    Nice comprehensive rundown on the gear. Toanz sound good too. The 59 neck in the bridge of the strat sounds so sweet clean.

    You know nothing about Nirvana's catalog. Check the opening clean tone with a hot rails in a strat. Epic tone.



    The super d in the jag isn't too shabby tho.

    It's all about the black nylon ones. That preference must be because of how I was sort of punk when I started. The wide leather ones thoroughly disgust me.

    I've gotten away from the bite of nylon as I've gotten older. Maybe my ears changed but the sizzle just makes it sound thin, and I wind up compensating with heavier and heavier boots. I have to echo the love for a black leather strap. I've installed the same one on several guitars and I can confirm it works great with every tonewood.

    What I've always been told is the conventional wisdom for metal is although most people go for black nylon straps, you want a nice heavy leather strap (still black) to provide some solid bass but with chrome studs to really bring back that high end bite.

    i like a warm rich tone that the padded, wide, leather strap provides. if you are playing metal or something that needs more edge, i can see why the nylon strap with less body would suit you

    It's all about the cheap black nylon straps. Regular sized but decorated straps are okk, but the wide leather ones really disgust me.

    think how much better your tone could be if you used a better strap!
