Leather Hip Strap Guitar Strap

New for March 2022, the long awaited "leather" version of our top selling Hip Strap is now available. With this comfortable ergonomic guitar strap, you can remove all of the shoulder weight of your guitar or bass and enjoy playing without the back and shoulder pain, or the tingling and numbness a standard guitar strap can cause from bearing all of the weight on one shoulder.

Made from top grain Latigo leather, this custom guitar strap is a strong and durable  strap that will last for years and years. The edges are hand beveled and burnished for a smooth and comfortable feel, and the leather will soften and age beautifully the more you use it. The metal buckle is strategically placed to the side to avoid scratching or worming the back of your guitar. Because it is directly cut from the hide, you may find some stretch marks, insect bite scars, etc. that make the strap uniquely yours as we do not add an artificial topcoat to simulate a perfect finish.

We include the Leash Strap with your order so you have the option to use it or not depending on the guitar or bass you're playing. Just select your actual waist measurement (above your navel, not your pant size) and you'll receive a beautiful handmade leather guitar strap that will bring you or the player you're gifting years of joy and service. Again, DO NOT SELECT YOUR PANT SIZE! Those numbers are not accurate and could cause you to receive the wrong size strap.

We do not import our straps from overseas using cheap labor. All of our leather guitar straps are hand cut directly from the cowhide, sewn, assembled and boxed right here in our Los Angeles workshop. To watch a video on how we make the Hip Strap, click HERE. Your order will include the leather strap(s), screw fasteners, screw glue and black muslin travel bag. 

As you'll read in our reviews, we pride ourselves in excellent customer service. If you ever have any issues or questions, please reach out HEREPlease allow 5 to 7 business days for our handmade leather straps to be shipped. Click HERE for a video tutorial on how to assemble the Leather Hip Strap. 

The video below demonstrates that and how to wear this ergonomic guitar strap. The strap demonstrated in the video is the same design only made from webbing. 

 

Important Note: For proper playing position, the Hip Strap guitar strap requires adding or moving a strap button to the lower bout or "horn" of the guitar (as shown in the videos and photos). There is a "strap button installation video" posted under the "Videos" tab in the top left corner of the page to assist you. Strap buttons are sold separately on this site for your convenience. Slinger Straps is not liable for the installation of the strap button nor the consequences to your instrument from performing the installation.
