    Needed a well-made, wide strap for a heavy bass. This one does it. Perfect.

    Levy's padded strap

    I bought this strap to ease the weight of my 10.5 lb. Les Paul. It is by far the most comfortable strap I own. The LP feels a lot lighter and my shoulder is happy. BTW it is excellent quality and looks much more expensive then it really is. I will recommend this to anyone who wants to hold their instrument more comfortably with style.

    Great Strap

    This is my second Levy's M4GF 3.5" Padded Leather Guitar Strap. I have a brown strap, and wanted a black one. Since I have tried this strap and like the quality and comfort of it, I went with what I knew was a good strap at a good price.

    Very Comfortable.

    This strap is comfortable and looks nice. It's not a fancy strap, but is well made, so it looks good. I already had the brown one for my Fender, and it held the weight of my new Les Paul well. I got the Black one to match the Black/Silver Burst color of the Les Paul.

    That's the ticket!

    I've owned a lot of guitar straps, never spent more than $20 on one though--I found out you get what you pay for! VERY comfortable, no adjustment issues. Worth every penny.

    Very comfortable guitar strap!

    Very comfortable! I use it on a big old dreadnaught guitar.
    Feels nice and secure. Doesn't slip o my shoulder.
    Worth every penny.

    Great Strap!

    This strap is well worth the money. The width and padding make it superbly comfortable for long practice sessions, or long gigs. The leather is of top quality. The strap is very soft, and keeps it's form/shape. So far, it's the best strap I have owned. I highly recommend this strap for anyone with a bass, or heavy guitar. I own a Les Paul that has not been chambered to reduce the weight, and this strap makes it as comfortable to wear as my Stratocaster, or any of my acoustic guitars. Buy one, you won't regret it!

    wanted to try wide without padding.

    Happy with the wide strap so far, Its soft too.

    Great strap, well made, very comfortable. Perfect for that new Precision bass I just bought from Sweetwater. I didn't put 5 stars only because it seems silly to say I was "blown away" by a strap, but it is a great, quality leather strap that is made to last a lifetime.

    Comfortable, altough a little wide for electric guitars

    This is a great strap, well made and comfortable, reducing the heavy feeling of a solid body guitar on your shoulder; however, it looks a little too wide for an electric guitar. It looks better on acoustic guitars, but I see this strap more for a bass guitar. I think a narrower 2.5in strap would be better for looks AND comfort. Anyway, if you're going for comfort, it's a good choice, and I'm still using it on my Gretsch.

    Very Comfortable

    Great Strap. Very soft leather and the pad really makes a difference. The only thing I don't like about all rawhide & suede straps is that they tend to grab your shirt. If you move your Bass or guitar position a lot while playing, the strap does not slide over your shoulder. It holds on to your shirt and pulls it up or down. Other than that it's worth the price for the comfort. I have a heavy bass and I used to get shoulder fatigue with the standard 2 1/2 inch strap. I can play all day with this one!

    Well-made, comfortable strap

    Well, it's just a strap - but it is really well made and very comfortable to use for long practices and shows.

    My only beef (and this goes for all straps I've seen) is that those of us who use Schaller-type straplocks (Rickenbacker owners have little choice) have to ream out the holes to make them fit. What we really need are straps with holes 3/8" in diameter, and no slots at all.

    Other than that, a great strap for the money.

    Not padded.

    It's not a bad strap, nice looking. But any hint of padding is on the outside and inneffective.

    Ok, so I was looking for a nice, wide, padded strap and this looked really good. The quality is top notch for sure, but not really padded too speak of. Giving this strap an average rating just because it is being marketed as "padded" but really it is not padded much. I have seen some very nice padded straps and thought this one would be the ticket. I am still using it, don't get me wrong there. It is a nice strap and is very well made, just wasn't quite what I was looking for. This is one of those items I would highly recommend you buy at a store where you can try it, feel it, hang a ten pound bass on it to see if its what you want - then, maybe leave and buy it online. Just kidding - you wont save much buying online vs in store. This is a nice strap, just not really padded the way they make it sound.
