Bass players, or anyone with a heavy guitar, will love this strap. The body is 3.5” wide and spreads the weight of the instrument comfortably over the shoulder. The top is a deeply oiled glove leather with a naked finish and the backing is perforated garment leather with a polished surface, reminiscent of exotic European sports car upholstery.
The front and back adjustment tails are fastened to the body with large chrome rings that give this strap a deadly serious vibe on stage. The ends of the strap body are also finished with the “Franklin” signature which gives this strap a very unique character.

Best Strap I have Ever Owned
By Paul from on 1/26/2017
Soft leather, wide at the shoulder, adjustable buckles, actual metal buckles, not nylon/plastic, strong stitching. Perforated backing with the soft leather makes it very comfortable to wear. I have a rack full of straps that I've bought over the years searching to find the one that checked off all the boxes for me. Glad I can stop looking now. (really).
Also, kudos to Bass Gear for the extremely fast processing and shipping of my order, as well as the great sale price on this strap.
