    New in the Well-Hung StrapLab today, after much pursuit by gear scientists across the universe, I proudly get to announce the long-awaited unveil of the anti-gravity guitar strap - you can tell all your friends you saw it here first. Below is a guitar hanging by the front strap button alone (a bee-yu-ti-ful Well-Hung oversize strap button, by the way ((available in my reverb shop)) - don't try this at home folks!), the tail end attached to... well nothing at all, able to freely swing in mid-air!

    This is strap so with so much traction on your shoulder, it openly defies the laws of nature as well as inviting developer/inventor use of over-the-top hyperbole. LOL!

    Made of recycled tires, married to good leather ends. The tire tread motif also gives the body of the strap a nice little shock absorbing effect, about 1-1.5" of springy give, the tail end has a bit of give also, just enough. Pretty darn comfy. Still testing, prototyping, but it's rather cool and interesting.

    SG owners rejoice... hope is on the horizon!

    Can you post a pic of a bunch of straps in one shot. I need something to match a goldtop and a my greco LP. Something classy for the GT (something Joe B. would wear, if he was actually cool) and something equivocal to a southern U.S mullet for this Greco. Tthe fact the guitar is not M.I.A takes it to the next level - do you have anything in confederate flag?

    a nice creamy and brown python print would be nice on the teaburst also - I have these in stock right now waiting to be strapified

    Also, look in my store for straps called Matrika Gold, and LoserHide

    I think one of those sweet Tweed straps would be just about perfect on my AO 50s Tele. Just gotta wait for the tax returns to come through...

    Mashing things up a bit in the Well-Hung StrapLab. A mutation of the Neil Young Peace Dove guitar strap with brown leather, fender tweed and the happenin' hippy patches.

    A new friend from TGP asked me to make him a couple of straps this week...

    [​IMG]

    Firstly, he must be preparing for a winning auction bid coming soon on a certain black on black strat. My sixth Hendrix/Gilmour... Then, an interesting new challenge... a strap that looks like a Brazilian Ju-Jitsu black belt... (only it's about an inch wider and padded). Included was his "tribal" particulars (for lack of a better term) via embroidery and colour printing in a piece of canvas. A very unique and personal strap.

    Hope he likes them or I might get my ass kicked!

    Amplify your Vintage boho hippy cred by a factor of four with a Well-Hung Groove Power beaded guitar strap.

    Basically, it's armourclad. Not the way to go if you need to reduce weight from your rig. But, if you'd like a little protection from random sword swinging stage-crashers,
    could save your life.

    This morning I completed another Well-Hung Hendrix Gilmour guitar strap for to be featured at Stang Guitars in Edmonton, will delivering it next week. Hope I can escape that beautiful G.A.S. station without buying anything - gonna be super tough. I've made about ten of these now, this is the best one yet. They are a bit of a mind-bender due to how they adjust. I put a series of snaps on the inside lining, to make it go from about 46 to 53 or so safely. I have no idea how the original strap adjusted but I think it may have had something to do with the X-lacing system because it was unlined. I had a 60's bobby lee strap for a while that was kind of like that, you had to unlace and re-lace it all up to adjust it. This is about About 2.7" wide padded and lined, so no taking apart and relacing LOL! You will not see or feel the laces the way I build these, unlike most other replicas.

    I'm about 1/2 into another one for my reverb store, should finish in the next day or two, it will be pretty much identical.

    This morning we completed a couple of interesting straps that I call the Well-Hung "Stingray"

    [​IMG]

    really interesting textured pattern, in a heavier vinyl, with serious leather ends. 3" wide, ultra padded. You'll go "Ahhhhhh!" Also, couldn't help but take a quick pic of my current strapwall, it changes daily, but I in good shape! Too good! Some of these may not be listed but all are waiting to be adopted by suitable folks who need to be Well-Hanged :D

    The problem with most so-called "tooled" straps advertised by big makers is they are so obviously fake.Running your leather through rollers or big presses is not "tooling" it's called embossing and if you say different in your advertising you are not truth-telling. Sad. I am of the opinion that a "tooled" strap should actually be made with tools and a hammer, and be a work of art, something singular, unique and special - not cloned two or three thousand times a month.

    For real vintage feelz and earthy spirit, the tiny imperfections hours and hours of hand-tooling is the only way to get an authentic look and feel.

    not really Well-Hung straplab related, but working with a group of fellas in another online community regarding a "community designed" DC special type guitar.
    The are in contact with a reputable name brand importer, who seems responsive, as long as we can come up with a design that won't land him in cease and desist territory.
    A lot of discussion about different styles, Collings, Hamer, Dillion etc. Even the Washburn Falcon and Yama SG styles have been discussed, (both which I like!).

    Don't know if this would pass muster with the lawyers, but my submission was to simply take the classic look, and repeat bottom horn on the topside.
    Another person asked for the same kind of deal but top horn repeated. So I swung into action with the photo manipulation, so we could weigh and measure.

    Still favor the shorthorn version over the longhorn. In fact, the more I look at it, the more the classic version begins to look wonky against the shorthorn.

    Interested in your thoughts.

    New in the straplab today, a set of three Dark Cowboys.

    Had this vinyl kicking around from an amp recover project a few years ago. Never made straps because of the generic brown colour.
    Hit some of it with some fiebings pro leather dye this weekend, and WOW it just comes to life!

    Set of three progressively darker Well-Hung guitar straps now looking for new homes, below is the darkest one.
