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 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.

      Thats why you have the "tail" and 3" wide strap. They hang lower and are heavier. The Franklin 2.5 ' wide caramel one is great for guitars. I have both.

          I bought this as a gift, so I can't speak of its performance. I don't play guitar either, so I don't know about all that. But I was impressed that the leather seemed to be high quality. Seemed soft and comfortable. Nice color. The shipping was superb. I would buy from them again if I have another guitar gift to give.

                      Excellent quality. Backside is textured (suede) and prevents slippage. Love these straps and own three. Wish they made more colors!

                      Great for my Les Paul gold top LPJ. I also bought the Dunlop strap locks in black for long term use. This works on any guitar but I found it works well on heavy guitar or dreadnoughts using a strap lock, Schaller or Dunlop because the leather may loosen up during constant placing and removing causing the openings to wear open and thus losing the tight opening and there goes the leather. The strap locks are an investment, never breaks, and transferable to another strap. Great combination. My humble opinion.

                          The strap is really well made and it's super soft. I'm returning it for another color though as the one I received is not the dark chocolate brown that is pictured. Mine is lighter and looks a bit chintzy. I'll probably order the black instead.
