This was going to be a gift for a friend and the color on the image is a nice "honey" and the color of the strap is a pretty dark brown. I compared the SKU numbers and they are the same, but it doesn't look anywhere close to the image on line. It's a GREAT strap, just not the color my friend wanted.

        Ordered this strap based on it's advertised and shown color to go with a 'Natural Honey Maple' top guitar. But on arrival, the color was not as described or shown. It was a much darker, almost 'coco' brown color, and not the 'carmel' color.It is just totaly a wrong color for the guitar I ordered it for.

        Comments about Franklin Strap 3" Caramel Leather Guitar Strap with Gold Stitching:

        Over the years I Have made my own straps from leather I have aquired from various sources---Yeah I'm an old "Farm Boy" so don't call PETA on me! In the guitar stores I have tried these straps and they are comfortable (I'm a bassist). Now if you find the length of it to be too long there is enough room to punch a hole further up the lower end of the stap. If you don't have a leather punch like I do then drill a hole thru it. (If you use Dulop Srap-Loks a 1/4" drill bit will get you there. Just measure correctly. I hope this helps for all those who don't wear their guitars down around their knees.

        Comments about Franklin Strap 3" Caramel Leather Guitar Strap with Gold Stitching:

        Great strap, I own two of these and I am in the process of ordering a third. I disagree with the other reviewer, the color (carmel) is dead on. I have it on a blond strat and the color almost matches. They do make one in brown, I wonder if he got one by mistake? The one gripe I have is that the strap is a bit long, even when adjusting it to its shortest possible length. I'm 6' tall, I don't wear my guitars super high, but i don't emulate Page either. I took it to a shoe/leather repair shop, they cut off the end (two holes' worth) and restitched the end. $3!

        A 'pretty' good one!

        By Carl Clifford

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Franklin Strap 3" Caramel Leather Guitar Strap with Gold Stitching:

        This is a good strap for keeps. I might have exchanged it for a darker color but I think it will suit my Taylor with Ovangol body, as the color is close. It is quite strong to hold a Les Paul but I prefer the ones with the tooled end as seems to have some extra thickness at the ends. Would help if they can make it slightly shorter but with some manupulation we could reduce the length of it if necessary.
        The feautures are great.Soft suede type leather & the color may be more suitable for acoustic guitar I guess as it seems more on the brighter side & may stabd out on your shirt a bit too much. Someone said the length was too long but I found it just a little over the average strap, which can be good for different types of guitars. Gave it a 7 since the color may be too bright & the leather a tad too soft, but I doubt it would wear out soon & can stand for long.
        Good.
        You can't beat that price for sure. It is definitely worth it.

            This arrived Brown. I called Musicians friend and was told that I could return it for another but the warehouse would send another Brown strap. The Vin number is attached to the Brown strap and it is Franklin sending the Kansas City Warehouse these straps. To bad, this strap isn't the color of my guitar. But... pain in the butt to return and it is a very nice guitar strap so I'm keeping it. It is Brown like the trunk of a tree is Brown. I see the full spectrum of colors just fine. If I had to do it all over again I would have gone with another color though..

                this is a superb leather suede guitar strap, its thick leather and strong stitching make this one a keeper! the only gripe i have is that the one they sent me is not carmel colored like advertised, they sent me one which was light brown and carmel on the back side, but a total non issue, this is an excellent strap!

                Comments about Franklin Strap 3" Caramel Leather Guitar Strap with Gold Stitching:

                I bought this Caramel colored 3 inch Franklin Strap for my 2005 Epi Sheraton II, and I love it! This was my first Franklin strap, but not my last. Unlike some of the reviews I've read, I bought this strap because of the extra length. I'm a big guy, and most "off the rack" straps tend to be too short for me, even on the very last notch. But with this strap, I have it adjusted at the 3rd notch, and it fits just right. And soft? Even my deerskin gloves aren't this soft. So liking this strap as much as I did, I just bought the 2.5 inch chocolate brown southwest strap for my brand new Guild D-50 Standard. But alas, because the strap button on the back of my guitar is on the bottom of the heel, it puts the very nice looking engraved silver medallion too close to the back of my new guitar for comfort. So I'm going to order another one of these 3 inch plain leather straps in Chocolate brown to go with my new Guild D-50. The leather on these straps is so soft, there is no way it will damage even the thinnest of nitrocellulose finishes. And I'm not sending the other strap back, it'll work and look just fine on my Shoreline Gold strat. If you need a good strap for your guitar, you should check these straps out, because they really are great straps!

                Comments about Franklin Strap 3" Caramel Leather Guitar Strap with Gold Stitching:

                I recently bought one of these straps, and I can tell you that it pays to spend a little more. The construction is superb, and the leather is as soft and supple as you'll find anywhere. It's got multiple layers, so it's thick and durable. The suede inside of the strap is just a little grippy (and softer than a baby's butt), so it'll help if your guitar is a unbalanced. They didn't skimp on length, either, so for those who like to sling it low (or are fat like me!) this strap offers all the flexibility you need. Beautifully made and well worth spending a bit more.
