I didn't know which forum to post this on, and I'm sorry if it is the wrong one. But here's the story. I recently ordered a padded all leather 3 1/2" wide Perri brand guitar strap from StrapKing.com. Price was only $24.95 with free shipping. I received it today, and it is superior to straps costing over three times as much. Delivery was actually very quick (in light of the fact that this company was hit by hurricane Sandy). It is a very appropriate strap for a LP, in that the padding makes it very comfortable on a heavy guitar. But the ends that attach to the strap buttons are very hard leather that attach firmly to the strap buttons. In fact, I had to use some tools to get them over the strap buttons. So the strap is not likely to drop the guitar (a common problem with LPs) whether a strap lock is used or not. I post this because I think it is good to tell other players about a source with a good product, price, and service. I can't speak for all products this company sells, but their Perri padded leather straps are winners on al counts.
