Thanks for the tip. I was thinking some of the Italia straps looked like they might be suede lined.Gibson Guy said:Thanks SCREEM: anyone buy a strap from italia?
On the 335: I've got a suede Levy's strap that's a real "grabber." Smooth leather won't do it, so try something either all suede, or lined with suede if you can find it. Plus, suede smells great! Funny yours is neck heavy - I was just looking at one at L&M in Mississauga that was on sale. Nice guitar, great neck, but it felt like it had lead weights in it's tail! Wouldn't even balance on my knee, kept wanting to throw the neck up in the air. I've never played one like that before. Guess that's why it's on sale ($1995 I think). Too bad, it's otherwise a really nice guitar.
I have one of the suede L&M straps, and really like it on the tele, but it makes my neck raw with a heavier guitar like an LP. Levy makes a really nice wide brown leather one with a real sheepskin lining. Best i've ever used both soft and grippy. I think its also the most expensive strap ever at about $70.davetcan said:I'm looking for a good "non-slip" strap for a neck heavy 335. Would leather be the way to go? Any other options?
Great! Here's the response I got from Cindi.Tarbender said:Not to disagree but I have two Italia straps that are not suede lined... and I have 3 others that are. Excellent quality straps at a very good price. Not as good as my Moody but for the price, they can't be beat. And shipping... mine took 6 weeks to get here with no apologies.
