Back in 1968 I got a wah,Gibson SG and a Strap just like Clapton's after seeing The Cream. Somewhere between Texas and Hawaii the strap disappeared.I have spent the last 40 years on and off trying to find one. Well one was finally delivered to me today. And it didn't cost me $200 ;)
It is not a pedal but it is a thing ;).CC2 in the background for the hardcore..
Looks nice on the Ole 335.

Sweet. I love Ace straps. They definitely have the 60s psychedelic vibe.

Who makes these style straps now?? I have the hendrix strap that came with my Hendrix strat but never seen ones like Clapton or Alvin lee used..

I have one of their straps. Kind of expensive, but supremely comfortable. I now much prefer playing standing up than sitting down.

I think I paid like 4.99 for the strap in 68,remember the wah was $69 and the sg standard was $225 with case. I paid $10 for a Maestro fuzz(boy was I disappointed). This strap being vintage was a steal.It had been restitched by a pro..But no I won't be hanging the 335 off it.:D
Wish I could farm this strap out to a manufacturer and have the pattern copied..Yea I know I'm a sucker ;)

Where can I find a Maestro Fuzz for $10? I will not be disappointed.
:D That was about like $70 today. It was also my first modded pedal with custom paint. My Dad removed the cable and replaced it with a jack and my neighbor painted it with dayglow paint. Looked cool under the blacklight.But it was no fuzzface. I did not know back then..
