      They already make them, out of long wooden beads.

        well... if you can live with a "beady" lower presence shift.

        Remember, there is phase cancellation issues between every pearl, and every strand.

          If you were really cool you could braid a willow strap

            As long as you have an even number of beads, you're ok.

                I remember various configurations of these and similar door hangings from my childhood up until 1981-83 when it went completely faux pas.

                      I can’t stand nylon straps. Too much friction rash. They might incidentally affect my tone by literally rubbing me the wrong way. The SD strap I got in my swag-bag from user group day is really nice though, just like my Fender strap but cooler with the metal SD logo embedded in it. They’re most probably cotton. I also have some nice leather straps with soft lining on the inside. You can’t adjust them on the fly because they work similar to a belt but it’s not a necessity if it’s already at the correct height.

                      This is so much like my “do picks rob your tone?” thread I made as a joke that people read way too far into.

                      The opinions expressed above do not necessarily represent those of the poster and are to be considered suspect at best.

                        Yeah, nylon cuts through my shirt and into my skin. I like those cotton straps, like the SD strap (maybe made by Levy's?). I have a few super-cushion foamy straps, too, and while they don't look as good as a soft leather strap, they are the most comfortable ones I own. I also have one from Couch that I like, too.

                          For sure. Who are nylon straps even for? Turtleneck shirt people??

                          This is exactly how I imagine nylon strap manufacturers think:

                            I think they are cheap to produce, and a cheap investment for a guitarist who doesn't use a strap much. If you regularly stand or sit with a strap, nylon won't work for anyone for very long. I've seen companies use seatbelt material, although that is softer. But I can't imagine anyone sitting in a car thinking 'I want this seatbelt feeling when I am onstage, too'.

                            I absolutely love those super soft leather straps, but I am not very tall, and even at the shortest setting, they are too long.

                              I prefer $10 nylon straps. They allow the strap to glide over my tee shirt effortlessly whereas leather and suede straps get caught up. They are also easier to adjust on the fly when switching guitars. I have a couple of cloth straps I also like and a Levy leather that works for my SG. At the end of the day, it is all about the cheap straps.
