Bright Strap is too bright for my bass.

    I didn't know if i should put this in the bass section or not, but i couldn't find any other section better suited, so please excuse me if this is wrongly placed. Well, onto the topic.

    I pretty much just got a new Deluxe Active J Bass V (fender), and it's brown sunburst, a beautiful bass, of course i had to get locks and a new strap to fit these locks. i was looking for a plain black strap so it wouldn't draw the eye from the pure beauty of this bass. But the only straps they had that even came close were full leather, Being not of the carnivore type :smug: i try to keep away from the leather promotions as much as possible (even though that may be impossible completely when it comes to straps).

    i ended up buying a planet waves strap with some cards and diamond/spade suites design on it. Generic, oh well, it had red so i figured maybe it matches a bit. (this is all aesthetic at this point). but to my dismay its way too bright. I've been thinking of spraying some black spraypaint over it but dont no if thatll maybe somehow absorb into the grain of the bass if it doesnt completely dry. Any suggestions of straps?

    i know this sounds rediculous, but id really like to present this amazing bass with as much non-tackiness as possible. hoping my playing doesn't do this itself xP

    At first I thought you were saying your guitar strap was effecting your tone.

    Why not just get a plain old nylon weave strap?

    Go with a Levy's Nylon strat. They have some thicker soft ones. (to me, leather is the only real comfortable option)
