About Guitar Straps
A guitar strap gives you better control over your instrument so you can play freely while you stand, and this is basically its sole function. Just attach it to the pegs on your guitar, slip it over your neck and shoulder and you're ready to play. One strap is just about as good as the next as long as it fits well, is comfortable, stays attached to your guitar and does its job. What really makes one strap distinctive from another is the way it looks. Some straps are very utilitarian, while others have been made with care to make them look attractive.
Christian guitar straps fall into the latter category. They're decorated with different icons of faith, including doves, fish, and crosses. They're made from assorted fabrics, including nylon and leather, and some are quite elaborately decorated. If you're a Christian music enthusiast, one of these straps might appeal to you.
