Look, I know it's difficult to trust a review that is all 10's, but seriously, you should buy this strap. It is very solid, has real leather ends, is fully adjustable and it is just a great all around strap. Yeah, I know that it's only a solid black strap, but it is VERY high quality. However, if you are looking for something that is "pretty," this is not the strap for you. It's black, that's all. It does the job, at a great price, and it feels like a high quality product. Enough reading already, go buy one.
I got the Dunlop D-38 guitar strap a gift. I thought that it was probably just some cheap, crappy strap that I would probably wind up throwing away or giving to another guitarist that was just starting out. Then, after waiting two weeks for it while it was on backorder, I finally got the strap. I could hardly believe the quality of this strap. (Although, I should have known better than to bet against Jim Dunlop.) The strap is made of heavyweight material, has thick leather tabs on the ends and is easily adjustable. I was expecting to throw this strap in the garbage, but it became my main strap!
I have had this strap for about six months now and have yet to have any problems. It still looks as good as the day it was delievered and the leather ends show no signs of wear. I do use strap locks on the ends, though, so that may have something to do with it.
When I ordered a set of JD straplocks, I got this strap as a freebie. You can't beat free. If it were lost/stolen, I would actually pay to get another one. Yeah, it's that good.

I bought this strap mostly because I thought it looked cool, and had seen a lot of pros use it. But I gotta say I was very disapointed. And the so called "Comfort Edge webbing" on it sucks. It makes it feel rough and uncomfortable on your shoulder. At least my shoulder. So overall, I was really dissapointed...

    Comments about Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap:

    This is the second strap I have purchased. The other is on a heavy 12 string acoustic ; and this one is on a heavy acoustic/electric bass. They are easy to adjust, hang nicely and are comfortable on the shoulder. Good quality for a good price.

      Comments about Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap:

      Very heavy duty, high quality leather ends, guaranteed to last a lifetime. A lot of people are complaining about the stiffness of the ends. It's a high quality strap. That's what you get. If the ends are flimsy enough to go right on and come right off, it's a junk strap. This is not. Also, people complain about the stiffness of the strap material itself. Once again, this is a high quality strap. When you get it, throw it in the washer and dryer with a load of towels. Problem solved. If I could have given it more than 5 stars I would have.

          Comments about Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap:

          I'm a very large man and it is hard to find a good quality extra long strap for a reasonable amount of cash.

          I bought one for my P-Bass so I could get it in a more comfortable position on gigs. I put it on and adjusted the length to where my bass was in the most comfortable playing position and the strap didn't slip or slide all night and I found it extremely comfortable to wear. My back and shoulders are usually killing me after a five hour gig, but since I got this strap and have the bass positioned where it should be on my body, my pain has gone away.

          I now have these on my other guitars and basses. Best bang for the buck in a strap today. Good job, Dunlop!

              My son plays the guitar and banjo. He had only one strap for his electric guitar and switched it to his bass, when needed. I purchased this very reasonably priced strap so he wouldn't have to keep switching. Arrived on time and very good quality.

                Comments about Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap:

                My straps were wearing thin and getting to be quite uncomfortable, so I ordered one of these after hours of shopping and sifting thru thousands of straps. I figured Dunlop hasn't let me down yet, so, why not...
                They are a bit stiff at first, and a it's a bit difficult to put strap locks on, but, they break in quick. I used it for 2 nights and ordered one for my other guitar when I got home from the show.

                  Comments about Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap:

                  Had read some negative reviews concerning discomfort and instrument droppage before purchasing. I have found neither to be completely true. I wear my guitar for hours at a time and have yet to drop my guitar even without locks. As for discomfort, it is rubber. Of course, it will be stiff at first, but after a few hours of stage-lite heat and sweat, it will conform to the position you hold your guitar in. It is much more comfortable than even a top quality nylon and doesn't begin to smell bad like leather.

