    And, because it's F-hole friday, why not some vintage German pr0n?

    new off the line, came to me in a dream... the Fender Twin Shakey LOL!

    [​IMG]

    I wonder if I am the only guitar forum guy in the world who doesn't own a beat to shit black LP? So, the blushing bride will have to do LOL!
    My Shakey "collection" at least until I can get them adopted to new owners. Had a blue denim on black one too, but it sold off. It was super hot.

    Fresh off the bench last night... Black Gold Paisley being modeled by my Hamer Golden Wolf refin

    ultimately this sweet strap should be properly destined for a Black Beauty/Fretless wonder type thing... if the planets align properly

    today I finished "Prince Oberyn" - decadent, doesn't care what you think, rather full of himself, and secretly pretty darn badass.

    Today I am getting close to completion on The Red Witch.

    Gotta be like a million glass beads in this thing. Wearer will be magically infused with a destiny for stardom, saw a vision of it in the flames. Or maybe... it was a burning marshmallow? Not quite sure.

    Yesterday, I completed some new Genocide straps out of the new embossed lamb leather. It feels great, but it's so soft that
    when I make straps out of it, it loses a bit of the skull emboss. When I put it all together, they are more subtle in the skull and bones
    showing on this all leather version. Subtle is cool too. Three in three different shades here, all Metal AF.

    This morning the Straplab was briefly repurposed into a T-shirt lab after yesterday afternoon's arrival of some new logo transfer thingamabobs. Few months ago I found a a buch of x-large sky blue tees at a great price in a clearance store, so I picked them up with ordering some promo transfers in mind. Those who have purchased Well-Hung know I can be generous with bonus surprise swag.

    Heated up the iron, put on some sweatshop tunes, and rocked out a whole bunch of them.

    [​IMG]

    They have the nice fitted neck and are pretty nice shirts considering they were blowing them out.
    Going to keep one for myself, throw a few to the some local guitar stores, another to a player I want to reward locally.

    [​IMG]

    All others are now fair game, one bonus sky blue Make Any Guitar Awesomer tee for to anyone who picks up a strap in my reverb store at list price, while they last.

    Tonight we are patiently trying to train a Whiskey Croc to "stay" on this tobacky strat. These crocs are super badass and don't listen too good.

    Elvis in his '69 Comeback Special. Cash at Folsom. Hendrix at Woodstock. These three musical legends all shared one common accessory.
    The Saugerties patterned guitar strap. Can't say if it was the funky pattern itself making those moments pivotal in musical history, but I wouldn't bet against it. This stuff obviously has some deep voodoo connection, perhaps it's the very leash of the Devil himself on souls sold into success.

    Now you REALLY want one.

    There are a number of manufacturers making "reissues" sort of resembling the old Ace version discontinued after a couple years production, for general guitarist consumption in your local store. Skinny "starter pack" straps at best, ribbon simply mounted to poly webbing. That's not my style.

    I've been kicking around an idea to build a short run of vastly improved saugerties pieces in the Well-Hung way for maybe a year or so. My aim is to give this strap ultimate comfort, build it longer and stronger to last. Won't be stopping at weak 2" wide ribbon only like the original, or reissues either. I'm taking this timeless retro pattern and mounting it to 3" wide deep, dark black leather. Can't stop there, even though it costs me more leather, I'm rolling the edges for comfort, and will also be putting plenty of my sweet, sweet padding in the shoulder area.

    You got a vintage guitar that needs real vintage mojo and historic gear cred? I daresay this strap might be the envy of all who see it. These are going to be so cool, gonna make four only, I think... probably keep one for myself. Working on these right now, coming soon to Reverb.

    EDIT first one is complete. Will be archived into my personal collection.

    [​IMG]

    Also hosted a visit to my shop by Bob and his wife linda who drove up here all the way from Lloydminster, (nearly two hours),
    to come pick out a strap

    [​IMG]

    And a tune! (Up the Lazy River).



    [​IMG]

    also put up a few of my brand new and beautiful design - Saugerties Deluxe: "The Devil's Leash" on Reverb. Go read up to find out more.

    Found an effective way to get folks to stop dropping by my workshop.
    This week I am working on strap project: "Buffalo Bill."

    [​IMG]

    Can't say too much about it at this time, except that no shortage of lotion involved and the skin *hide* is extremely soft and supple, with a slightly rosy life-like glow.

    Finished a couple of strap experiments this morning.

    a grommet strap... in super soft grey/brown cowhide, with a little bit of marshall big check grill peeking out from inside the portholes...
    Don't ask about the Swarovski crystal fret markers on this old First Act abomination. I don't care to revisit that mod-of-nightmares.

    [​IMG]

    Speaking of nightmares, also completed "Buffalo Bill, made of now-silent lambs, the rosy young skin on this one is extremely soft and supple. So much so, it's much like, well, much like wearing a second skin. Figured my psycho-caster was appropriate to model this beautifully creepy human skin-coloured strap, but it looks really great on any newish maple fret-boarded guitar, and some others too. Probably real nice on a shell pink or rose gold strat too.

    a new one with chrome grommets on black leather. Gunmetal poly grillcloth inside the grommets for added interest.

    Tommy Iommi fan wants a strap for his evil black SG. A dark theme, even gothic, but not devilish, or skulls, crosses and flames, pentagrams etc. I pitched him on a Edgar Allen Poe theme... he dug it, and we move forward.



    ALLRIGHT NOW!!!! DUH DUH, dunnunuhhhh, du-nu-nu-nuh!
    An hour and a half of tappedy tap... we are moving along.... all to a project-suitable soundtrack which really
    helps me stay in the mindset and tap to the rhythm.

    [​IMG]

    Going to be an absolute biatch with the mottled fill in some places..., could I make things a little easier for myself??? Quoth the Raven.... NEVERMORE!

    [​IMG]

    These evil curves in the lettering and talons are going to really look great on an SG
