Hey guys! I’ve decided I want a leather strap or two to use with my Les Paul’s.
I’ve got a couple of suede ones, but I would love a leather one (or two).
Red Monkey straps seem to be really nice, I’m in Aus so it’s going to cost a lot.

Thanks!

Where'd you find that Steve? Got a link? Me likey!
Happy to help out, Freddy,

This goes back to 2013, so I am not sure if it's still good...


Here's an excerpt from the email I had with the store owner, you could always call/email him...

Hi Steve
Thanks for your message. I send quite a few GSL5s out to the US so you can order one easily. I don't have any distribution over there so I generally sell them to individuals. The price in the UK is £40 inc VAT (tax).

When sending to the US, I don't have to charge the tax, so the cost is £33.33 plus £15 shipping = £48.33, payable by PayPal to info@stones-music.com. I've never had any feedback on whether local charges, duty or tax would be due at your end but have lots of happy customers so I assume there's nothing extra.

If you wish to go ahead and order one, just make our payment and I'll ship one immediately.

All the best

Mark was great to do business with... I needed a few extra links or my straps. I wrote him and asked how much to send me 5 extra links. He sent then at no cost... not even shipping!

I have 4 of the Italia Leather Straps. Always my first stop.

I never want anything metal or hard on my straps except the strap locks to reduce the chance of dinging my guitars. And quality Thick leather and stitching for decades of reliability.

Italia = purrrrfect!

Contact him to see if shipping can be reasonable.

except the strap locks
I don't even have that anymore.
It's not 1985, I'm not flinging my guitars over my shoulder or swinging them around by the strap.
Bona-Locks seem to do just fine, even on the Lester. The Strat and SG really don't need them at all, but it's extra insurance.
