In my 40 year career as a musician, I have had plenty of guitars and guitar straps. I use to own a guitar strap very similiar to this one decades ago, but unfortunately, I was stupid enough to let it go with a guitar I sold that it was on. I have always found the old school retro look the best for "any" guitar, even acoustics. I have several good quality wide leather guitar straps, and to be quite honest, other than being a bit flashy (not to mention annoyingly in the way) they just don't do it for me. I purchased this one in black, and I love it. It does exactly what it's suppose to do...hold my guitar up horizontally in front of me in a comfortable position. I play long sets, and with this nicely padded movable shoulder pad, I don't feel my Gretsch on my shoulder. I love the old school silver buckle, but I do have to be careful when I am putting the guitar back in the case, that the buckle rests on the strings and fret board of the guitar, not to damage the guitar body with a little scratch or ding..but that's not really an issue for me because I'm careful. I did add some gold colored strap locks to the strap, which makes it a breeze to unattach/attach the strap to the guitar, and it can be done is a split second. So you can go for flashy, wide, expensive guitar straps, or you can go for this simplistic retro looking strap that does a great job, and looks just aweseome. Sometimes, "less is more", and that defintiely applies here.

Just wanted a dupe of the strap that came with my Am Vintage Strat. A decent traditional rawhide strap works better for me & I hate strap locks. Alas, not the same strap. Material is about 1/2 the thickness on this one. Also, for most people the existing holes only let the guitar hang to the knees. Decided to keep it only because I had an awl & leather hole punch handy, so cutoff a bunch of the strap & punched a few new holes. Apparently the one to get would've been the deluxe one with Fender embossed on it (although my nice Am Vintage strap doesn't have that).

    Comments about Fender Standard Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

    leather is ok, not super hard, not super soft. Like the old ones from the '50's, '60's. surprisingly it's not uncomfortable with my 9 pound Gretsch. move the pad around till it's in the right spot. I like it. It's just like the less expensive ones of decades ago. Put strap locks on, and it's safe as can be.

        Comments about Fender Standard Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

        This is a GREAT STRAP. It really fits well and is very comfortable. Shoulder pad is great for my Heavy Vintage Les Paul and my Heavy Vintage Telecaster. I like the vintage tagged looking buckle on it too. I have bought 3 of these straps for different guitars. The oldest strap is 3yrs old and is not worn at all. Looking for a great vintage strap... Here it is.

        Perfect Fit For Me

        By Matthew Hylton

        from Glen Burnie, MD

        Comments about Fender Standard Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

        I like this guitar strap so much I had to buy 2. 1 for my electric & 1 for my acoustic. I have tried others but the straps where too wide and would dig into my neck. Since I am a large guy and have a weird shap to my shoulders & neck this thin vintage strap does the trick. I even removed the should strap and it feels so comfortable that I could play for hours, Thanks MF for carring this.

                The strap isn't that bad, I mean it works. My only issue is that it was waaaay too long like others have said. I put a couple extra holes and it works fine. It's really thin and dainty. But it holds up a 5lb Danelectro DC and a 8lb Telecaster. I tried it on my Gibson Les Paul (about 9lbs) and it was fine, I just didn't trust it THAT much. Anyhow, its a good strap for lighter guitars, Fender or not. Love the vintage vibe

                  I like it. It was way long for my Fender Jaguar (I'm 6'3" don't like my guitar real low), had to cut it up to make it work. Says Fender on the buckle. It's an inexpensive strap- the quality is on par with the price. It gets 4 stars because the price fits.

                  Comments about Fender Standard Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

                  I definitely love the retro look of this thing.
                  The shoulder pad can be removed if you want an even more retro look; but make sure your shoulder can handle the weight of your guitar with that thin of a strap.
                  There is plenty of strap there to work with (for me any way) to run the top of the strap all the way up to the headstock on an acoustic comfortably.
                  WHY IT GETS ONLY 4 STARS:
                  The down side on mine is, I feel the button holes are a bit larger than they need to be...so might wanna get some rubber strap locks (washers).
                  I leave my strap on when I put the guitar in it's case (to avoid widening the button holes even more), so I have to lay the buckle over the strings so it doesn't scratch the guitar.
                  I'm willing to put up with that, because I like the looks of the buckle.
                  If you're looking for a way to ad a little more eye appeal to your guitar (especially acoustic), grab one of these...people will notice.

                      Comments about Fender Standard Vintage Leather Guitar Strap:

                      This is overall a decent strap. It's very easy to adjust and holds the guitar well. Plus, it's awesome for the price. The only thing I have to complain about is that the backside of the strap isn't finished leather. But I don't know why people are complaining about the length. I'm only 12 years old and about 5' 4" and it fits me perfectly. If you to wear your guitar low it should be fine. But when I got it, it fit me fine right out of the box. Overall a good strap with some minor flaws.

                      Here's my first impression, "this thing looks cheap", for $5 more I could have gotten a much better strap. My second impression, "this thing is short!". I'm 5'-10" and at the longest setting my Les Paul is just below my chest! And it's only black in one side, which I expected, but I just thought I would reinforce it. Well, anyway that's my take, so, I'm returning it.

                      Unless you like your guitar hanging down at your knees, this might not be the strap for you. Additionally, despite being made in the US, this strap is of very poor quality. The leather is very dry - the top is a plastic sheen.Fortunately, I wasn't expecting much, given that it was so cheap. I punched a few new holes and it now sits my guitar at a respectable height.

                                I bought this strap because all the reviews say it's too long, and while it is long, not quite long enough for me. The quality is great, what you would expect of a Fender© product. I still use the strap, I believe it is 61 inches long, and I use a strap closer to 68 inches.

                                I ordered two and after trying one out, bought two more of them. I've always preferred this style and don't mind that it requires re-positioning the shoulder pad occasionally. There is a felt backing on the leather shoulder pad which is nice. The only shortcoming of this strap is that unless you like your electric guitar to "ride low," the strap, even at it's shortest setting, is likely to be too long and require you to do some "surgery" on it. This would entail either punching some additional holes for the strap buckle to use, or chopping a bit off of one end of the strap and creating a new strap button hole in that end. I did this using a drill bit and a utility knife. If you are using it for an acoustic instrument and using a lace to tie onto the head-stock then the extra length is great and will come in handy. It even comes with a short lace that can be used for this purpose.

                                  I was looking for a strap for my bass like the one that paul simonon used. This fits the look I was going for perfectly!
