    So my Broadway Jade is screaming for a strap other then the light colored leather suede on I have now. I think I will save a bit and go for this but the darn price is high. I think it would go well with the Broadway jade even though it isn't a green strap. Keep the Far East feel going.

    That’s not to much to spend on a guality leather strap...go for it.

    Nice, just not a fan of something so recognizable.

    Life is short. Get what pleases you. The $ differential between something that "works" and what would bring happiness is minimal in the long run.

    This strap is absolutely gorgous. Well worth the price, imho.

    You might want to read some reviews of their straps before you buy. There are several sites where people said their straps started peeling after a short time. I was going to buy one of their vintage style straps until I saw those reviews.

    Forum member Richmoo made this for me for $60 . Designed after the Duane Allman strap . I love the strap . We spoke on the phone and his main concern was that I was satisfied . He told me he wanted to retire and do leather making but his health was not so great . I haven't seen him on the forum since he made this for me in Feb of 2015 . I hope he's well . I like your strap @Bertotti . I say buy it ...

    That should make for an interesting visual effect. I like it.

    BTW, thanks for introducing me to Walker & Williams. I had some extra money which was going to be wasted on savings and /or investing in my future. Now I won’t be reduced to such drastic measures. :)

    I bought a Walker & Williams strap about a year ago, after finding out about them here. I've been very happy with mine, and consider it my finest strap.

    As a leather worker, I think $75.00 is a great price. A lot of work went into that with the carving and coloring. Very pretty I might add.

    I Bought one of these Airline straps in black with white stripe. It is very stiff and kind of heavy. Not sure if this is made the same way or not... Mine has heavy webbing for a backing.
