This strap is gorgeous, and it seems like it would be very comfortable to wear. Unfortunately for me though, I have an Epiphone DR-500MCE Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar with one of those large combination jack/strap button on the bottom, and I've had absolutely no success at all in getting this strap to work with it.
I specifically chose this strap after viewing Neotech's online video, in which they clearly describe how this strap can be made to fit over larger strap buttons by either soaking the rubber end-piece in hot water until it becomes malleable enough to stretch, or by drilling the hole until it's big enough. So when the strap arrived and didn't immediately fit on my guitar, that's exactly the procedure I followed.
BAD NEWS: Despite soaking it in hot water multiple times, and after carefully and gradually drilling out the rubber center hole, I was still unable to get the end-piece to fit over my jack/strap combo button. It's very disappointing to me actually, because I really loved the quick-release function of this particular strap.
GOOD NEWS: Once I explained the problem to Amazon, they took good care of me and gave me a full and fast refund without any hesitation. Even though this specific strap hasn't worked out well for me, I am actually so impressed with the quality of it that I think I'm going to go ahead and order the Neotech 8223182 Slimline Strap, Acoustic End Pin Jack, Brown Leather. Although that model doesn't have the quick-release function that I had set my heart on, I'll be absolutely thrilled if it fits my guitar.
BOTTOM LINE: The strap itself is of excellent quality and will be a great choice for you IF it fits your guitar...but if you happen to have an Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE, then this particular version of the strap will not work for you and you should look elsewhere.
So there you have it. I hope you found this review helpful. Happy shopping!
