After playing guitar for 20 years, you come to appreciate having a great guitar strap. I’d played long enough with bad straps that cut into my shoulder or have uncomfortable adjustment fittings cutting into my back that I thought I’d share this.
A few years ago I contacted Torry at Red Monkey Designs to make me a strap. What I got was amazing.
A 3-inch wide leather strap, custom measured for my height and where I hold my guitar. It’s the exact strap that Torry makes for Zakk Wylde. The second I put this on, I knew it was going to help my back and shoulder.
Typically I play a Les Paul, so weight was definitely a consideration for me when choosing a strap. The problem is, nothing could hold the guitar and keep me comfortable for long periods of time, until I got this one.
I’ve told everyone from big name guitarists to the guy down the street about these straps. Now I’m telling you. Get one, you won’t regret it.
I’ve been using this guitar strap for about four years and wouldn’t trade it for anything.
For those that have seen pictures of my Zakk Wylde Black Label Society vest — Torry made that too. Of course, he makes them for Zakk and the band as well.
