enter such information in the ‘Order Notes’ box at the checkout, if buying online. Better that it’s done with the proper tools than you have to ream out the hole yourself with a Stanley knife and accidentally cut your finger off; especially as it’s a free service.

A highly customisable item; you too could use your guitar strap to demonstrate your allegiance to a particular medieval king or gypsy jazz guitarist. Please get in touch if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary.
