I can't complain about the product itself. But the page for the product is missing some descriptions. I had ordered a strap, thinking it was one thing....but got another. When ordering they are not showing the straps, I did the "process of elimination". I wanted the second strap from the left. It's obviously not American Gothic, or Michaelangelo, or the Scream, or Starry Night or the Birth of Venus.......so I picked Toulouise, figuring it is the one.

As it turns out, there are descriptions for SIX straps, but there are EIGHT showing in the photo. I am going to keep it anyway, since I will need a new strap.....but this was for a gift....and a good friend picked it out for me to get them.

All that was needed was to just mark "not in stock" or remove the pictures of the two straps in question altogether. Now, I will have to start looking elsewhere.

Just a minor irritation....not the end of the world......but you guys need to pay attention to detail when listing your items.

It will do the job (that is to hold a guitar) but is not the quality or pizzazz I was hoping for.
I was looking for a guitar strap for a discerning relative - something fun yet sophisticated (not the usual flames and skulls), and was delighted to find the art collection by Ralph Marlin. I received it quickly, and best of all with free shipping! Unfortunately, when I opened the box I found a cheap-looking pale imitation of "Starry Night" (not that I was expecting the original) with vinyl backing. I would not have purchased this item if I had seen it first. I will still give it to my nephew, but will have to make excuses for its disappointing quality.
disappointing: cheap vinyl backing and washed-out looking graphics
price was very reasonable - I guess I shouldn't have expected so much., but the pictures looked great!

      Strap is usable, material and stitching are good quality but the Starry Night perspective is not as shown on the strap in the web catalog, it is zoomed in to the point where the art is barely recognizable.

      Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad

        Comments about Ralph Marlin Art Series Guitar Strap:

        Since I'm an artist and art history buff I was excited to discover these straps. The thought of setting aside my paint brushes after a day of slinging paint on a canvas to grab one of my guitars with an art themed strap was just too exciting. So I bought three of these straps finding I loved two of them and returned the third.

        The Michelangelo's "David" looks great and I'm loving it on my white Fender Strat.

        "The Birth of Venus" that I purchased also looks great and I have it on my Taylor 12 string.

        "Starry Night" was the third one I purchased and planned to put on my blue Fender Strat but once I saw it, I was very disappointed and shocked at how bad it looked. It looked like a bad, out of focus image of the painting making difficult to even tell what I was looking at. The sky was not blue but a sad, sick looking purple. That one had to Gogh.

        While I do recommend "David" and "The Birth of Venus," don't even think about ordering "Starry Night."

        I guess Meatloaf was right, two out of three ain't bad.

            Comments about Ralph Marlin Art Series Guitar Strap:

            The strap looks good, and the width is super comfy. However, it will not adjust short enough for me. I'm petite. I should've looked at the measurements closer before I ordered. I mean I can make it work, but it is difficult. Plus, the top of the design goes over my shoulder when adjusted as short as it will go. It IS very beautiful though (I got David). It would be better also if the company logo was much smaller. Tacky. Overall, I do like it though.

                              It's a strap.
                              It looks cool.
                              It's light weight.
                              The 3" width helps make heavy guitars feel lighter.
                              It's a little stiff, but OK.
                              The ends seem secure.

                                  I usually use nylon webbing straps. For example, the standard Ernie Ball. Not something I've given much consideration to, just functional and cheap.

                                  This strap is 3" wide as compared to 2" for the others, and the layered construction to put the nice print on makes it a little stiffer.

                                  So, at first, it just feels a wee bit odd. I may get used to it. If you get the strap biting into your shoulder, the extra width may even be a good thing.

                                  It does look spiffy...

                                    Not bad for the money. Nice wide strap. Has some rough edges though. Kind of annoying to have my neck cut into all the time. Perhaps it'll soften up. Artwork on this and the other Marlin straps (I also have The Scream - use that one when I've had a crappy drive home) is pretty cool.

                                    I have the "Screamer" and "Starry Night" straps for about seven years now, can't believe they're still making them. Mine are holding up well after all these years. Put strap locks on them, as with any strap, to avoid any drops, strap will last a long time.

                                    It is a strap. I don't care for it very much but it does the job. Won't buy another

                                    Besides being wider than many traditional guitar straps, the Ralph Marlins seem to hold up well. I've had mine 18 months or longer and they're in great shape.The patterns are also unique with nice variation of themes, not the typical World, USA, or Goth look so many straps stick you with.Quality is average but for guitar has held up fine. I use a bass with one of these straps as well and have not had the unfortunate experience that the other reviewer has.
