    Hello, I'm planning to get one of these Straps for my sunburst 50s Tele. I already have a vintage style Fender strap but I don't like it because it's a bit too narrow and uncomfortable. Which one of these straps would be the most period correct? Did Fender also produce Straps in dark brown or in black with black stitch in the 50s?

    Thank you

    Black with cream stitching is about as cool as you can get.

    I use the brown Fender one that came with my '58 AV sunburst Tele. Only brown guitar strap I own, but I think it looks great with the sunburst finish.

    Can you special order those Pinegrove straps without the embossing? They look OK over all, but the embossing would be a deal killer for me.
