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.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

      Fender makes two "grades" of these straps, with the other version being about a third less expensive. I can also tell you the economy version IS not what used to come in every single G&G case with a new Fender instrument inside. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL; is high quality with natural suede padding on the underside to prevent slippage, and compares to the factory originals of Gretsch and Rickenbacker from back in the 50's and 60's. It's a very long strap, and even though I have 37" sleeve length arms, I still had to add one more hole, 2" further up on the strap to get the length I like to play at. If you are uncomfortable with doing this yourself, take it to a good shoemaker/repair and ask them.

          Very nice strap with the exception that it apparently is made for taller player as after adjusting it to the last setting, it was still not enough to bring the guitar up to a playable position for me as I am average height at best. However, I just put another hole where I needed one and it works just fine. Goes great with my 60's American Strat!

              Love the discreet fender logos on the shoulder pad and buckle. I am using it on my Left Handd Hofner violin bass and it looks and functions perfectly. Sir Paul would be proud.

                A very long strap that would work well for tall, fat person, or wearing guitar at knee levels. I had to cut off a lot so I could wear it up high like Buddy Holly. It is too cool looking, makes me feel so hip, it even makes my guitar sound better. What more could you want? A+++

                  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.
