Made this guitar strap thinking I would gild the treble clef. After several failed attempts I just resorted to painting it with Jacquard gold acrylic paint. Still looks good, but I wish the gilding would have worked...

I don't have a guitar, so no 'action pics'.

nice work. is this the first guitar strap you have made? I like the simplicity of this type of strap build but have been unsure about what type to make for myself.

Thanks.
Actually this is the second strap for me, the first one is posted below.
If I was making one for myself I would probably make a fixed size 'one strap only' unless I was changing guitars a lot.

thanks for the tip. I need to also do a mandolin strap and I think a non adjustable one would work well for the smaller size. BTW I like your first one also. the finish looks great on it.

Thanks again. Yes the finish is nice on that one, I went for a gritty look for the skulls and they were hard to make so that they don't look too identical.
