"METAL MANIA" and said "If God played guitar then Bob made his strap"
Thanks Scott your #1
Jeff H. from Westminster, Md.
Custom ordered a Duane Allman Tribute strap called
"SKYDOG" nicknamed after Duane...his comments when he
received it... This is the most comfortable strap I have ever had
across my shoulder, truly one of a kind and glad it belongs to me.
Jeff then ordered strap #2 called "STONEY CREEK" where the
idea came from a pair of his wife's boots. Jeff came back for #3
called "SKYDOG" with calf hair on, and strap #4 was "RANGE RYDER".
Here it what he had to say when he received them.. "These straps
looked so good in the photos you sent but I can't believe how
GREAT they are in person". Jeff again with #5 a custom strap called
"BLUEZ RYDER" a SRV Tribute...he said, Hi Bob.. Well you did it again!!!
This strap is just what I wanted. When I go to the local music store
I just smile when I walk by the rack that holds the guitar straps.
The ones in the store are sad and thin...
Guess what, yes Jeff did it again, he ordered his 6th custom strap
called the "J-BYRD" very cool... and he said.. I love the strap!
I believe this is my favorite. Thanks for the GREAT job.
I may have to do some more 3" straps in the future.
Strap #7 & #8 was a matching pair of 3" wide black leather straps
with a "J" embroidered on one and a "C" on the other, named
"SLASH BAR C" and "SLASH BAR J".
As a foot note, to Thank Jeff for giving us the idea of the
original SKYDOG strap, and purchasing many more custom straps from us,
we have designed and built a strap called "BOOT LEGGER" and
shipped it to him as a gift from "GUITSTRAPPED"
Michel J. lives in the Netherlands and bought a cool strap named "JU-JU"

it is just unbelievably beautiful! The craftsmanship that has
gone into this strap is absolutely sweet. I have to tell you Bob...
if there was a "HALL OF FAME" for strap builders I would for sure
induct you!!! The leather, like you said "is to die for". The feathers
are just too cool and then comes the black fringe at the end!
The feathers are "right on" the mark! Owning a strap like this
has been a "dream of mine for many years and you have made one
of my dearest dreams come true"! Thank you my friend...
I really don't know how you could top this one, but you know....
"I'll be back again"! Jackson. True to his words Jackson is back

at what you do.. You are the God of guitar strap makers.

craftsmanship, it is definitely appreciated. Tom S.
As a footnote:
Tom purchased a total of 26 straps over the years, when he
received #24 we decided to surprise Tom with a beautiful
embroidered denim strap "INDEPENDENCE DAY" with #25
written on the inside, Tom has said some very wonderful things
about the straps he has purchased from GUITSTRAPPED over the years,
I just want to share a couple of his quotes.
The black on white music notes, the reversibility, notes on the back
a mirror image of those on the front, this is pure genius.
I am glad that I own this "mistake".
It's about as much of a mistake as the MONA LISA!!!
The second of these quotes is, So,.. just imagine how I felt
as I opened the package of multiple straps I just received from Bob,
not rushing, but savoring every moment as I slowly opened and
experienced all these straps one by one and then all laid out
before me, and then looking around the room to where I had all
my other straps adorning my many guitars. "I now have an idea
of how they must have felt upon opening up KING TUT'S tomb
and being in that room with all the treasures and artistry before them.
From Bob & Diana.. Thank you, Tom!!!
Matt S. of Pasadena, Md.
Matt ordered a custom made strap.. the "MAJESTIC MAPLE LEAF"...
his comment is very long but very worthy of sharing...
BOB, Just as you'd promised, my strap was waiting for me
when I got home. We had some showers today, but not to worry,
the packaging would have withstood a hurricane!!! As I'm sure
you hear all the time, pictures could never do this strap any
justice. It is criminally gorgeous, the stitching, materials,
rolled seams, all top quality.
The most striking part however is the story behind it all.
It amazes me that it is still possible in this day and age to find
a craftsman who works as hard as you did to make sure a customer
is getting exactly what they envisioned. The ideas, samples,
and emailed photos are a lesson to any business in how to get
the customer satisfaction thing right.
It was really enjoyable to watch the whole thing come together
from ideas to finished product. The certificate of authenticity
was a class touch a well. But I'll tell you Bob, the real proof is
when you look at the other straps out there. I looked at my
2 others and I see huge stamping machines cutting out the leather,
I didn't have a say in picking, not to mention the rows of machine
stitching.... there's just no soul there. To put it bluntly, I have
looked at straps from top strap makers of the world and I am
over joyed I got out of the mass produced market. I may not be
a headliner yet, but I feel like one!!!
In closing, I think the coolest thing about the entire process
is that I have quite a story to tell when asked where I got my strap.
Thank you so much, I LOVE it, sincerely, Matt "
