As I began to make things out of brass for motorcycles, the Les Paul also demanded a share. Soon i discovered that brass has some very good shielding qualities that improves the sound.      It is non-ferrous, meaning non- magnetic, so it must help to isolate the pups (pick-ups): by blocking magnetic interferences and radio waves is the common assumption. Others attribute this to a bit of magic.

I don't really know why it sounds better???   but it does.

almost the Worlds Finest Guitar Strap

In my estimation this has to be almost the worlds finest guitar strap. almost, because there is no fancy stuff.  its built for work.  If you want a better mousetrap then make one. I did! Just don't try and sell it if its not cheap.  Almost 2 in. wide, made with 8 oz. leather and padded for comfort. this is bootleather. you sit tall in the saddle.  There is no adjustment,  a strap like this is measured eye to eye and made to fit.  An attractive junction is added to the tail section, and could  provide some adjustment. give a 1/2" for break in

when they are gone....thats it!
made in the U.S.A.

$30 ea. -  guitar

$35 banjo/universal
