    Does anyone have one? Has anyone used one. Seem to be reasonably priced and, if pictures mean anything, they look good.

    Nicest looking strap you can get for the (that little) money. I have one, there will be more.

    I don’t think they’ll last a lifetime though if that’s a concern.

    I searched for a strap for about a year and Walker & Williams was really in the running . I wanted something different for my Martin HD-35 . Strap model G-813 really caught my eye . I liked the ring in the strap . I wound up purchasing a strap from LM Products which seemed to have a bit more style to my liking . Very happy with LM Products Strap but I do like what Walker and Williams offers too .

    * Strap by itself was made by forum member RichMoo but he hasn't been active for a while .

    I've had a Walker&Williams since May 2017 or so. Very smooth, comfortable leather, but the shoe polish odour was almost intolerable at first. I had to keep the strap out for a week or so :) ...and it didn't help much at all. The odour will weaken gradually of course.

    I picked on up for my G6119-1959. I've been wanting something with some red in it to compliment the finish. This should be perfect, black, read and some gray. At some point, I'm planning on installing a silver pickguard (inspired by Tavo's red Setzer Hot Rod with the silver metal flake guard), so it should match perfectly.

    Good looking strap. I had a Gibson strap with a ring in it. What a nightmare every time I took the strap off or on or Heaven forbid, I lifted the guitar off with the strap connected. That ring always slammed into the guitar body. It was even worse if I tried to set the guitar on a guitar stand with the strap still on. I now only use straps with no metal on them, other than strap locks.

    Thanks . It's always been a concern ... " the slam " but I am over cautious and fortunately , the ring / metal has never given me any trouble . For some reason it does stay away from the guitar , and that's with both of them . Lucky I guess

    I just bought this strap. I thought it would look great with my Red Tennessee Rose.

    I had inadvertently ordered the wrong strap, but I called them and we caught it in time. So . . . I’m going to be getting this strap.

    Nice folks too. I called to make a change in my order and got to speak to one of the nicest fellows I’ve spoken to in a long time. They seem to be willing to earn their customer’s business.

    I think it’s going to prove to be a great choice.
