Native Sons Goods Announces Hemp Guitar Straps

Albuquerque, NM (February 25, 2019) -- Native Sons Goods has launched a new line of hemp backed 3" guitar straps designed for style, comfort, and lifelong play. The straps feature luxurious textiles, all metal hardware and a selection of colors for the English Bridle leather ends.

The line of 3" wide guitar straps are constructed of ultra-strong hemp backing that provides comfort and durability that will last a lifetime. Their adjustability and style make them ideal for any guitarist or bassist looking to make a statement.

Guitar Strap Details:

  • 3" wide
  • Made from Organically Grown Hemp
  • Adjustable from 45" to 56"
  • Gorgeous, timeless, and strong English Bridle Leather
  • Durable Metal Hardware, and Rivets
  • Designed for use with Electric, Acoustic, and Bass Guitars

Hallmarks of all Native Sons Goods Straps:

  • Unique Leather End Design- We do not use a stock end leather punch, so you will only find this sleek style and design with us.
  • Strength - If your rivets fail, your strap fails- at Native Sons Goods, we use industrial strength stitches and rivets to ensure a solid fail-proof connection.
  • Sleek and Modern - We finish the straps clean by using two layers of leather and encasing the materials, which also creates superior strength and eliminates bulkiness at the connection.

Native Sons Goods' line of 3" Guitar Straps are available starting at $89.00 online and ship worldwide.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
