Frankenstrat Eruption'78 and/or Shark leather/stud/chain replica strap
Do you own a VHI white and black striped guitar like Eddie's looked in 1978? Or the red and silver "Shark" Destroyer? Have you always wanted an accurate chain and stud strap like Ed's to go with it? 100% authentically accurate to Ed's, including: 19x3 rows of correct 13mm straight-side/pointed cone studs on double-thick top grain leather (stud prongs hidden between the layers) measured and cut to the exact specs of Ed's original dog collar strap pad, 1/4" brads in front holding correct D ring and single screw brad in back holding correct O ring with split link-locks connecting 4.8mm thick twist link chain (including "tail"), with 2 more split link-locks holding correct shaped "clover leaf D ring swivel clips on each end. The correct cone studs, 4.8mm chain, and real vintage swivel clips are virtually impossible to locate items and were not even used by Fender/EVH on their recent "case candy" straps. Vintage original swivel clips are EXTREMELY rare... I have a limited supply, and they are just about the only ones available anywhere in the world. Upgrade includes vintage 3rd "flat shaft" clip as well. If you wish to have the vintage originals, request them in a note or message and pay an additional charge (I will invoice you for "Deluxe Upgrade" separately). But as supply decreases, the price for the vintage clips will increase. I only have 2 pairs left, when these 40 year old clips are gone there will likely never be any more! Each strap is constructed/assembled entirely by hand and comes with duct and electrical tape in correct places, 3rd'flat shaft' clip connecting pad with back side chain, and measured to your specifications for length. All straps are new but with some slight "apparent age" to simulate Ed's; however, they can be sent in pristine condition as well. For your custom length, the strap is measured from inside the swivel clip on one end to the corresponding inside of the opposite end, as it would hang from the eyebolts in your guitar. The easiest method for determining length is to measure one of your current straps from button hole to opposite button hole, or straplock to straplock if so equipped. If you do not own any other strap then length can be approximated by your height and preference for the guitar's positioning on your body, and can be adjusted later 1 at a time by removing single links from the chain(s).
Due to limitations presented by the individual length of each chain link, overall strap length will occasionally be either shorter or longer than the measurement you provide, but never by more than 1/2" total--typically the straps are right on the measurement or no more than +/- 1/4".
