Yes, I love mine. I have 2 and want to buy more but I only take 2 guitars to a gig so what's the point? I got both of mine for fairly good deals (never paid more than $30) they are cool patterns and cool/interesting patterns seem to go for more $. Got my first one from a shop in Seattle and 2nd one on eBay. eBay has fairly descent deals for them almost all the time.
Got one and love it? I'm interested in buying one and would like to know the quality. Also - any coupon codes to share..? Thanks in advance.

I like yours even better - it's not backwards.
Erksin's is like mine only backwards.

I dunno - I've never owned a Couch strap. I know, I know... hard to believe, but true. Seems everyone else around here has at least one though. :lol: :facepalm: However, they look kind of thick to me. I'm not sure how I'd feel about that. :idk: I like the old Hootenanny straps. I like the detail and colors of the woven patterns. They were around when I was a kid and first starting out, and they're still popular today. Between those, and the straps Fender used to throw in with their guitars, and some nylon 2" straps, and the occasional leather strap, that's pretty much all I've ever used - it was all cheap! :lol: Now, if you want a Hootenanny strap, it's gonna cost you... especially some of the more famous vintage patterns. Still, like I said in the review, the Souldier's a much better made strap than a vintage Ace or Bobby Lee strap. The leather's thicker and the stitching is much better, and there's more of it. The materials used for the back of the Souldier straps is recycled seatbelt (in a variety of colors); it is tough as nails and won't mar your guitar finish like some of the vintage ones can. The woven fabric is, of course, the same as the vintage straps. Looks great IMO. I'd rather have a new Souldier than a worn out overpriced vintage Ace off of Ebay. But I still can't tell you if it's better than a Couch, or worth the $40 extra (and I'm taking you at your word on that - I have no idea what the Couch straps sell for) - but I suspect that it ultimately comes down to your personal preferences and tastes. Based on the reports I've read from Couch strap owners, I imagine they make very nice straps too. Like I said, they're very popular around HCEF.
worth $40 more than a couch strap?

Thanks for the link - none of them is the one I had my eye on though. They have a pretty big selection - way more than anybody else online. I couldn't find it anyplace else cheaper, so I just bought'd it direct. I can return it if it sucks balls, so no biggie. Thanks for the help people!
http://www.chicagomusicexchange.com/ sells them and they don't charge shipping.
