this a new strap that was hand made for me by the singer in the band i am in. his name is stoney paul..he also makes custom motorcycle seats.yes he is on face book. he includes strap locks if ya want them. this one looks great on the ec1000,and is very soft,padded and comfortable. i play very low with my guitar around my waist,and since im so tall,i need a long strap. it is standard deer skin leather but has these black stingray skin inserts or layers under the hand tooled purple leather...very well made custom strap..i would have never bought a strap this nice so thank you stoney...so lets see your straps...got to be some cool ones here to hold up all these killer guitars you guys play.
