    Default Does anyone recognize this strap?

    https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/a...&thumb=1&stc=1


    I bought this strap some years back to go on my BRW 2-point. I now have another newly acquired BRW oval hole as a stable mate (more pics to follow shortly), and I'd love to find another one. I have done an extensive internet search and can't find anything like it. The optimal attribute is that it has a nice screw-in connection point for the headstock extension.

    I would appreciate any assistance finding another just like this one.

    Thanks!!

    It looks little like an older Sully's Strap. https://sullysstraps.com/ But, there are a lot of folks that build straps using old tack.

    I don’t know about the strap, but as the happy owner of a BRW two-point oval, I’d love to see the side-by-side pictures of both mandolins

    Glad you finally found your oval! It took me a minute to remember that we swapped BRW pics a year ago. Not many ovals out there!

    I think we may have the only 2. I vaguely remember encountering a lady that I thought was half-heartedly trying to sell hers, but I never heard anything of that one again.
