    Digger the Dog Memorial, Shock & Awe v.ll. Each Shock & Awe included five full feet of khaki green 3" wide 1961 cotton military issue webbing, (800 lb. test). Very nice feel. A random selection of military style badges, (eight or so) with room to sew on your own cool finds. There are now NONE, SOLD OUTremaining, out of 13 made. This is it. There will be none more Shock 'n Awes.

    Look up earlier in the thread to see the awesome day/night difference from a full military grunge relic. It's easy to do yourself, fun too. Again prices included shipping - they went for between 25 and 35 depending on options such as leather inside, and relicing services.

    1. Fighting the Good Fight - SOLD!
    2. KILLED IN ACTION - SOLD
    3. Taken as a Prisoner of War (sold)
    4. SOLD Defending the faith
    5. ORDERS RECEIVED (sold)
    6. ON THE MARCH, SOLD
    7. SOLD (Transfer Imminent)
    8. SOLD Marching on to War

    I will not be offering this "re-issue" again. It was the closest I ever hope to becoming factory, was fun, but I want to move on, artistically.

    You want the TRUTH? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH! Maybe you can. Here are some thoughts on a Shock & Awe by "somewhat respected" :grin: AGF member Longblacktie:

    "My first custom strap, from a true artiste. A+ service, product, shipping, the whole shebang. Definitely my favorite strap, including most awesome looking as well as most comfortable. If I ever have a need for another custom strap (who am I kidding, GAS will attack again soon) I will definitely hit up TVVoodoo first. 40% better, hell no, this is 50% better. Highly recommended. ...Thanks LBT.

    I believe it was Wheelman who wrote me this:

    "Even with this it has made a huge difference in the enjoyability factor of playing the guitar, not only because it reduces the neck heavy aspect but also because the strap is just so comfortable compared to the other I was using. The guitar, like most LP style is on the heavy side, this strap makes the weight much less a factor due to the padding and how wide it is."


    "Dude!!! The strap just arrived and I have to say, you did not disappoint, it's all that and a bag of chips. Thanks so much man, very, very cool."

    Here's a few pics of some pre-relicing/build photos in the Shock & Awe V.II factory

    Leather or pile pad inside

    Badges sewing...

    90269fca890cb01ba10d6e174d3af491.jpg

    Here are three examples of fully relic'd versions. All versions also included a pick-pocket inside a badge handy where you can get at it. I also included a set of my super handy, easy-to-install strap lock washers, for semi-permanent safety, along with EZ instructions on how to install. All badges sewn. All included leather front tabs. Note one purchaser asked me to detail that there is NO back pin hole in these. You make your own, where ever you want it. It means poking a hole in the thick webbing, and utilizing a strap lock. I suggest then you trim off excess with rusty scissors and fray it up. That means, A. they are infinitely adjustable, but B. not so easily changed out from guitar to guitar.

    They look way awesomer in person. Art, if I do say so myself.

    Relicing was variable, as I didn't want to turn folks off. I had a tendency to go a bit overboard on these but only one person has sort of said so. Say light, (rips, tears, stains little blood), or heavy D-Day style such as shown at the top of this post). Shock & Awes also featured this label sewn on the inside of the strap (taken before stains added).

    Again, they are gone I am done with this series there will be none more in the future. For those of you who enlisted into the Shock & Awe Legion, much respect! I hope they give you years of playing pleasure, and Shock & awe your bandmates, jam partners and audiences.

    Thank you AGF. It was fun!

    somewhat late Equinox bump. Too many people call this strap their favorite after receiving one, for you not to consider for yourself, or a friend. Numbers 1,2,4 & 6 still available.

    Purchase & pay by midnight tonight CST, $5 off listed price. Do it for poor old Digger, the brave gear guardian Full-of-Shitzou.

    Brad - have you thought about putting one of these up on eBay, just to see how it goes? AGF is a much more limited customer base than evilbay or some other more frequently trafficked forums (TDPRI, MLP).

    RE: SHOCK & AWE Sell-Down

    Just wanted to let my fellow AGFers know that I put a Shock & Awe on evil-bay for an experiment, my first item for sale there ever. Quite the process. :grin:
    So, if you've had your eye on one, you might be able to get a good deal on one later this week if you'r johnny on the spot. :thumbup:

    Last one. Jump on it like a grenade. Probably won't explode, but you'll look like a hero.

    Of course you know you'll have to do another run, as they were so popular(or something similar). :p
