    Lol, I have only played it sitting down so far, neck dive isn't really a problem though as I use a leather strap. Man, there is just something about the feel of a Gibson! ….and that smell! I showed my 3 year old and had him smell it and then he went around smelling all the rest of my guitars :rofl:

    I didn't think I'd like the locking Grovers on my 2018 Standard - wrong! They make string changes SO fast and sure. Very nice.

    How do you like the Dean Gran Sport?
    I've heard some people knock 'em as an ugly SG knockoff but I've always thought they looked fine. Kinda like the Guild sS100.

    Available at Sweetwater and probably any music gear web site. It's called 'The Gibson Classic Leather Guitar Strap."

    The most expensive strap I ever bought - $75 - but it is the best strap I ever bought. So supple and comfortable. Did I enjoy spending 75 bucks for a guitar strap? Certainly not. All the straps I own (mostly the vintage spaghetti strap style) run about 30 bucks. But the extra dough I spent on this Gibson leather strap sure was worth it. I actually enjoy using it. Who would think you can say that about a guitar strap?

    I've been looking for that exact strap for a while. Still haven't seen one in stock anywhere. I'll have to check online. Only question I have has to do with it's load bearing ability. A few months back i picked up a similar style strap made by a different company. Looked beautiful, wasn't inexpensive. Only problem was any guitar in the 8+ pound range felt like it was hanging from a bungee cord. There was like 3 inches of travel that was all from the strap stretching and that made me uncomfortable. How does this one hold up to the more standard fabric style straps?