                  Comments about Dunlop D-38 Solid Guitar Strap:

                  this is a plain-jane strap that does everything you need a strap to do--hold up your guitar without any surprises. the strap material and end patches are thicker than any similar generic straps i have seen. you may even have to struggle a little to get the end patches over your guitar strap buttons, but once on, this strap isn't coming off. sure, you could spend just as much money for a cheesy strap that will drop your guitar, or a lot more for a strap that makes a statement, but I prefer to think that people are listening to me because they like my music, not because I have a trendy strap. this strap has gone from guitar to guitar, and is still going strong. Congratulations, Jim Dunlop, for another quality product.

                  The only problem I have encountered is that the strap is so solid that it doesn't fit into the hard-shell cases of my 12-string SG or my banjo, but that's Gibson's fault. Fender and other cases are no problem.
                  this is a solid strap, with a non-scratching nylon buckle and thick leather-like ends to slip over your guitar strap buttons. it comes in every color as long as you want black.
                  this strap is sturdier than any other 2" nylon strap I have ever seen. it won't stretch, pull lloose, or take a nosedive because the ends wriggled off your guitar strap buttons.
                  I have never seen anything like it for the price, which is minimal.

                      Great strap - leather is tough to work with and doesn't give much, but if you want the strap to stay, that's a good thing. I have a total of 12 of these currently. I keep them on my guitars/basses so I do not have a lot of play in the leather. I trust them with my most expensive, and I treat my guitars better than my kids - so that says a LOT!

                      This is a heavy-duty strap of good construction. The leather ends are tight and provide a strong and confident hold on the guitar. It's long enough to hang the guitar around your knees, if you so desire. The downside is that the strap is so heavy that it's hard to stuff in the case and the leather ends are so secure that it can be a struggle to put on and take off. It almost seems better suited for a bass guitar.

                                  This is my second guitar strap. I use this with my Fender Tele and it fits well. It's strong, comfortable around the shoulder, easy to adjust and sits well... not too high, nor to low.

                                          Having used straps ranging from the expensive leather to the cheap $5.99 thin nylon ones, this is on the high end of the nylon ones imo. The nylon has an almost padded feel, it`s thick and strong. Yet the feel of it is soft with rounded edges, something the 'el-cheapos' lack. The stitching where the leather ends attach is good. No worries of it coming apart jeapardising your guitar. I`d use this strap on any of my most expensive guitars without worry.

                                          After experience with leather straps I prefer a good nylon one as you can wash them. Leather straps stink after a while(sweat). Plus nylon ones don`t stick to whatever you`re wearing like leather ones can. No problem using aftermarket strap locks on the ends.

                                          Not too much to comment on a guitar strap, I think I covered what matters. I`d highly recommend this one as it may be the best nylon one I`ve ever bought. Costs a little more than a cheapo but this is a good one. This is the strap I`ll buy from now on whenever I need a new one. I have 20 guitars and seems like I lose one from time to time (or someone steals).

                                            All of my basses and guitars have this strap. It's very durable, reasonably comfortable, and it never changes length due to slipping or stretching. I've had one on a bass for 5 or 6 years and it's in roughly the same shape as the one I put on a guitar this weekend.

                                            The strap is a little stiff at first, but it loosens up after you've used it for a while. The leather on the ends is very stiff at first, so it's pretty difficult to put the strap on initially. It's also hard to take off for a while. If you use hard cases and have to remove the strap, that's a serious con. I prefer gig bags and leave the strap on, so I consider it a pro. I don't need straplocks because this thing isn't coming off.

                                            If you DO have to take the strap off a lot, it gets easier to take off over time. The first one I had did so, but never got so loose that i felt like I should have straplocks.

                                            Much thicker than the rest without being too stiff. Looks great, you can pay more for less quite easily. The leather ends in particular are of higher quality than what I've seen on other straps. I'm ordering my 2nd one today. It would be nice if they could offer a few color choices while keeping the same material and quality, but as long as you're happy with black this strap is one of the best you can buy without going quite a bit higher in price.
