We're well-known for our dreadnought American Horsehide Leather.
Beautifully grained, virtually indestructible, sought after and
collected by cognoscenti the world over. Arguably the most famous high
performance leather, light years ahead of cowhide. Our hides have saved
guy's lives and limbs in serious bike crashes.
Through the years
we sometimes did one-off custom work for our celeb customers and friends,
including guitar straps in a variety of hides and configurations. So we figured
we'd let everyone have the opportunity of buying our stuff because it's unique
and different. And truly cool beyond belief.
The LOST WORLDS
Custom Guitar Strap - elegant but bristling with style and hipness. But never
in your face overstatement. Less is more. Extraordinary materials and hardware
Two Types of
1) Strap: 2-ply chrome-tanned Russet Brown or Black Front Quarter
Horsehide. 1-ply matching piping.
2) Belting: Genuine vegetable-tanned Horse Butt, the identical leather tanned for famous
Butt Cordovan and found on mega-expensive, $600+ shoes like Alden.
1) Genuine Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones, not plastic Asian cheapies.
2) Solid, sand-cast Nickel Spots Made in England, not dime-a-dozen hollow
3) 100% Brass
Buckle, Made in USA.
(The same hides,
hardware and fittings that bedazzle our $2200+
BUCO J24 MOTORCYCLE JACKET reproduction!)
So this isn't
your mass-produced, guitar shop strap. This one is special, for the
musician and enthusiast who understands, just as our jacket customers
do, that it's the details that are important. And individuality is most
important of all. You can buy a perfectly nice leather strap for $39.95,
but it'll be as comparable to a LOST WORLDS strap as a Kia to an AMG
Benz. This transforms your stage presence. Our gear isn't for everyone,
it ain't cheap, but to a man LW customers consider our products bargains, because they're unduplicated anywhere and get
even better (if possible!) with age.
Each is made by a single craftsman to heirloom standards. If you cherish
your guitar and your image, the proper artisan strap is a necessary
complement. American imagination and workmanship like a time capsule to
the way things used to be. With LOST WORLDS they still are.
