Does Its Job Very Well

I bought this to pair with an Epiphone Les Paul (pretty heavy guitar) and this helps take a ton of wear off of your shoulder. Without it the guitar wore my shoulder out after a while, but with it it magically makes the guitar feel lighter. If you have a pretty heavy guitar then this is a must buy.

Awesome Shoulder Gel Pad

Great shoulder gel pad for pressure relief and/or the uncomfortable feeling of a nylon guitar strap with rough edges. Nicely padded and has soft edges for a comfortable fit and experience. The only downside, and this is somewhat minor, it does tend to slide around a bit. But this is also an asset since the guitar neck can be raised and lowered while the shoulder pad stays in place. Nice velcro seam on topside for easy strap installation. This is an awesome shoulder pad for any 2-inch wide guitar strap. May fit on a 2 1/2 inch strap but doubtful on a 3-inch strap.

no presure

Have had mine for a while now, and have yet to feel any weight on my shoulder. Takes the presure off long sessions.

I just purchased this strap pad from SWEETWATER.I needed something more for the strap on my computer plus everything else bag.Being a drummer ,it took a while for the bulb to come on ,and get me to think guitar strap pads.This pad is much larger than it looks in the add,and is a super buy.It really saves wear and tear on the shoulder/neck area!!!

PW-GSP Gel shoulder pad

This thing does what it supposed to do. I would have given it 5 stars but i dont like the fact that once you fix it to your strap, it easyly slides. That doesnt affect when its laying on your shoulder, no problem there at all. I would have just liked for it to stay in the same place so i can just puck it up and throw it over my shoulder. I was practicing with a decent woven strap after a few days my neck and shoulder was aching. The pain went away after i adjusted this gel pad on it. Defenitly worth the money, you can probably take a 4 dollar strap and use it with this pad without any neck or shoulder problems.
