I was playing a show several weeks ago in Indianapolis, and a fan- DAVE ALLEN- came up to me beforehand and handed me a wonderful hand-made leather guitar strap. Dave makes instrument straps, belts and light leather crafts ("strap't" is his moniker). My new strap will stay with my Lyman guitar and is etched with a lovely dragonfly. Thanks Dave ! and if anyone is interested in contacting him, let me know and I'll send along his info.
