    You would be correct. A former SC high school football coach that went back to PA.

    The crossroads strap is for a member in Cali. He made himself a black Gilmour strat. So it would go with his guitar I added the Gilmour strap lacing.

    Also about the crossroads strap, I had to crowd the design more than I wanted to. Because of the short distance of this persons strap on the front. The more strap one has showing on the front side the more room I have to work in a design. I think I only had 12 inches on this one from strap button to where the shoulder starts to get it in.

    I dig the SC one. Moving there in a couple years.

    How about one with a take off of Springsteen's pickguard?

    They're cool. If I was on your side of the Atlantic I'd go for that. There's a couple of ideas I have for custom straps. There's one or two makers here in NE England, so I might see about having something made.

    Just wanted to post a few more pictures of straps i have done. Each one is an idea that a member came to me with, and I drew it up and found a way to relay it on leather.
