    So, you've probably met my newest brown sugar Nashville girl in my NGD thread

    But all my straps are Fender logo or tweed.

    So, how should I dress to take her out?

    Consider that she barely neckdives.

    So far I ordered the Monterey embroided by Planet Waves... Looks cool and the color matches the brown guitar and my usual plain black tees...

    And the Hootenanny

    You seem to share my taste in straps.

    Yeah man, a brown SG requires a Monterey/Woodstock hippie inspired strap, not meaning to put aside leather ones

    i get ALL of my straps from Brad/Well-Hung. they are quality, rugged, and extremely comfortable. Brad's a great guy who will work with you on custom options as well. Ridiculously fair prices too

    He's got quite a few others listed in his reverb store if that particular one doesn't do it for you

    This is the one I use, its from souldier straps.
    Been with me for 3 years and fully functional / looking new.

    If you like the style, I fully recommend.

    I just got one of his Amp'd series. It's sooooo nice! He's really making some sweet straps.

    Here's some of my others from Brad/Well Hung.

    Anybody try Italia Straps? They pretty much own the Vendor Classified section here.....

    I'm not looking to change, the ClipLock system is awesome, I was curious about a vendor that never seems to get replied to.

    Yep, I was in brazil and imported it through normal mail. Luckily, I payed no tax over it.

    Those guys used to have many models in that celtic, maladala, indian, idk style. Good luck on your search!

    Funny I was going to post a new thread about SGs and straps. I used to have to extend my strap with my old leather belt with my SG just to get it the acceptable side of McCartney. And am not that tall. Thanks for the links!

    For my SGs, I use a Jodi Head Hootnanny in this fabric style (#4):

    Agile AD-201. Kurt has some right now in a great natural/amberish/TVY finish. An AGF member just posted some real pics of his. Great necks, light, & very MMish looking. The off white have been mia for awhile.


    Here's what I've been considering.
