Our Famous Kamikaze Cotton and Leather Guitar Strap!
Please note: We realize that the Kanji (characters) is incorrect but this is the way it was done in the 1980's and what our customers remember. We will soon be doing an accurate Japanese Kamikaze strap.
In the 1980's Japanese culture was very popular and it was fashionable at the time to wear artistic Japanese inspired clothing. Shirts and other clothing were sold with Japanese sayings on them in the traditional Japanese characters.
During the 1980's the Earth III company issued these Kamikaze guitar straps. They were geared toward the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal guitar playing crowd because of the tough and brave Japanese Kamikaze pilots of WW2. Now they are back!
Kamikaze [Japanese, divine wind (from the legendary name of a typhoon that in 1281 saved Japan by destroying the Mongol navy) : kami, divine + kaze, wind.]
This is the vintage style strap our customers love!
This cotton and leather strap is made exactly to our original vintage specifications. The cotton part of the strap is a custom made weave only available from Earth III. You're getting a genuine 100% custom weave cotton guitar strap with 100% genuine cowhide leather end tabs. The front end tabs have two pieces of cowhide leather that have been stitched together which is not normally found at this price point. This provides extra strength that you could probably tow a car with. The strap is also made with metal rivets that add strength plus metal loops that won't warp, chip or break like plastic. Metal loops also make adjusting the strap easier while wearing.
