I've been wanting to make a Clarke Guitar Strap for years, but the layout never seemed to work. Then one day I saw a picture of Mike Doughty fixing his blue plaid tie, and it hit me. So, here is my Clarke Guitar Strap in my version of plaid. This one is in red, orange, yellow, and antique black.

The strap adjusts from 45 to 58 inches, and is 2.5 inches wide. Because of the adjustment of this strap, it can be used for a guitar, bass, banjo or dobro! There are strap pin holes at each end, and I will include some leather lace so that you can attach it to your instrument if you don't have two pins (so, neck of dobro or bass, or for lacing it to the banjo).

I start with a tooling leather leather then cut, brand, paint, and dye it, and then apply a protective coat to keep it safe from the elements. Because I use a thick tooling leather, it will soften up quickly but maintain it's shape and will last for many years (I've seen ones 40 years old with life still left in them made from the same type of leather). All sides of the strap have been dyed and protected, too, so the dye won't redeposit on clothes or instruments.

I am happy to do custom orders - just ask!
