Hey guys,
I've been shopping for a strap to go with my new Special SH thats on its way, and I came across this one, only to find that it apparently has been discontinued not too long ago. I found that they still make it in a lighter brown color, but I'm specifically needing a black strap.
Thru browsing random photos on the forum, I noticed that there are more than a few people that have this strap, clearly purchased when they were selling them not too long ago. So to any of you that have this strap, would you be interested in selling it to a fellow PRS fan to go with my first PRS guitar? If so, please do let me know, I'd be very appreciative. Thank you 🙂

I haven't ever had that one but it looks nice.

I might just order one!

You may want to search around for other retailers who may still have some in stock. Just because it is discontinued, and zzounds does not have any, does not mean other retailers to do not still have some. Nothing wrong with reaching out here, just saying that there may be others available!! Best wishes in finding it ;~))
 
I have one in black and two in the lighter brown. The lighter brows were purchased subsequent to the black because I could not find black. Sorry I’m not selling, but can confirm they are excellent straps.

I have that exact strap (bought from Zzounds about 5 years ago). It’s a great strap - very supple leather.

Unfortunately don’t want to part with it, but if I did, it would be yours.

Just an fyi… I did need to get a aftermarket extension piece, as I’m 6’4”, and it was a tad short in its longest setting. Don't know how tall you are.
 
The good wife bought me this for Christmas, a nice surprise.
So I have not used it much yet obviously but can confirm very nicely made and at 5'11" it's fine for me.
Jump on one of the ones available elsewhere as shown, you will not regret it.

I hear ya. But I've actually been searching online for a month straight, with every possible variation of description on Google search (and even other search engines) and have not been able to find it for sale anywhere online 😕

Thanks Dirty_Boogie, I'm 6'1", and I dont like my strap particularly long. I'd say falling somewhere just above my hip, kinda lower stomach area.
 
Do you think you'll want a padded strap for a SSH? Doesn't seem to me it would be heavy enough to warrant one. Though, each one of us is differnet..

Haven't seen a pic of your guitar but I've found the tan colors look good with the natural binding of PRS.

Here's the guitar I just purchased....


And I dont know, maybe your right. Honestly the reason I gravitated towards this black PRS strap was because I like my straps to be simple and clean (to not distract from the guitar and let it be the focus), but high quality. So it really isn't for a weight issue, it just looked more comfortable than a thin nylon or suede strap. And since its really the only PRS strap thats leather, doesn't have different colored stitching (which I also don't particularly care for), has a simple but quality design, has just the also simple but clean "PRS logo" and nothing else, and looked comfortable, it was appealing to me.

However since it looks like I'm not going to have much luck tracking one down, I went on the Levy's Leathers website (saw a lot of good things posted about them), and found one very similar (minus the PRS logo of course which is a bit of a bummer), that's also black leather and just perhaps a little thinner (but still slightly padded), just a little less wide, and is built just as good if not better than the PRS one, in terms of leather quality and overall construction. They are a bit pricey, but for what I spent on the guitar, I feel like a good strap compliments the whole package well.

I hadn't given any thought to what the brown version of the PRS strap I posted about would look like with my guitar. I guess I just automatically went straight to black out of habit. But maybe I need to give some thought to that also...?? But thanks for the comment SinSir, and I'm sure whatever I end up going with, knowing me, I'll end up being happy with. Just need to break down all the available options now and decide 🤔
