Specifically, the ones shown in the link below (they have several different varieties).<br /> <br /> These straps are very nice looking, comfortable, and appear to be well made. They are suede leather on both sides. I bought one for my Gibson SG, and the slight roughness from the suede on the inside face really helps with the notorious "neck heaviness" of the SG. I liked it so much, I bought another one for one of my Strats.<br /> <br /> One of our sponsors, Musician's Friend, has these for $30, but they only stock 4 of the colors shown in the Levy's link. I think Amazon may have them as well.<br /> <br /> Very highly recommended!

yep I like the Levy straps as well. I've used the suede for years, recently bought one the wider padded leather ones as well...both are great.

I must admit to being one of those obsessive ones that has a strap for each guitar.. they are all Levy's.<br /> <br /> They seem to make consistently good quality straps for all demographics of players.

Italia Straps for me. They are pricey, but occasionally have a 2fer sale (like right now).<br /> <br /> Nothing but custom-made can beat them for quality.<br /> <br /> And good smells.

Mary bought me a really nice, padded, three inch wide Levi strap for my very heavy Line 6 five string. I will still use it after I make a new, much lighter body. (I'm getting too old and worn out for heavy guitars.)

"I must admit to being one of those obsessive ones that has a strap for each guitar.. they are all Levy's."<br /> <br /> Ummmmm, me too. In fact, I have the same strap, same color for my Les Paul, Tele, Strat, and Casino.

++ on the Levy's 3" padded. I have 2 & use them more than any strap ever, like Steve says even on light guitars. <br /> I have an Onori, which is nicely made but has no adjustment short enough for an average guy (5' 10" who wears his guitar medium height). I don't know if that nice looking Zon has that problem. Franklin are very nice straps with the same problem. They could easily fix that. No Levy's straps have that problem. <br /> The Moody's- now THAT is some leather. I just don't pay $100+ for a strap. They are NICE!<br /> Brookwoods are very nice & real well made by a great guy but are a little hard & ornate for me personally. <br /> I just don't need or want any better than the 3" padded Levy's.

I have many of the mentioned about. I recently found Chanal Cordey. She now only makes one of a kind hand made straps. Her background is in films, and have done many costumes and props for "Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dorm", "Crockadile Dundee", "The Matrix" and "Superman Returns". She is not cheap, but they are incredible. Here is one of 4 that I've bought<br /> <br /> http://www.chantalsguitarstraps.com/leather_guitar_strap_170.htm<br /> <br /> She is in Australia and took about two weeks to get my order to Calif, but very well worth it!

It's not just good..

"I must admit to being one of those obsessive ones that has a strap for each guitar.. they are all Levy's."<br /> <br /> Same here.<br /> <br /> Some of those other brands linked here are beautiful, but I just can't justify the expense when I can get top-quality from a Levy's at a fraction of the cost.<br /> Leather, suede, cloth, wide, narrow - I have a bunch and they're all great.<br /> <br /> I've got a couple of the MSS3's linked in the original post...

Maybe I should switch to a Levi strap. I bought a Fender strap for all my gits, but the vinyl cracks and thenthey pinch your neck.

I found a very nice, padded Levy leather strap at the thrift store last week for $1.50. It found a nice home.

The Levy MSS3 is the standard strap for me. <br /> <br /> Anything under 2.5" is now unwearable, I'm spoiled.<br /> <br /> The design is perfect - no metal to ding your guitar, adjustability, colors, piping, all top notch. <br /> <br /> I now have them on every guitar that I leave out and the colors match like custom paint. <br /> <br /> Currently on sale for a couple bucks off at FDP Sponsor MF. <br /> <br /> Highly recommended.

On the other end of the spectrum is "Red Monkey". Very hightone and expensive, and a bit reclusive if you can find them.<br /> <br /> One of them is like 250 bucks and is a half inch wide piece of leather with a doo dad on it. Not an LP or bass strap by a long shot.
