Guitar strap, "Copy of Famous Jimi Hendrix Leather Guitar Strap" by Martin Pryce 

In March 2006 I was asked by David Gilmour to make a guitar strap for his  friend Phil Manzenera. I delivered the strap to David at The Mermaid Theatre where he was performing for Radio 2 featuring music from "On An Island". It was Davids birthday and that day he had been presented with the famous original Jimi Hendrix guitar strap ! The strap required some restoration work which I later carried out for him. David subsequently commissioned me to make several other leather guitar straps like the one you can see in the picture.
