Guitar player extraordinaire.
I developed arthritis in my neck and shoulder after years of landscape work, and I conceived of a leather belt with covered hooks to suspend the guitar from my waist. It worked, but not as well as the Slinger Acoustic Hip Strap. The use of a strap button on one end, velcro on the other, side-snap plastic buckle, and poly webbing throughout made it a lot lighter weight and more adjustable. The fact that the guitar, although supported vertically, tends to fall somewhat forward is not a great problem, given that your shoulder is given a reprieve and your strum/picking arm resting on the bottom bout tends to keep it in place. Takes a bit of getting used to, but all in all a great invention which allows me to continue playing the guitar.
