Nice, Good Job!!!

 

I like the bass hand strap how did you attach it?  Did you use the original hardware?

 

Happy Playing!!!

For the bass strap i use the original parts, but for the shoulder straps i have to order the v-bracket from hohnerusa cuz this is a vintage hohner and it only has for one strap. Im still not finished with the shoulder straps i still need some buckles and lace cuz i ran out of lace, just on the bass strap and shoulders straps i used more than 150 feet of leather lacing. Ill post some pics later.

A friend asked me to make some straps for his Hohner Panther. Here's what I came up with on the first try. I have an old Hohner and will redo my straps also. I haven't been on the forum for a long time. I don't know if this is the best place to post this. Did a search for custom straps and came across this post, so I'm sharing here.
