I use Levy's 4.5" padded leather straps - thanks to rugby injuries I have to use wide padded straps and Levy's makes the best, IME.

Some Righton straps appeared in the shop near me and they look pretty nice.

Big Couch fan here but just picked up one of these from JayKco:

Needed something to hold the weight of the guitar (a 1980 Greco Les Paul that's a seriously heavy chunk of wood). What I liked about these is that they're backed with suede, not seatbelt webbing (I hate that stuff 'cause it slides on T-shirts and burns on skin) and there are no rivets - everything is sewn. Really, really nice feel - feels like a vintage Ace but better made. In Kansas City, but find 'em here: http://www.jaykco.com

I got a Couch strap with my goodies from Secret Santana one year. It's still as nice as the day I got it :thumb:

I will be venturing into the den of the lion today to acquire a strap and locks for my 8 string.. I haven't bought a strap in easily 13 years. I hope they aren't battery powered or some shit now.. :erm:

Italia usually has a 2-for-1 or less sale... I've been digging 3" (or 4") wide leather strap for a while now. Actually want to get another, but I'd rather have someone split the cost of one with me instead of getting 2 straps to myself Image

Yes, I love my Levy's strap, same size.
Sonidero turned me on to the idea of using Grolsch bottle gaskets as strap-locks and I've never gone back.

If it has a strap on it, it has grolsch locks around here.
...Also, from Sonidero :lol: Had the pleasure of consuming them together on more than one occasion

Grolsch locks are so stupidly simple and effective that anything else seems inferior.

Also I'm partial to Souldier straps. I'm a small man and I need a short strap to sling 'em high.

Me too. I have my couch strap as short as it goes and wish it had a bit more room for adjustment.
