OVERVIEW

John Lennon used the original Vox Black Leather Python Guitar Strap on his Rickenbacker 325 when he played the Ed Sullivan Showfor his appearances in February 1964, then gave it to Eric Clapton during his Cream days in 1967. The original Python Guitar Strap was auctioned by Sotheby's for $4,500 in recent years. This 2" wide reproduction by Vox has 25 "armored" chrome plates riveted to the heavy leather strap. This historic guitar strap is just over 52" long fully extended.

A remarkable piece of rock history.


It's a unique-looking strap associated with rock's greatest icons. Order yours today.

        You will BE John Lennon!

        By 

        from Georgia

        Comments about Vox Python Guitar Strap:

        I've had 2 of these and they are not to be believed. You strap this baby on and you'll channel good old Johnny. Quality craftsmanship throughout. NOT a piece of junk. However, the metal must be cleaned periodically or rust and tarnish will set in. One of my favorite straps I own. Pricey, but it's just like the one the Chief Beatle used. Exactly the same. (BTW..the description above says John wore this on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. He did not own this strap until a few months later. He did, however, wear it on Ed Sullivan the following year in August 1965.)

        Now wonder Lennon wore this for so long...the craftsmanship on it is amazing! Very comfortable and the coolest strap I own. I work at GUITAR CENTER and there is no cooler strap than this in the entire store. Perfect to go with your Rickenbacker.

        Attention-getter

        By 

        from Sunny Southern Wisconsin

        Comments about Vox Python Guitar Strap:

        Lennon-mojo aside, it definitely has a unique look that gets noticed, especially by other musicians. The chrome plates reflect stage lighting for a nice flashy presentation. The price is steep, and maybe could be better, but you're getting a lot of hardware attached to a good quality piece of leather.It has some weight to it, but rides on the shoulder comfortably.One note about "all that hardware" is, the chrome plates on the front can get stained, pitted or RUST if you don't clean off your fingerprints, sweat and blood after a gig.Overall: Great looks, great vibe, not cheap.

        Comfort and Style

        By 

        from Fargo, ND

        Comments about Vox Python Guitar Strap:

        I just received this strap today and I had to rush to let everyone know how great it actually is. This is probably the most comfortable strap I have ever seen and the fantastic looks make it a no brainer. I have a Fender John 5 Tele and as heavy as it is this strap is perfect and even matches the color chrome for chrome. The only minus on it is the price, a little steep but if you are looking for a stong strap that looks awesome you can get no better.
