I bought this a few months ago, and used it solid for a month. Then I got a 3 inch strap from my dad which I prefer the feel of. This is a HUGE and thick padded strap. It is VERY manly and does spread the weight out on a heavy bass. The endholes are not destroyed, but they obviously arent mint either. The leather doesnt quite yet have a fully broken in feel to it either, but it isnt too stiff. There are no gouges or scratches on the strap! Lots of padding and very comfortable for long gigs. This is the black one with the brown Levy's emblem. MF sells them for around $59 shipped. I will do $40 SHIPPED Not interested in trades sorry. Here is a stock photo, mine looks the same, but I can take pics if someone really wants them.
