Nice, soft leather, and the padding does what it is supposed to do. As for function, it is top notch.
The stitching is extremely sloppy and looks like a strap that was made at 4:59PM on a Friday leading into a long weekend. My $15 suede strap I bought at a big-name music store 10 years ago looks much better. I'm sure there was CNC stitching involved in my mass-produced strap, but it is virtually cosmetically perfect.
For the money, I was expecting better attention to detail. I gave it away to someone still using a cheap nylon strap and won't buy another.
I have a few of these straps - and they are all my favorites. They are seriously awesome ! Great material and so comfortable for lots of play time.
The Long Hollow strap I recently purchased from Shoreline is one of the best guitar straps I've ever used. Looks great and is super comfortable. This thing is going to last a very long time!
What can I say - these are the best straps. I have one on each of my 7 acoustic guitars, they are extremely comfortable and also look great. Superb quality, which will last forever.
High quality comfortable strap. I have a newer Taylor guitar with the massive strap pins and it is able to fit over them comfortably after a couple of uses. Comfortable for long gigs and looks great on my guitar. At this price point the strap is definitely worth your time.
