Cool Guitar Straps

Updated on December 4, 2013

Guitar Straps For Your Acoustic, Bass Or Electric Guitars

Here you will find a great selection of cool guitar straps for any guitar type that have, as well as steps on properly attaching your strap to your guitar. Some straps are made with genuine leather, and that's what makes them cool. However you don't have to buy expensive straps to make your guitar stand out. There are many cool designs and materials that will help to hold your guitar perfectly in place.

So what are the different types of guitar straps? Many are made of wide leather with soft padding.

Some are with simple designs imprinted on them, while others are some really cool designs with lots of graphics. Which you choose will depend not only your tastes, but also what feels more comfortable to you. Luckily most of these straps come at under $20, so getting a second one in case you find the first not to be up to par is extremely easy and cheap.

Levy's Guitar Straps

Levy's Immitation Electric Snake Leather Guitar Strap

I like this Levy's design too much (but then I'm biased towards red). It is a 2.5 inches wide guitar strap that comes with foam padding and leather backing. It has a cool snake design. You can adjust its length from 45 to 51 inches and there is another version available that is 12 inches longer for the tall people or those who really want longer straps for their guitars.

While it really doesn't add that much more to comfort than other Levy's guitar straps, here is all about the design and about cool guitar straps, so this one fits right in!

The ends are leather and the strap is adjustable to 65 inches, so it's perfect for any type of guitar. Loving this one!

Also notice how the leather end has been designed to perfectly match the rest of the strap, it really makes the strap cool.

Levy's Leathers 2 Jacquard Weave Hootenanny Guitar Strap

This is a cool guitar strap with main color yellow, which is fully adjustable up to 54". Quite sturdy and really looking great, not a boring strap at all. No matter which guitar you have, this strap will work quite well as it's quite thick, so it will hold even the heaviest bass guitar.

Also it's extremely comfortable so you can play the guitar for quite a long time without rest.

As for why it's cool - I've seen it first hand. My brother has a light colored guitar and this strap goes so well with it, it's awesome. And well, it's a Levy!

Is There A Difference Between Different Types Of Guitar Straps?

All straps are adjustable these days. Bass straps are a bit thicker and always padded to hold the weight of the guitar and avoid fatigue, but otherwise a strap is a strap, it can be used interchangeably for any type of guitar you have. You can use the bass strap on other guitar types as well.

This is a really cool design by Levys in their guitar straps department. Black and red with printed and embroidered butterflies, it not only looks great but is also sturdy and will last you for long. 2.5 inches wide, it's extendable to 53 inches and it comes in a longer version that adds 12 inches to it.

This is an example that is perfect for holding your bass guitar. It comes in no less than 7 colors including black, brown, natural, burgundy and several others, and its width is 3.5 inches, perfect for a bass guitar. Note: price does vary between colors and designs (but you can check all prices on the link below, they're all under one product).

Don't care much for the Levy's brand or love pythons? Here is a cool guitar strap that fits the bill right there. It is made of black leather of high quality (deluxe quality) and it has Python metal plates and studs that make it really stand out from the crowd. It's a bit heavy, but when you're on stage, the studs really reflect the light back, making an awesome filter effect.

This is basically a reissue of the original and famous Vox Python strap. It really looks cool!

If you subscribe to the whole recycling and saving the eco-system idea, then this strap - which is looking cool as well - will be the right one for you. It is made from recycled auto seat-belts and salvaged leather and it's made in the US.

The strap has a unique pattern on it, depending on the fabric pattern it was made from. If you want a long strap, this one is for you as it's actually 60 inches long! Way longer than most other straps I've come across.

Featuring the classic and well known design, you won't go wrong with this one!
