    Ha ha!!!! To funny!!! Yeah, the original one is very nice. I would like one for each as well, but as you know they get pricey. I have 2 guitars that still don't have their own straps. I think I'll a take a cue from you and get some financial commitments out if the way and buy a strap at a time. When you do get it, post a pic of your axe with the new strap

    I have a black one. It's a plain Jane but it feels comfortable.

    I would have the same issue. And that's why, to me, that guitar cries out for a white strap. Easy enough to match and balances the overall color proportions better.

    Richmoo also made mine...pricing, if I recall, was similar to thunder58's...I would also highly recommend him if he is still making straps.

    Yes, a fancy strap is nice... Those Jade/Surf Green ones would match your Gretsch color, Bertotti :cool:

    For me, lasting quality, smoothness, flexibility and comfort are the first order criterias.

    My straps are not very fancy - not to say nearly simple, or even basic... But handmade in France from premium leather by a Guy who knows his job. 15 years after, still perfect like at the 1st day.

    If you have a guitar that you love and perform with, your guitar deserves chromexel horsehide w american made hardware and stitching. www.codinaleather.com , summabitch never gives me anything free, so that should tell you that I'm not his salesman. I'm a satisfied customer with champagne tastes and a volkwagen budget. I dont buy often but when I do, its the best damn quality on the planet.
    I just ordered a codina python strap exactly like this but w a few gems of turquoise for pop.

    I am careful to not even drop my picks. I bought a couple Bluechip picks, love them and protect them like they are made of gold. I don't put them where I might lose them. That is why I asked a nice snug fit and it might be ok to have those pockets but they look a bit shallow in the picture so it doesn't inspire enough confidence for me to consider using them. I will have my strap but the pick pocket idea is cool so I was curious. Thansk! [/QUOTE]

    Yeah, they could be kind of shallow for an expensive Blue Chip, or an expensive pick that you don't want to lose. I'll have to check the depth of the pick pockets out closer, though - I just got the pick pocket strap a couple days ago, and haven't really used it yet.

    That's at least 3 of us with a strap from Rich. Shows he was last active in April of 2018.

    Thanks! I got it when I "retired" from playing in local bands.

    It's a 1982 Les Paul Standard...not sure of the official color name, I call it cherry sunburst.

    The first one looks a bit fishy, but I’ll drink to the second one. :)

    Saki with sushi? I really don't know why I like the Koi one but I do. When I was in China I liked how Jade was occasionally used with a coral red kind of like some do here with turquoise and coral. I love turquoise and coral so this should work for me. But sadly now I want Saki and Sushi!
