hello all..what is this crud on my strap. Can I clean and restore, or pitch. What do you do? Thank's
Not to worry, @puddin - this is a tarnish transfer from your strap-pin.
Common on nickel, aluminum and brass, reacting to the leather.
Never seen (by me) on a chrome component.
Damp cloth (diluted soap, if you wish) for a wipe-down, until it returns.
I don't think there's any harm caused by this, and others shouldn't be able to see it unless they remove your strap (don't let 'em).
Peace - Deeve
Thank you..soapy water..I was gonna pitch it. cheers!!
sorry i blew up..cheers
@puddin, no harm no foul, but, were you seriously thinking of pitching that strap?
Have you never owned, say, a pair of lace-up leather work boots? They get similar wear marks and are still 100% functional and useable.
Maybe moreso, even, because the leather is no longer stiff, and it's starting to break in
Cheers to you!
You better pitch it this way...that's toxic mold...
no.. never had to..and now I'm old and it's to late.
The strap is finished. It will not support the weight of your guitar.
PM me and I'll give you an address you can mail it to where it will do no harm.
It wouldn't happen to be from a sunburst Les Paul, would it?
Where there is life, there is hope
A man who ain't never had a pair o' work boots...
Is that strap from a PRS?
No heritage cherry plain top. cheers..
no just a Gibson.
Leather strap: Great for guitars, sharpening razors, not so great getting whupped by. Have, done or have had done to all three!
