Guitar Strap Script Series

Guitar Strap Script Series

Personalized Guitar Straps - Script Series

Some of the more time consuming but very original looking are our script series personalized guitar straps. After the undyed tooling leather is cut from the hide, it is dampened with water. Lettering is then hand drawn onto the leather for a reference from your choice of several different font styes. Then the intense hand work begins by stamping with a tiny textured hand tool and a mallet all around the outline of the lettering. This requires hundreds and hundreds of taps with our rawhide mallet. It appears that letters are raised but it is actually the background around the lettering that is debossed.

If you want the personalized lettering to stand out against the strap color, we take professional leather dye and an artist's brush to carefully dye around the perimeter of each letter being careful not to get any on the monogram. The rest of the leather guitar strap is then dyed, conditioned with oils and polished.

Each custom guitar strap is made to your order specifications. Other ways of customizing the strap include scripted crosses for Christian guitar strap themes, music notes embossed and or decorative metal conchos attached. The custom leather guitar straps can be made to several longer lengths than the most popular standard length that adjusts up to 52 inches.

The underneath side of the custom guitar strap can be the natural unded color or we can give it that extra cadilac look with a soft garment leather lining. For those musicians that require padding to make it a bit more comfortable when playing at long gigs can request for to add a foam rubber padding under the soft lining. Western music musicians might prefer a sheepskin padding in the shoulder area of their personalized guitar straps.

In the following video, watch many styles of our custom guitar strap being crafted in our leather shop.

Most of out handmade guitar straps have the option to be lined with a soft leather and foam padded. See some of our foam padded guitar straps being made in the following video.

Our script series guitar straps are extremely labor intensive to emboss the lettering and designs. A tiny stamp tool is tapped with a mallet many hundreds of times to deboss the leather surrounding the letters or design that you want to look raised and stand out. See some of this handwork done in the following personalized guitar strap video.
