About Us

“Life is too short to use a cheap guitar strap”

Since 1993, Longhorn Leathers Custom Guitar Straps have been hand made in the USA. Built to last, made from rugged, durable leather and hardware. 

I began building custom straps in Austin, TX, while attending art school, and playing music on 6th Street. Austin musicians were my first customers, but over the last  Twenty-five years, I’ve hand made hundreds of custom straps for players all over the world; from beginners, to Rock and Roll Hall of Famers.  My leather shop is now located in northeastern Massachusetts, once the leather tanning capital of America. I make regular trips to regional leather warehouses as well as those in the Garment District of New York City, so I can see, feel, and smell the leather that I hand select for your future guitar straps.  I also seek out vintage, and unusual, specialty hides for one of a kind projects. For some extraordinary straps, I hand make custom conchos and other metal components, from steel, aluminum, copper, solid brass, or silver.  You won’t find straps like these on the rack in most music stores!
