I like it, minus the sales hyperbole.

It doesn't quite match the color of my '69.

It looks better on my custom Jag-Stang.

By the way, they put the stripe at the top..... not the bottom. Not like you can't flip it, but still...

Thanks for the photos. It's a shame the shades of blue don't match stupid Fender.

The stripe being at the 'top' of the strap makes sense to me because it's visible from the front when the guitar is being played.

No offence to HNB but they look worse on the guitar than on the advertisement.

No offense taken. Smile I didn't design them, just got a couple to see how they look. The white doesn't match either. The strap is white and black and the guitar is yellowed white with blue stripes. Smile

Throw the blue one in the washing machine with some super-cheap green t-shirts.
