How about getting Crazy Heart Leather to make a matching strap?
Hey Brobar !
Beautiful !!!!, actually the strap is a great suggestion
That's beautiful, and a very moving story.
I'm not into body bindings on Telecasters and I'm not into leather but your guitar is a beautiful tribute to your daughter and a real work of art. I love it. I know you'll be thinking of her every time you pick it up.
Beautiful. Wonderful, loving tribute to your daughter. Thanks for posting.
I have never been a fan of leather pickguards, but I just changed my mind. I love things that have meaning; and when they are also beautiful like your guitar, it just does not get any better.
I've thought about that. He has made some sweet straps. If he is up for it, I may just have him do that one of these months.
I hope you don't mind me making a suggestion. Being a designer in a former life, I thought that the strap could have the same 'core' and edging colour / texture as the scratchplate, so they look like a 'matching set' and the strap only gets used with that guitar. I don't know what the tooling limitations are, but if possible, a nice touch could be to repeat the winged heart (but a lot smaller) about 4 to 6 inches from the top strap button hole, so depending on how high up or low down you wear your guitars, the little heart would line-up with your big heart, if you see what I mean.
I've thought a lot about you and this moving story while at work today and you have my deepest sympathy.
Great guitar and I love the pickguard as well
sorry to hear of your Daughter,i just lost my oldest one.
the pickguard looks amazing!
I hate hearing about parents losing their children. No parent should ever have to bury their own child! That's not supposed to be the order of things. It's absolutely the most excruciatingly painful thing I've ever experienced and I wouldn't wish it on anyone! My condolences!
My condolences on the loss of your daughter. That pick guard really is stunning. I really like the way the background texture ties everything together and is something I don't think I've seen on a leather pick guard.
Thanks. Yeah that texture was a specific request. I figured it would look very flat with all of that negative space. I didn't want him adding any design to it because I didn't want it being distracting and taking away from the heart and wings. So I asked if he could texture the negative space so it would add just a little something without it being distracting. I also wanted some "depth" and nice texturing to the wings.
He gave me exactly what I requested and knocked it out of the park! If I ever get another guard done, he'll be the guy I go back to!
Stunning. Absolutely stunning.
Very sorry to hear about your daughter.
