Recently, the original strap that Neil had sewn at first to denim, then to a wider leather guitar strap was re-released, which has allowed us to create a replica strap that is just about exactly like the one Neil Young still wears. This is our Denim version. The Denim strap is created custom for you, and it's labor intensive, as we meticulously cut up old jeans to look as similar as possible to Neil's strap when it was on denim. The denim is glued around a 2.75 inch wide leather strap, then the woven strip is stitched on top. We back the strap in high quality black suede and add leather tips to the front and back, which are stitched with white thread like Neil's was. We use distressed eyelets in the adjustment holes to keep the woven fabric from fraying. We add our signature oxidized adjustment buckle to give you 9 inches of adjust-ability.
Give us a couple of weeks to create this for you, we're usually faster than we say, but we need a little time for this one.
We recommend that you measure your current strap, laid out flat, from the center of one peghole to the center of the other peghole. We offer this strap in our Regular and Long versions, but we might as well cut it to your perfect length while we're at it!
You can order this guitar strap with the front Peace Signs and Doves running upside down or right side up.
We also create the leather version, which you can find by going back to Replica Guitar Straps.
