It’s about more than just substance over style.

To me, substance is style. And I need mine straight up. I want to see and feel
the proverbial natural wood grain, not have those precious imperfections buried
under some glossy varnish or slick paint job.

Sure, I can appreciate Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound, but too many misguided
people have since taken those walls and built a prison around the essence of
music with one big, overproduced, sterile Pro Tools assembly line.

In my book, lifeless digital perfection has become the greatest imperfection,
with hype and all the sonic trends du jour just more planned obsolescence. The
expiration dates keep coming faster and faster.

Hey, don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to climb on a high horse or tell
anyone else how to live. I’ll leave that gig to the marketing executives. But,
for my money, it’s the paths away from all the frills and ringtones that are
worth traveling. In what I put out and take in, I’m after timeless quality.

Give me core components. Give me raw analog purity. Give me roots music. Give
me something that skilled, dedicated human hands labored over and real sweat
poured down on, whether a well-crafted tune or a custom-made guitar. Give me
Wilco. Give me Keith Richards — on his acoustic. Give me Frank Sinatra in a
small room with one mic, warm acoustics, and a little cigarette smoke.

Style is what you can do with less anyway. Anyone can put on a $5000 Armani
suit. But look at James Dean in jeans and a plain white t-shirt. If you want to
hear straight up style, well, no one with a top-of-the-line Strat and all the
effects pedals in the world has yet to surpass what some of the original blues
players could transmit through a busted, homemade, out-of-tune guitar.

That’s why we’re still listening to their scratchy recordings and probably
always will be — there’s soul in simplicity and enduring power in the authentic.

And newsflash: there’s no ham in Spam and no humanity in Auto-Tune, folks.

That’s why I close my eyes to the packaging, to all the gimmicks and hollow
obsessions with appearances, and just tune into sublime unprocessed sounds
ringing true.

Straight up — no chaser.

All Anthology guitar and bass straps are hand-made with the absolute finest
quality full-grain leathers in the world. Our leathers are chosen for their
ability to fully distribute the weight of the guitar across the strap, for a
more comfortable playing experience on those long gigs.

Our straps are not only great looking; they're also super-comfortable. Between
a top layer of rugged full-grain leather, and a bottom layer of ultra-soft
full-grain leather, we use a high-density, premium padding, to maximize comfort
without sacrificing strength. We give the guitarist the best of both worlds, a
streamlined padded guitar strap. Comfortable and durable with style!

Even better, we use only the strongest industrial grade threads, the same
threads used to make parachutes and airbags. That's strength you can trust.

To top it off, our leather burnishes and beautifies with use. All of our
straps have their natural marks, scrapes and scars, which means they have loads
of raw, rugged personality.
