Perfect for acoustic electrics due to strap having a bigger hole for that larger strap mount on acoustic electrics. Nice quality and the leather grain is facing away from the neck and makes the strap cling on to your shirt and prevents it from slipping. I love this strap for the price and quality with a Martin logo.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The strap wasn't what I was expecting. The Martin logo is basically an indention in the the leather. Would expect more from Martin. The biggest downside, the leather is soaked in some type oil or perservative, that smells like used motor oil. I have been leaving it out in open air trying to see if it will tone down a bit. Still hasn't after 2 weeks. Everyone knows that the shoulder strap is constantly right under your nose when you play. Stinks so bad I'm using one of my old straps.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
