    Just a quick recommendation for Italia Leather Straps, which occasionally throws a special deal Gretsch-Talk's way. I recently accessorized two of my favorite guitars with Italia straps.

    These colors are Wine and Acorn, both with Black backings. Italia offers several other colors.

    I'm pleased with the quality of the straps. They're comfortable, the colors and grains look good, and the suede backing leather is soft and not slippery.

    The straps come in two lengths, Standard and Long. I'm about 5'11", and the Standard length fits me just right when it's almost all the way extended, as shown. (I could move it down one more loop to get another couple inches out of it.) I agree with Italia's recommendation that you consider the Long size if you're taller than 6' or if you like to wear your guitar low.

    Besides the 2.5" width shown here, the straps are available in 4" width.

    Good to know, I've been tempted every so often by those offers. They look nice and soft, not stiff.
