    i think i might order some 2" wide leather strips, and make straps for all my guitars. I just need to buy a hole punch.

    It's the custom shop. Thought I'd let everyone know. Sorry if that sounds "snappy".

    I did some leather work twenty something years ago. It was fun but everything came out looking just a little to "Cowboy" for my taste. Good luck with it.

    A cowboy I am definitely not, not that there's anything wrong with cowboys. That "super cool story" was meant for Beginnerguitarguy. :D

    Well, I don't know what his reasoning might be, but mine would be that because burning leather smells like, well, burning leather. Which smells absolutely horrid.

    Antique it. Any peeps with leather tooling experience will know what antiquing is. I suggest skipping the buring part. I did it once as a request, and that smell never left the item.

    I personally love the smell. I have a band I made to go around my wrist, and I'll just sit there smelling it...
