    I've watched for one of those as well, but they aren't cheap. Was also curious if the ring would be a hindrance.

    Yeah, it looks cool as hell, but that ring is definitely dangerous. I'm still not sure what I'll do.

    I got one of those Duane Allman style straps and while it looks cool I ended up taking it off - the ring would slap against the body of the guitar when I would set it down, and left a dent in the face...

    I was thinking about maybe wrapping some leather lacing around the ring... it won't go back on unless I can find a way where it won't damage the finish.

    Yeah, I can totally see it denting the guitar while picking it up / putting it back on a stand unless being really careful...

    Doesn't do it for me but to each their own. Yeah most of us here love aged guitars it seems. The originals didn't get into their current state by tucking them into bed every night. They were tools of the trade and gathered character over the years by none too precious care.

    Thanks for posting those sweet pics.
    Those straps are like giant Blues/Roots antennae sitting over your heart when you play! Very cool feeling!
