I've been using this strap since the mid-90's, practicing, rehearsing and gigging up to 5 nights a week. I purchased the first one because my 11-1/2 pound bass guitar on the 2" wide strap was KILLING my shoulder. And at 6'1" and over 220lbs, I'm a big, tough guy! As far as the pad floating down the inside, which a few people have complained about and I battled with in the beginning, I adjusted mine to a comfortable position, tacked the pad in place with a couple of stitches from a needle and thread, and YOWZA! No more problem. It takes a bit of work on your part, but the results are phenomenal. The Planet Waves Polypropylene Bass Guitar Strap, in my experience, is comfortable, well made, and almost indestructible. I had an inferior strap come off my Jazz Bass during a gig many years ago, but that has NEVER been an issue with the Planet Waves strap, mainly, I believe, due to the thick, stiff leather ends. Get yourself one of these straps and install strap locks on your guitars, tack the pad in a comfortable position so it doesn't move while you bop your top and you'll be STYLIN' for many moons to come!

This strap had great reviews and the price was right. I only saw 1 negative review, which to me says it's probable that individual.

For me the strap is too big, I an average size guy and wear by bass fairly low. There are 2 adjustments, front and rear. The front adjustment, plastic peace, sits right at my shoulder making uncomfortable.

    Comments about Planet Waves Polypropylene Bass Guitar Strap:

    I read the other reviews here and found all the good observations to be true. I did have to reposition the padding inside the strap by squishing it around a bit. It really does move to where you need it and so far has stayed put. I bought this one for my Jazz bass, which I wear a little lower than waist level, and it has several inches of length to spare. I plan on buying another on for my double neck.

      Padded, very comfortable and adjustable. The pick holder is also a nice touch.

          You can either remove the planet wave patch/logo and slide the padding to the tip for those players who wear their guitar/bass above their belts.

          OR you can slide padding all the way to the other end opposite of the patch if you don't want to take out the patch. Problem solved.

              This strap really helps out with the weight of heavier guitars/basses. I use it for my guitars, and it feels great. Doesn't cut into your shoulder like cheap nylon straps do because of the soft material of the inside of the strap. Even has a pick holder to store extra picks in case you drop one. Great for the money and I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

                When I started using a baritone scale guitar I found that a standard size strap was starting to get uncomfortable. I switched to this strap and it has been amazing. I now use this strap on all of my guitars!

                Comments about Planet Waves Polypropylene Bass Guitar Strap:

                The position of the pick holder hinders how far forward the pad can be slid in the strap. Easily fixable tho, I just cut the stitching and removed it. Now it sits perfectly. It's a very comfortable strap. The inside is a soft fabric, overall I'm very satisfied. Taking away one star just because of the pick holder thing. But it really was a minor thing, and a quick fix.

                I use this strap, literally, on all of my electric guitars and basses.

                This strap is comfortable, even with heavy guitars/bases, and they last forever. I might add that the price is excellent for the quality and functionality that you get. I have been using these for at least the last 10 years of so, and have never had one single issue with them.

                BTW, I use these, always, with Schaller Straplocks... I know, love, and can trust this combination.

                      51 years of heavy Les Pauls have killed my shoulder. This wide strap helps tremendously. Not just for bass players. Spread the weight relieve the pain of overly heavy guitars. Well made and very functional. A+++
