    I wanted something distinctive/out of the ordinary to go with my white Gretsch. It took some hunting around but I found this Levy's white leather strap, I think it really goes well. What do you guys think?

    Does any company do a wide white leather strap with a black F hole on? It'd look good on that aswell. :)

    There's also a black strap with white notes, but I haven't seen any with f-holes on them. If you search hard enough, it wouldn't surprise me if there's somebody that makes one.

    That is one classy combo. I like it!( especially the Gretsch )

    I was thinking of going with the Black and White Milk Cow Boogie

    I picked the top two plus some silver Celtic Conches on the Black Celtic Strap

    But with the Gretsch that note's for you !

    i'm a little disapointed with eyeland. i ordered one of their straps and it just came yesterday. real nice except it adjusts using velcro :messedup which is not cool for a $100+ strap! i emailed them asking for an exchange/re-do on the adjust section so it would have a buckle or snaps, but i havent heard back yet. wish me luck.

    Thanks for the mention, Joe ! I built a website since we spoke the other day. =~ http://brookwoodleather.com/
    Your strap is pictured on here ~~~ minus the conchos which are due in this week
    I'd welcome feedback or suggestions from you and the other fellas here.
    Cool match of that strap and Gretsch !!

    Man that looks like a publicity photo for Gretsch. That's REALLY classy.

    Does your strap have a backing or just leather? Reason I ask is that I have a nice custom strap that my parents gave me, but it won't slide like I need due to the rough leather back.

    Earth II made a strap just like that years ago. I have it and the black with white notes as well.

    The back is sueded, tan color, and it doesn't slide. I would prefer if it were smooth and slid around, but I guess you can't have everything. :(
