Elastic guitar strap - IS IT WORTH IT?
 
So I have always wanted to have elastic guitar strap (just so I could f*ck around with my axe like Buckethead), and my granny found some selling in Germany. There are ones selling for maybe 20-30 but they are very poor quality, and there are the ones of 150 which are (according to my granny, she's a modern kind of granny) better quality and won't stretch themselves so easily as the first ones would.

So I'm asking you, GGA, is it worth giving the money - for which I could easily buy some nice pedal or amp - on this awesome elastic strap?
Thanks in advance.
Cheers.

That seems like a huge waste to me.

Lol, Dimarzio makes like $20 straps that Buckethead uses. Why not buy that?

Levi's also makes one.

I don't know why you'd want an elastic strap. Seems highly uncomfortable to me.

They're fun to play with, but the gimmick wears off quickly.

do it. it will make your tone a little more bouncy and will add to the rectifier sag if you have a tube recitifier in your amp.

I have one for my Les Paul, very comfortable, seems to take some of the weight of the guitar.

In what way? I can't imagine it being comfortable that a guitar is "bouncing". =P

it's not bouncy if you're not bouncing it :-)

Probably not, I would just get a levi leather strap...
