John Lennon used the original Vox Black Leather Python Guitar Strap on his Rickenbacker® 325 when he played The Ed Sullivan shows of February 1964. He then gave it to Eric Clapton, who used it during his Cream days in 1967. The original was auctioned by Sotheby's for $4,500 in recent years. This 2" wide reproduction has 25 "armored" chrome plates riveted to the heavy leather strap. 52" long.
