Fender knows that old school is still cool for many guitarists, and this is why they implement vintage designs in many of their guitars and accessories.

Case in point is the Vintage Tweed Guitar Strap, which features the same material and look used on their popular "Tweed" amps.

Other than its distinct Fender visual appeal and softer tweed feel, this 2" wide guitar strap is not much different from other standard straps in terms of its mechanical design, offering conventional length adjustment, reliability and stability.

Specifications:

  • Width: 2"
  • Length: 44"- 49.5"
  • Material: Classic Tweed Fabric
  • Design: Gold Fender "F" logo

Pros

Almost all reviewers commend the Fender Vintage Tweed Guitar Strap for its great overall build quality. Since it is straightforward, everything is easy to adjust and works as intended. A lot of users also preferred its soft feel over the harder seatbelt like feel of other guitar straps in the same price range. Finally, there are many who are pleased with the straps elegant appearance, which matches their existing vintage gear.

Cons

There were a few who complained that the strap button holes were too tight, requiring a bit more effort to setup. Still, this tight connection is something to be thankful about, because the extra time and effort spent is reciprocated with a more secure attachment to your guitar.

Overall

If you're a Fender fan looking for something affordable, soft and stylish then get the Fender Vintage Tweed Guitar Strap. This was on our recommended list until August 2019 when we performed a major review of guitar straps and found there were more highly rated options which you'll find in our guide to The Best Guitar Straps.
