I was looking at a lot of fancy leather straps online for my Les Paul that cost 3-4x more than this when I saw this at my local Sam Ash store. Being able to see it and feel it in person made all the difference. All I could think was why should I pay more, this is very nice. The brown and black sides go very well with my guitars color scheme, it looks more expensive than it is, it's comfortable and it's made in Canada. Sold. Right now it has my Schaller strap locks on it and complements my guitar very well. There's nothing to complain about here.
