How to Measure Guitar Strap’

   

When ordering a GUITAR STRAP we need to know how long the strap needs to be so we can set it up exactly to fit you or the person you are ordering it for. You must determine the measurement in INCHES between the strap button hole (where the strap attaches at the heel of the neck) to the end pin hole (where it attaches at the rear of the guitar). If you have an old strap just lay it out straight on a table and measure the distance between these two holes located at each end of the strap.

If you don’t have an old strap, hold the guitar in a comfortable playing position while standing. With your left hand, hold the front end of a tape measure on the strap button at the heel of the guitar neck as shown in Photo 1. Then have a friend run the tape measure up over your shoulder and down to the end pin button at the rear of the guitar as shown in Photos 2 and 3. This will give you the measurement we need. The rear of the strap has a slotted adjustment in case you decide to change it slightly later on.

How to Measure Your Banjo Strap

   

To measure a Banjo Strap, we need to know the distance (in inches) between the bracket you attach to at the front of the banjo (below the neck) to the bracket at the rear of the banjo below the tailpiece. *PLEASE NOTE: Shelton Banjo straps are designed to work best when attached to the second bracket below the neck and the second bracket below the tailpiece.

To get this measurement, hold the banjo in a comfortable playing position while standing. With your left hand, hold the front end of a tape measure at the second bracket below the neck, as shown in Photo 1. Have a friend run the tape measure up over your shoulder and down to the second bracket below the tail piece, as shown in Photos 2 and 3. If you have an old strap, simply measure it from end to end.
