Gibson has held a reputation for premium music gear since its earliest days. The high standards it upholds don’t just apply to its guitars, either. Alongside its instruments, the brand produces a comprehensive range of excellent accessories, of which, the Gibson Switchblade Guitar Strap is a great example.
This premium strap combines classic materials and design, with modern touches and innovation. The strap has an outer covering of full-grain leather, with wide, leather pad, and garment leather backing, completed by detail stitching and Gibson logo.
Beneath this, however, is memory foam of ½” thickness. This, space age material warms with body heat, and forms to body contours, minimizing pressure points, and distributing weight more evenly. The upshot is, within a guitar strap, it provides unparalleled comfort, particularly when playing heavy, solid-bodied guitars.
Aside from the memory foam core, the Switchblade has an elastic design. Two cleverly designed nylon buckles are attached to the main ‘body’ of the strap by elastic material- adding further to comfort levels.
The buckles, conveniently, have a quick release mechanism, making it easy to remove the strap without having to lift it over your head.
At 3.5” wide, the Switchblade distributes the weight of the attached instrument comfortably over the contact point on the shoulder, and with a maximum length of 60”, it will suit all but the biggest of players.
