    Anyone heard the new Line 6 modelling strap ? Very close but I don't think they'll ever get the tone of real leather.

    I use a solid wood strap. One large, arched piece of wood glued directly to the guitar body. It takes all 3 of my bandmates helping to put it on, but the strap holds the guitar away from my body, which really brings out the resonance and the sustain is absolutely unparalleled due to the increased mass. I've tried a few types of wood and have found solid Pecan to be the most stable so far. The extra 40 lbs. of the strap digging into my shoulders and spine makes extended gigging somewhat difficult and I've been in the hospital more than once after trying to swing my guitar around during high-adrenaline stage antics, but neither leather, cotton, nylon nor stainless steel (which I've also tried) really give me the same warm and lively tone as this solid wood contraption...

    I know that the wood that the guitar body is composed of affects the tone, but what about if you are standing on wooden floor tiles. If you were playing a mahogany bodied guitar while standing on mahogany floor tiles, would it enhance the mahogany tone? Would one's tone be snappier playing on a maple floor tile?

    i've actually just finished renovating my home so as not to lose the acoustic magic of my own strap; for studio work i exclusively use the seatbelt my mother was wearing when i was birthed.

    live i usually use my tactical gear.

    HTH,

    I put a pink strap on one of mine and I don't even use it.

    No wonder I sound like ass.

    One of mine is a leather belt I origonally made for pants. I think this may account for the leggy tone I get.
