If you play a guitar, any type of guitar, you need a strap. Why? Unless you’re sitting down, without something to hold it up they are impossible to play whilst standing. The thing is, as there are thousands to choose from, which one do you get? Quite honestly it’s all down to personal preference. A licensed one (when I last looked there were at least 25 Beatles straps available), a patterned one, a plain one, a leather one, a polyester one and a multitude of others are available. I plumped for this Van Gogh ‘Starry Night’ strap simply because it compliments my Chicago Blue Epiphone ‘56 Les Paul Standard Pro.
With an extendable length to a maximum of 68 inches, this polyester strap will be suitable for any guitar. It also comes with two plectrums, one matching the strap theme and the other being Van Gogh’s ‘Twelve Sunflowers’ painting, and a pocket in which to keep the spare. In addition are the two rubber grommet strap locks, which will stop the strap from inadvertently becoming loose as you thrash around on your axe. It’s a nice width too and it doesn’t cut into your shoulder. There's a leather tie for attachment to the neck of an acoustic.
One to consider.
