Sorry... I know it was a shameless post but yours reminded me of him. Now, tell me about the strap..... where did you get it? I have a similar one that's getting kind of tattered.

I use a cheapy strap. It has a shop's logo printed on it and was complementary in connection to a purchase.
Works fine.

I have tonnes of various straps laying around though cause I get so many from Japan with the guitars I buy.
All kinds from 70's Fender and Gibson to Fernandes, Greco, ESP etc.
Once a year I put my Japanese straps for sale (on my guitar show) and charge 2? a piece.

A mate of mine makes really nice straps: www.axlbelt.com

Sorry? No need for that. I think I expressed myself wrong in my previous post. I don?t find it shameless, it?s kind of a nice memoriam and I respect that. I think our pets are more important than a strap. I?m the one who has to apologize here, for giving you the wrong idea.

Nice to see my old thread up and running again

I was going to post myself for I'm really excited about the 3 straps I recently purchased from Cserni Custom Guitar Straps.
These are the most comfortable straps I've ever tried and sooo well made. Erv is also a great guy to deal with, please check his website (no affiliation ) : http://www.csernistraps.com/

Here's my straps (no worries, all MIJ guitars boys)

No worries....you didn't give me the wrong idea.... I saw the picture of Simon and thought to myself.... what the hell does my cat have to do with this thread.... No offense taken at all. Perhaps I'll start a thread in the General Discussion section on Tokai Forum member's pets.

Glad to hear it.
I know from experience that it can be difficult speaking and/or writing in another language. My North American friend (who lives in Belgium every half of the year) sometimes doesn?t understand or misinterprets me when I use a phraseology that?s customary in my region, or make a literal translation.

Probably pricey for non-EU members but it is sure worth to spend a few bucks extra on his little "invention".

I use schaller straplocks so I have 2 straps that I can use on any guitar as they all have the locking posts.
Found it good method when gigging as they never dropped off and I didn't need to remember extra straps. You can buy just the strap posts on ebay
