    Simple and affordable. Couch straps.

    I'd quite like some narrow leather vintage style ones but they're never long enough for what I need.

    So as it is I use the Ernie Ball cheap ones. They get the job done.

    How long do you need it?

    I don't play standing too much, but I like to have a strap for each guitar.

    I usually like unobtrusive straps that won't draw more attention than the guitar itself (though finding a strap that takes attention away from my playing might be a good idea). Therefore, there's a strap I bought just because I happened to be in the Beatles Store in London, which I've never used:


    I've got a couple of cotton straps which I use with my DeArmond T-400 (a D'Addario dark grey strap), and my new (second-hand) Epiphone EJ-200 (Fender, olive green), which are very similar:


    But on buying my Grestch Duo Jet I decided to have a go at a Harley Benton black suede strap:


    What I like most about this, apart from how soft it is, is that it has no hard part that can dent the guitar if I leave it in place all the time. But I need to use it a bit more while standing to see whether it's really comfortable.

    My horsehide strap is pretty amazing if not overkill for my gibson J-100xtra (stripped down super jumbo 200 w bubinga body)
