    Default Eddie's Leather Guitar Strap...

    Hey-
    I've tried to find a close copy of Eddie's 5150 strap, has anyone made one with the baggage hooks? Anyone suggest the best and most affordable place to buy a strap similar to that strap? Thanks.-Red43j

    P.S. Any suggestions as to how to best set it up would be great (as in stiching, superglue, whatever). Thanks again.
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    My understanding was that Peavey was going to introduce a new strap that was very similar to the Wolfgang strap sometime in the near future. However, this may just be all "rumor".

    What was so nice about the Wolfgang strap, was that the adjustment strap was made of velcro and could be adjusted "on the fly". Also, the way the ends were made it easy to add the eyelet hooks.

    Nice straps, but I'll be damn if I'm going to pay $200+ for one on eBay.

    Dino-
    I agree. Still, I haven't found a practical way of making a "Van Halen-inspired" strap...meaning? Does Eddie sew the leather to the strap hook? Glue? Has anyone found a similar strap that would be great to make one into? Someone on this board has gotta know! Howzabout...anyone-ANYONE up for a "Make a replica Van Halen Guitar Strap"??? -Red43j

    Well ... I haven't made any "replica" straps, but I've made straps that work with the eyelet hooks. You can find special needles and thread for leather and rivots (both of which will work) in most craft stores, and the eyelet hooks can be found in most hardware stores.

    Here's what mine look like ...
