Gibson Accessories Switchblade Guitar Strap

Gearank Recommendation

The Switchblade appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Straps from June 2017 until August 2019.


Carrying heavy solidbody electric guitars for long periods can be quite the task, thankfully there are comfortable straps like the Gibson Switchblade.

This premium strap features 1/2" thick memory foam inner padding that helps distribute the weight evenly as you play your instrument.

The full-grain leather top adds to the straps overall appeal while the soft garment leather backing adds to the overall comfort.

Also, the Gibson Switchblade comes with a nylon buckle that serves as a quick-release connector, so you can take off the strap easily.

If comfort is high up in your list of priorities, and budget is not an issue then do check out the Gibson Switchblade.


  • Width: 3.5" (At the Padding)
  • Length: 47.5" - 60"
  • Material: 0.5" Thick Memory Foam Pad, Leather End Pieces
  • Design: Full Grain Leather Top, Soft Garment Leather Backing
Unfortunately this is no longer available new in stores, however you can get excellent alternatives which are available in our guide to The Best Guitar Straps.
