    I just purchased a Levy Leather adjustable strap for my Les Paul. It has the thin adjustable strap on one end.

    Which direction should I use the strap? Thin adjustable on the bridge end? Or then adjustable on the Neck end?

    Looks kind of weird with the think part of the strap on the bridge end, but feels better.

    Thanks

    They are reversible!!

    However, most were designed to be worn so the pattern or lettering is right side up when viewed from the front.
    That means buckle to the rear, but some have blingy buckles and the user likes to show the shine and that means you wear it backwards, which also facilitates access to the buckle if you are a height tweaker.

    I wear mine the 'right' way but YMMV.
    You thought this would be easy??!:drink

    Definitely feels better with thin strap on bridge side. Just thought it looked a little strange. But I love the Levy Strap. Got the brown suede with a small pattern. Looks great with my Les Paul Studio Deluxe Vintage Sunburts.

    Thanks
