    i just got this black leather "deluxe vintage" Fender strap from MF a couple weeks ago (thanks again for the quick shipping guys!) and I gotta say, I like it. I needed a replacement for a (non-adjustable) Levy's strap of similar type which was just a couple inches too short. I'm about 6'1" and while I don't like my guitar all the way down to my knees, having the bridge in front of my hip usually feels right. The Levy's strap was starting to cause some cramping from having my hands at a weird angle, so I strapped it to my Talman acoustic (which is more comfortable higher up) and adjusted this new Fender strap's buckle out to its last hole. Perfect fit!

    I use this on an Ibanez XPT700XH, which despite being pointy has its strap buttons in standard electric-guitar locations. With the Fender strap it barely sits right where I want it (with the bridge in front of my hip), but I note that this strap isn't long enough to hang bigger-bodied instruments like Explorer- or V-shaped guitars this low; I have both and checked to see. Basses are likely to have the same issue. Just a reminder to account for how far apart the strap buttons are on your guitar, as well as your height and your preferred playing position, when you're looking for a leather strap; they'll stretch a couple inches if they're not broken in at the factory, but not too much. This one is perfect for this guitar, and should provide a similar ride for the "big 3" electric body shapes on people around 6' tall, but for a super-low ride with larger-bodied instruments I'd need something longer.


    I saw some other reviews mentioning the shoulder-pad, and I do think it's worth a comment since I noticed it too. The strap is not broken in at the factory, so the side of the shoulder-pad which contacts the shoulder was still rather stiff, scratchy and rough when it got here. The "padding" (if there's any in there, I don't see any) leaves a bit to be desired, but I'm probably feeling a little spoiled by the Levy's super-deluxe, foam-packed garment-leather shoulder-pad - perhaps I'll switch them until the Fender pad breaks in. Or maybe I'll just remember that leather needs to break in, recognize that this strap was a lot less costly than the Levy's, and tough it out like a proper metalhead until it softens up.

    I've also seen mention of the buckle, and being a little paranoid I gave it a few good hard yanks to see if breakage was likely to be an issue. I feel better about it now; mine has already withstood more abuse than it is ever likely to face on the road, in the studio, or anywhere else. I didn't hit it with a hammer, but then I don't see why it would ever take such a blow in the wild. If it did, AND if it broke, I'd probably still spend another $25 to replace it; I'm definitely not concerned that it's going to randomly just break loose and drop my guitar.

    So, it looks good without being tacky, holds up my guitar where I like it, and displays nothing to suggest that the product isn't worth the price. Good-quality leather, and once the shoulder-pad breaks in I expect it'll feel even better. Yes sir, I like it. I like it a lot.
    how many features should a strap have? really though, there is a limit to the adjustability range if you don't want to cut into it.
    the shoulder pad's "soft" side is kinda raw, but for new leather that's not unusual.
    just try to find this type, grade, length and thickness of all-leather strap for less! no really, try, and if you find one, let me know and i'll buy that one next time!

    Is very nice leather strap, the "Fender" lettering on it looks fantastic. Unfortunately it doesn't offer much of a variation in sizing, for me that I like the guitar just right about were my stomach is at (for playing comfort) it just didn't work, dunno if I'm too short (5'7)or if I'm just too picky...Maybe if it was available on diff sizes or just the option in it to resize it based on each players needs.

      Just what I was looking for. Cool vintage strap for my Gretsch. Nice and simple. Very reasonable price for a good quality leather strap. Sizing and adjustability are good for me (6'1" male).

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

      Great strap. Very Strong. Nice pad. Grips the neck strap buttons securely.

      I had to drill many more adjustment holes in the strap to accommodate my higher hung guitar style for when I play slide.

      It works and is worth every penny. Didn't mind the extra work to make it right for me.

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

        It is better than the strap that used to be included with Fender guitars. It is not a good idea to use this strap to support any Bass guitar for a long period of time, as in one set, as it is hard on the shoulder muscles. It does work well with guitars that are light in weight. Case candy, for the most part.

          Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

          I use these on accoustic guitars, because I don't like strap buttons on neck heels. These are much better than the Fender "Standard" version, which uses fluffy white packing material instead of suede on the underside of the shoulder pad. These are long, which is perfect. I use a Martin 18A0032 Guitar Leather Head Stock Strap Tie instead of the shoelace that the strap comes with.

            the strap is too long, even at the shortest setting. it is not functional at all for me, and i am an average sized player who likes to hold guitar at a comfortable and common position. i will attempt to return this item.

              I like this strap. I found it to be sturdy and fine for regular practice. Personally, I don't understand some of the negative reviews. This straps works and for the money it does what its suppose to do. In my opinion the quality is not bad at all. I plan to buy another one.

              Bought this for a bass. Not long enough for the position I like to play in. The workmanship was only 'so-so' for the 'deluxe' version. Would be fine for a guitar.

                  There's not much you can say about a strap. This one is made of cheap, stiff leather, but at this price point, what do you expect? It holds a guitar comfortably on my shoulder and looks great doing it, so I don't really care if it's premium leather or not. It was also very long on me (I'm 5'9" and don't like the guitar at my knees), but I cut it down a bit and punched in a few more holes and now it fits like a charm. It's a great looking strap at a fair price, which is exactly what I was looking for. I'd say go for it.
