The choice off the shelf is wide, from faux leather, through ‘reconstituted’ to full hide, padded or unpadded, with prices ranging from £15 to £50. But if you’re looking for something more unique and individual, Randy Straps can make you a bespoke premium leather strap to your very own design. Needless to say, it’s not the cheapest way to hang your axe – prices range from £30 to £500, but it does offer the opportunity of getting the padding where you want it, with the ideal width and length and with a design that is totally unique. Ours was made up as a fully padded, black 3-inch wide quality hide strap with a harlequin design created by the maker, Sarah Rand. Attached to a GS1, it proved the perfect partner, distributing the weight of the guitar evenly and comfortably over the shoulders, while in performance its striking design turned quite a few heads! Randy Straps has come up with some extraordinary designs – the Navajo is adorned with beads and feathers. And each strap gets it’s own certificate and identifying number – it’s almost as if you own a work of art. Actually, with these beautifully crafted straps – you do! For more go to www.randystraps.com
