I have never understood hard leather straps or soft straps with hard attachment points which might scratch the guitar. This strap is all really soft suede with one piece of nice soft regular leather only on top of the wide attachment end point and no plastic buckles - only leather. The whole underside which contacts the guitar is just so nice and soft. I went around and around the selection in the store and felt them all twice and this one was just so nice, head and shoulders above the others. The perfect strap. Well worth the price. Made in USA, too! I just had to open the holes up a bit with an exacto knife as my Martin acoustic has quite wide attachment points - the straps holes are narrow like the metal points on an electric. I could get the strap on but the fitment of the holes was too crowded so I opened the holes up a bit at a time until it was perfect. The salesman said this is a new product from Boss.
