Martin Pryce Leather Artisan

This guitar strap is a copy in leather and suede of a strap that was used by Jimi Hendrix and was given to David Gilmour on his 60th birthday. Since then I have been commissioned to carry out some restoration work on David's original Jimi Hendrix strap. The strap measures 52.5" from end to end, giving you about a 50", from hole to hole measurement. There are eight crosses on the front and five crosses on the back. Just before the top cross on the back is a small plectrum pocket. The strap is adjustable by threading the end of the strap through the slot in the leather and fastening it to one of three press studs on the back of the strap.
