I have this one on my CS356 Gibson. I took a shot of the back of the strap to show the padding. I have a plan soft wide strap off my SG with no padding, but this one is my favorite. I’ve had it for about 20 years, so I consider it to be a permanent resident by law.

This is a non padded, wide and very soft strap for my SG Standard. The part that goes through the adjustment loops used to bunch up, so I took it to my shop (auto upholstery) and sewed that sucker in place permanently using the same color nylon thread that was used on the border of it when they made it. Even without padding it’s very comfortable because of the width and because the leather is so soft.

Then there’s always this 🤪🤪. There was an entire thread on the Fender case-Candy strap and it wasn’t good for the most part. As corny as it looks, it’s actually pretty comfortable. I saw John Mayer using one at a live show years ago and decided if he can sport one, so can I. Hey, it was free - I’ve got 2 more in fact, but they’re still in the plastic package they came in. Who knows, 50 years from now they may be worth something.

I think you’re in the top spot, but since I’m the OP, I’ll add some more of mine. That looks expen$ive!
It's all relative. I shudder to think about spending more than thou even on a telecaster that Keef gave to Page gave to Bruce LOL!

Must not have been that good.

Yeah, it was just a hand-me-down! But, did it come with one of your awesome straps? You should post more of your beautiful craftsmanship on here - we’d love to gawk! Thanks for that contribution to the thread.

Animal cruelty!😆
My Dad has gators in his pond way down south, and he doesn’t really want them there. I outta go down there and do some “exotic strap” shopping on my own. The game warden several years ago told him it’s illegal to kill them, but said he’s heard of a few dying from “lead poisoning.” Strangely, not long after that, some did mysteriously die from apparent lead poisoning. What a coincidence.

Metal parts on straps look extremely cool, but have always scared me. I can’t help but picture them banging around on the guitar’s finish!
Maybe I’m just careful and/or fortunate, but I’ve never had the conchos or strap locks on my strap(s) damage one of my guitars…but I probably just jinxed myself, 😜
