Is there an "authentic" Fender bass strap??

    Okay, it's a silly question, but I have a 1970 Jazz Bass and was curious if there's such thing as an "original Fender strap"?

    I know Fender makes those straps with their logo and the headstock on them, so would this have been the strap most likely used on this bass back then?

    Also, if so, they seem to make a lot of different color schemes. I'm guessing it's either the black/yellow/brown or black/yellow/red, so just curious if anyone knows which one is more "authentic."

    Thanks

    Ok here goes, I have a 2000 MIA jazz bass that came with the Fender strap you mention with the Fender name and logo on it.
    I also have a 75RI that came with the skinny strap with like a pad for the shoulder on it. The pad basically slides thru the strap.
