    Plain black canvas. Nothing more. Usually use the black Rock Steady.

    I'm guessing Brent at TGS could get them if he doesn't already stock some accessory stuff?

    Being 6'6" I'm used things being too short for me, it's a short person's world. This includes most if not all of the PRS straps. However, a strap extender is a great idea and I would love to know what you got and see some pics.

    My Levy's leather one came yesterday.
    Nice strap, but the leather is so thick I could hardly get the Schaller Strap Locks in, and I could not use the washers.

    I also bought two more from Amazon, one by Levy's, and one from Planet Waves, they will arrive tomorrow, and I have more Schaller Strap Locks on order too.
    These straps are easier to use, as they have the buckle you slide the strap through.
    The other leather ones I have are a PITA if you want to adjust them, as you have to take the Strap Lock off to do so.

    John, good to know it is nice.
    I am getting away from a few nylon/poly ones I have, as they are not good on a Nitro finish like I have on my SG, plus they are slippery, and SGs are infamous for neck dive from the HUGE headstock and lightweight body.

    That is why I bought the leather ones I have that are white on the inside part, they grip shirts very well and hold the guitar from neck diving.

    What about these cotton straps?
    Do they grip the shirt good too?

    I think they're a nice combo of grip and slip. They won't grip your shirt so much that your shirt gets stretched into a awkward position while you're playing, but they grip enough to keep the guitar from neck diving. But then, my guitars haven't been neck heavy so much. If anything my CU22 is heavy in the ass-end.

    Snagged a pic yesternight of all of my straps.
    All but the second one from the left have the Schaller Strap Locks on them.
    I have a set for them, have not got around to adding them to it yet.

    Combination of PRS (two of them), Levys, and Planet Waves straps.
    The Levy to the far left I got earlier in the week, but I am almost wishing I had not got it.
    Trying to get away now from the straps you have to adjust by putting the one end through a slit in the strap.
    Every time you want to adjust the strap, you have to get out your wrench and take off the Strap Lock.

    Think I am going to mainly use the straps with the sliding buckle on them like the PRS ones and a few of the Planet Waves ones have on them.
    Much easier to adjust the strap.

    The two to the left of the PRS ones I also got this week, they are the scull ones from Planet Waves, and the black cotton one from Levy's.

    Yeah, I have to many, may end up seeing if my younger son wants a few, as I think he only has one right now.
