We found some this 30-year-old vintage deadstock army green vinyl in an old warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles and made a special run of these straps for a store in Japan. We put a few up on the site and a lot of people liked them, so decided to do another limited edition run. This heavier duty vinyl really stitched up well and the strap feels great in your hands and on your shoulder. If you want a really unique, fantastically made, limited edition strap for a really great pice then this could be it! This guitar strap has a timeless classic vintage look to it. It is very mod and reminds us of Speed Racer and Racer X.
By the way, the stadium pictures are of artist AM, of AM & Shawn Lee on a recent Ireland and UK tour. AM makes great retro pop and we enjoyed hearing him live on KRCW's legendary Morning Becomes Eclectic show in Los Angeles recently. Anyway, the basic design is based on the Ernie Ball type of guitar strap that dates way back to the 60's, but our version is vinyl, and improved by the long offset racing stripe that runs the length of the strap. The end tabs are made of 3 layers of auto, couch and marine upholstery vinyl and the inside piece is made with a super- strong, fiberglass reinforced, vegan power pad material that lets you rock cruelty free. The back tab has 3 hand-tooled stainless steel rivets holding it together. So strong and oh it looks so good! No leather guitar straps here!
It’s a great boyfriend or girlfriend gift idea for the musician in your life. Compare this vinyl vegan guitar strap to knockoff companies who have copied our racing-stripe recently and feel even better about what you get for what you pay here, plus, you'll know your strap is a Couch, made in USA, Cruelty Free, vegan, sweatshop free and worn by the best musicians in the world.
