    ...man, I hate that big orange logo on their straps! I always dye them black to match the strap.

    Yeah, it's late and I'm sleep-deprived.

    I de-brand most of my gear. I buy the product, not the logo. I sharpied out the white "Godin" on my black pickguard. :D

    Yeah, I saw those straps when I was shopping yesterday. They're nice, but I ended up getting the MSS2. I had been using the MSS2-4, which I love, but it's so very wide...4 1/2 inches. Now that I'm working out regularly again, my shoulder doesn't get as sore as it used to so I wanted something thinner. Only thing I don't like about the MSS2 is that big orange logo. I don't mind the logo...I just don't like the orange.

  10. I just took a razor knife, carefully cut the threads and removed the logo patch.

    I did that on one of my MSS2-4's, but it left needle holes and an unsightly cameo-shaped hole.
     
  12. My strap is sort of a chocolate brown color, so the needle holes disappear when viewed from ten feet back or so. I don't know why manufacturers have to put a tacky looking brand in such a conspicuous location, but at least they made it so it can be removed.

    I'd prefer 2 inch, too, but even though I don't get soreness like I used to since I started working out again, 2 inch straps are still a little too narrow for me.

    LOL! Well yeah, officially it's brown. But the overall look ends up being orange.
