Over at the Les Paul Forum, a member posted a strap made by Rachael Becker of Heavy Metal Leather. All straps are handmade and her work is amazing! I ordered this one, called the "Magic Mushroom." What other guitar could I possibly put it on?

I've always used Moody straps for my Alembics because of the width and quality of the leather. They are a bit on the plain side, though. So if you're looking for something with a little more flair, I highly recommend Rachael. I'm having her make something special for my new Alembic which is in the works.

Enjoy...

Nice strap, but what does it cost? I realized looking at this that I haven't paid for a strap in about thirty years( through luck and working in the pawnshop for 14)so I have NO IDEA what a good strap costs these days...Tony.

There's a cool little company in California
(sound familiar? :-)) .

I got one for festivus, I might get a matching wallet .

I like how the brass on your new strap echoes the pup rings.

That SYF custom strap is awesome! It really pops with the Omega Buckeye Burl custom Alembic 6!
