FARMINGDALE, NY, January 17, 2007 — There’s something about the Planet Waves collection of woven nylon guitar straps that attracts many guitarists. They don’t want to wait a year to break in a strap, not when Planet Waves’ straps feel, from the get-go, like funky old straps, broken in such that they melt into your body shape. To experience this in a new strap is a rare pleasure and, as it turns out, quite affordable.
Planet Waves is pleased to announce the availability of five new designs in its woven strap collection. All straps are made from soft tubular nylon webbing (which lends that desirable broken-in texture), and feature long-lasting leather ends that will not tear, distort, or stretch.
The new straps join existing collections of exclusive fashion-oriented provactive designs that will appeal across genres and geographic locations. A Union Jack design is perfect for The Who or Oasis enthusiasts. While the Cranium, Voodoo, Skeleton Glass and Hold “Em designs are sure to find plenty of fashion conscious players across any genre.
“The new straps exemplify the spirit of Planet Waves’ commitment to the wide variety of musical styles and player fashions,” comments Brian Vance, Planet Waves Product Manager. We’ve introduced over 60 strap patters in the past couple of years and these new designs are some of the most inventive and unique we’ve ever done.”
The new woven tubular nylon Planet Waves straps will ship in January 2007 and retail for $26.99
