It’s important to know, when shopping for a leather guitar strap you must verify that it’s real leather. Many companies say their straps are leather, but they name them as “veggie leather strap” or “PU leather strap” – these are not leather and will not last a long time. Also fake leather after awhile will start smelling bad and crack. Avoid “veggie” leather at all cost when shopping for leather products.
