This chocolate brown strap looks great, especially with the red finish of my Gibson 12-string SD. This guitar is quite top-heavy and needs a wide, solid strap or it will pitch downward into the substrate or slide off your shoulder when you're not looking. I had a great 2" Gibson nylon web strap but it was too narrow and the guitar dug into my flesh. I would prefer a stiff, thick leather strap like the tooled Levi straps I have for my Telecasters (see reviews) but they won't fit into the Gibson case. The Gibson case is too shallow to let a thick strap lay on the top of the guitar when the lid is closed. There is space under the guitar at the neck to roll up a strap but stiff Levi leather straps won't roll without the being ruined.
Enter the Franklin 3" strap. It is wide enough to hold my guitar without straining my neck, the back is rough enough to keep the guitar from sliding forward or off my neck, and the chocolate color looks good with my red guitar. The Franklin is so supple that there is no problem rolling it up and stuffing it in the space between the body and the neck in the Gibson case. I enjoy playing my guitar even more with this strap. An extra benefit: since my neck is usually sunburned in the summer, the soft inside of the Franklin strap doesn't irritate it.
Caveat: The strap is also soft and supple around the holes which go around the strap-holder buttons. Fortunately, I swapped out the big Dunlop buttons for the dinky stock Gibson buttons and I think it's unlikely my guitar will take a nose dive into the pavement. However, I'm also working on a split plastic washer to insert between the button and the strap for extra security. I'll let you know how that comes out.

This product may leave you with a "strap tail."

This is a high quality and extremely comfortable strap. However, there are only three holes to feed the strap through for adjustment purposes. If you find that the strap is still too long after adjusting (such as in my case), your left with 5 notches on the bottom end where you connect your strap lock or strap button to. To make my strap fit properly (I'm 5'9"), I have to keep my strap lock on the third notch away from the end. As such, I have a 5 inch strap tail (for lack of a better word) hanging off of my guitar. For those who may potentially be bothered by this, you may want to look for a strap that doesn't rely on this secondary means (i.e. the 5 notches) of adjustment to shorten the length.

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

This guitar strap is the last strap you'll ever need! It is super soft and supple. It is wide and comfortable and spreads the weight of your guitar across your shoulder. And on sale, WOW!!! You can't go wrong!

    This strap is on my Les Paul and feels so soft and comfortable. It is wide and long and supports a heavy guitar very well with Dunlop Strap locks.

        Good strap, not as dark as I expected.

        By bjohns54

        from Georgia

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

        I ordered the chocolate brown strap and it arrived in three days. The strap is very soft, yet durable. It is a bit long for me, but that has nothing to do with the actual product because it states the length on the description. The strap is not as dark as the picture shows. To me, it is closer to milk chocolate. I would order the black, but I do not want the red stitching. I will keep the strap because it is a good quality product, just know that it is not a "dark" brown strap.

        High Quality, Comfortable Strap!

        By Always Play Music!

        from Davis, CA

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

        This strap is the most comfortable one I've ever tried. The leather is very soft and the suede back provides friction, which helps to keep the guitar in place. It's quality materials and workmanship in a simple, no frills design. (The chocolate (dark) brown looks great!). You'll wanna wear it even after you put the guitar away!

        This is one of the best quality straps I have ever seen made from fine soft leather, no break-in required. I have two and love them. Made in the USA.

            simply put, this is hands down the most comfortable strap i've ever owned. i play a top-quality a/e grand auditorium that weighs just over 4 lbs, and i could carry it for days on this strap without ever knowing it's there. and i love it's simple yet classy design along with it's strong yet soft construction. it's a keeper, all the way.

            high kudos to mf for having the smarts to carry such a great item. i've been doing business with you guys for some time now, and i've never been disappointed. thanks & keep it up.

              I had a coupon from when I ordered a case so I thought I would use it to get a nice strap. This is one of the nicest straps I have ever tried. SUPER soft. It is well worth double the price. I am currently using this strap with my custom Wayne Henderson guitar.
