Most of us have a lot of guitars to choose from. Some of us have spend lots of money on upgrades. But do we also buy that special strap to match that precious guitar?
I personally own 11 guitars and have 7 straps. Some are handmade or special order. I like Eyeland Enterprises straps for quality & design.
How many do you have?

i tend to use one strap per guitar, as if you're constantly taking them on and off it eventually wrecks the bit where it attaches to the strap button and ends up being a false economy as you have to buy a new one anyway.

i like those dangleberry music ones in italian leather- really good quality, and very good value (around ?15-?20).

I have one per guitar. Most are cheaper Levy's but one is a nice suede leather that I got in Tokyo for the LS-150. Wide strap, nice and thick. Makes it feel like it's only 9lbs! I think the brand is Orono or something.

I have one in each case; hate to be fumbling around looking for a strap. Plus my old Buddy Lee straps from back when. Still like them, but I don't like the metal adjusters.

Crap! I've only got one strap in total and it's about 20 years old.
It's just never occurred to me that I should buy more.

If I ever used more than one guitar in a gig I would of course have another strap, but I rarely bother to use more than one guitar at a time.

I like Jodi Head straps. There's 6 or 8 of those around the house, couple cheap ass straps too. My girl and me own 14 pcs electric and 2 acoustics, we own maybe 10 straps...
I need a couple like this;

I like Jodi Head too, I also have one laying around. Been eyeballing at one of those Eldorado's for some time now. This is my Eyeland strap:
