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!

I expected this strap would be wider. It's about 3/4" wide, so I don't know if I'll feel safe using this strap. It doesn't seem that the ends will hold up to much taking off and on a guitar. The buckle and shoulder pad do look good, I just hope it holds up. I wouldn't have made purchase if I new is was this narrow.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

      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.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

      Excellant quality and quite inexpensive for a leather product. I did have to make the holes larger to get it over the strap lugs. Very comfortable shoulder pad and I had to punch new length adjustment holes to fit, but not a problem if you have the leatherworking tools.

      Narrow enough!

      By LittleOldLady

      from Pomona, CA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

      I ordered one of these when my odd-shaped guitar couldn't be fitted with a "normal" strap end. The strap button is placed in a spot where I have only a quarter-inch of wiggle room. Since the odd shape also prevents resting it on my lap, I need a strap any time I play it. This vintage style Fender strap does the job perfectly. The only problem is that I'm not only shorter than the guys that usually use them, but I like my instrument set high. Like another of these reviewers, I had to punch holes and cut off the excess. The design lends itself well to such savage manipulations. I had to toss over 8 inches of premium leather into the trash, but it lookes like it came this way!I agree that the pad is REALLY hard and stiff, so that's the only thing Fender could have done differently. A cushion of lambs wool, or whatever they cushion things with these days, would have made it perfect. Other than that, great job Fender!

      GREAT STRAP!

      from Pa

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

      Overall, I feel this a a very good quality strap that will hold your guitar, and look good doing it. The thickness of the leather, the finish is done very nice and it has a nice chromed buckle with the Fender logo. There is plenty of strap there to fit the big guys, and you can adjust it down to fit comfortable on a younger player.
      It has a nice comfy should pad thats has a slight curve to fit on your should and go around your neck with out getting that razor strap burn on your neck. It is fully adjustable with plenty of length to fit most everyone. I am an XL guy and I had to adjust it tighter from the original setting. The strap is all black on both sides, the under side of the shoulder pad is a lighter color of leather, but when its on you never can see that. There is a cheaper model, but I noticed it is only colored on one side. The pad appeared to be of lesser quality. I usually find I have trouble finding a strap that looks good,and of good build quality, but I found both here.
      It is a very good quality strap, not a thin cheapo like some of the others I had over the years. The strap it self is nice and thick and does not stretch, and it molds around your guitar straps after its on which makes me feel confident my guitar is not going to fall off. The buckle is nice chrome with the Fender logo on it, and appears to be of good quality, and not some cheap chromed plastic.
      For the price I think it's a great value. If your looking for the old school style strap for your guitar, this is the one to have.

      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.

        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.

            Its very rigid. Not traditional. Too long. Its one of those things you should def. try before you buy, or buy it and if you don't like it, give it to someone. I've had mine for a year. I took the pad off of it and just roll with the thin leather. I like it that way. It doesnt slide as much and I can feel my guitar... the pad makes it seem soooooo very light. (I play a gibson es-339.. not a heavy guitar)I've had to drill some holes in it, cut off excess and what not, but I would much rather it be way too long, then not long enough. I can cope with it.

            The only complaint I'd have with this is that I had to put in extra holes because I don't like playing with the guitar dragging around my knees, but other players may like playing that way. It's also a bit expensive. In general, this is a great version of the old style strap and it's my preference. This is one I use on all my guitars.

            Not Worth the $$

            By TMK

            from Manhattan, KS

            Comments about Fender Deluxe Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

            Having recently bought two Fender Reissue electric guitars, I thought this strap would be the perfect way to complete the vintage vibe. How wrong I was. The leather feels hard and cheap, not at all durable. The buckle is made out of such cheap metal that it actually looks like plastic. To make matters worse, the strap isn't even very comfortable, nor does it appear durable enough to entrust my $1000+ guitar with.To add insult to injury, last night I was watching Clapton's Hyde Park DVD, and guess what I saw? The Journeyman, old Slowhand himself, was using the cheap Ernie Ball generic black nylon strap on both his signature model Stratocaster and his very nice Gibson ES-335. The moral is that accesories don't mean a thing. If your axe is cherry, it doesn't matter what's holding it up. If your guitar is a POS, the strap isn't changing that. Too bad it took EC and a bunch of $ down the drain for me to learn that lesson.I am returning BOTH of these straps TODAY and investing in two good old Ernie Ball black nylon straps.

                    The shoulder pad does not stay on your shoulder.

                      A classic guitar strap design, nice leather at a very reasonable price. I have one for each Strat, P-Bass, U-Bass (discarded the pad and attached end to the headstock)
