This guitar strap is a replica of the strap Jimi Hendrix wore at the Isle of Wight Festival 3 weeks before his death. It is the same guitar strap that David Gilmour's wife bought him for his 60th birthday at a Sotheby's Auction. The strap has faded to brown and we believe the original skinny brown lacings were replaced with beige suede lacings. The extra shoulder piece Jimi had has seemed to have disappeared before David Gilmour came to own it. Jimi wore the strap shorter than David does, so 2 of the X lacings fold up the back on this version, so it is created to your length, to look exactly as Jimi's did when he wore it. The David Gilmour custom version of this strap is created to look the way it does when David wears it.
This guitar strap is hand-crafted with purple suede, brown lacings and a brown leather tip in the front. The colors of suede has not changed much since Jimi owned this, so we believe this is exactly the color he owned.
There's only 4-5 inches of adjustability in this guitar strap, so we must create it to your specific length. The length you supply us with will be the middle measurement, and you'll have a couple of inches on either side of that measurement for adjusting.
