Handcrafted one-at-a-time and designed to be at your service for many years,
these custom leather guitar straps will take on a rich character with age.
The main strap is 1" wide, and It has a soft, cushioned leather-wrapped pad for extra comfort. It's compatible with both acoustic and electric instruments, and it has a length range of 115-135cm (45"-53"). For added comfort and durability, all edges are rounded and burnished smooth. Several advanced configurations are available, and the strap can also be personalized with a unique name/monogram of your choice. *Also available with a slim shoulder pad: FOLK style
Made in Toronto, Canada using beautiful full-grain harness leather from the legendary Wickett & Craig tannery.
Screw -or- Buckle Adjustment: Your OCHRE handcrafted guitar strap can also be made with 'Chicago screw' rivets -or- a metal buckle (instead of the default triple holes the back end). This option offers improved length precision, and a more streamlined look, but it does not affect the strap's overall size.
Loop-end: Designed for instruments without a secondary strap pin. Instead of a traditional keyhole, this loop add-on will secure to your instrument's headstock, adding 20cm to the total strap length. The narrow section which sits under the strings measures 1.5cm wide, and 4mm thick. Please ensure this sizing will work with your instrument, taking into account the extra length required to reach the headstock.
Optional Trim: These straps can also be customized with a decorative trim -plain (without trim) is the default.
Enlarged Keyhole option: Some electric/acoustic guitars are fitted with an endpin jack that is wider than most regular strap pins. Although the standard keyhole size will work with these guitars, an enlarged keyhole is a better fit.
Every hide is different, and each one will have its own signature look; range markings, scars, and wrinkles give each piece a unique character. The color examples were photographed under natural light, and they're a good representation of how the leather looks in person, but some variation is always to be expected. With regular exposure to dirt and everyday life, the materials will darken and take on a warm patina.
