Well made and very comfortable bass strap. Neoprene shoulder pad is just the right width and has enough give/stretch to evenly distribute the weight of the bass. Doesn't dig into your neck or shoulder as other straps do. I measured the length of this strap at a full 49 inches. The wide padded strap it replaced I had adjusted at 48 inches. So this strap's length is just perfect for me. I am six feet tall and wear my Fender Jazz bass at waist level. So if you wear your bass down between your crotch and your knees this strap is not for you.

The strap is too stretchy, and doesn't distribute weight well. The shortness people complain about doesn't bother me, I play with what I consider a normal position, and I have plenty of adjustment up and down. For just a little bit more, there's a similar strap that is a MUCH better option. If you're installing straplocks, be prepared to drill out or enlarge the holes in very stiff leather to make them fit. If you're using this on a light instrument without straplocks you may like it. For everyone else, keep looking.

    Comments about Fender Neoprene Bass Strap:

    This is a really comfortable bass strap. I love that it's squishy and a little stretchy. It doesn't pull on my neck or pull my long hair. I read some of the other reviewers that had problems with the length. I'm 5' 9.5" and it works great for me. I don't hang the bass down real low, though. I keep it about mid-body. And for the price, I'm really happy!

            This strap has really helped take some of the weight off of my shoulder.
            In order to avoid frustration, measure the strap you are currently using and if it fits within the 35"-45" adjustment of this Fender Neoprene Bass Strap, then it will adjust to your desired height.

              I use these great Fender Bass Straps on all my instruments since trying it on my Jazz bass. This strap keeps your instrument where you play it. In the Zone.

                  I have been using this strap with Jazz Bass V and have no complains. Now I am getting another one for Firebird bass. These are not light weight basses. Strap is still in good shape over 4 years of use.

                  Yes, this strap is short so if you play bass at weist level, this one is not for you.

                    When I bought this I thought I would be getting a strap with enough length to hold my bass comfortably and help with neck dive. The reality is quite the opposite. It might work better with heavier basses but all mine does is slip off my shoulder with this strap.

                      This is not the first one of these that I have purchased. The price is lower than the first ones that I purchased, which is a plus for MF. From personal experience, this strap, which is designed for a Bass, does a great job of distributing the weight of the instrument on the player's shoulder. This is important, especially when playing for a long period. The Fender logo makes it a definite assessory for a Precision or Jazz Bass.

                              I took a chance on a Black Friday deal and wasted my money. In the product description, no size was listed. I just figured it would adjust to any reasonable size. I don't know if this strap was meant for little people or small children. If you like playing bass at your throat, this is the strap for you. The strap is comfortable, it's is a shame that they tried to save money by not giving you enough adjustable slack.
