    So apparently a new Well-Hung customer, (ok USER) picked up one of my straps over the weekend at the local music shop. He was in town over the weekend on a mini festival tour.



    Jimmy Bowskill, the dude with the triple custom, told the shop owner he LOVED my strap, and was going to put in on the cover of the next album, (I'll believe that when I see it). He's now touring as lead with the Sheepdogs, (I've posted about them before). Bowskill was another one of those early bloomer guitar stars as a kid and has recorded with Canadian heavyweights Jeff Healey and Blue Rodeo, toured with some fellas named Joe B. and Jeff Beck. So, it's fair to say I am fairly pleased he digs my strap. Still, I put a LOT of work into those, and have messaged him on facebook, asking him to pay up! (in the nicest way possible, while offering to outfit the rest of the band, if he does). He picked up one of my Warrior series straps. There was a total 7. Tobijohn has one, and he will tell you it is Fine with a capital "F". I have three left.

    Funny... so Jim-bob needs a strap for the gig, shows up at the local store, picks mine, then hands my friend Jared (the guitar tech at the shop) a backstage pass. Says he should come over, catch up with the road manager and get paid for the strap, as he happened to be carrying no money at the time. Who goes shopping without any money, and since when are backstage passes legal tender?

    I guess maybe if you are a rock star.... LOL! Jared tells me when he went to the venue later in the afternoon, he got to jam with the band in the trailer for about 45 minutes, while they were killing some time/warming up.

    JEALOUS!!!!!!

    Kudos,TVV!

    Rock stars and millionaires never need to carry money... The Beatles never carried money.. Sting doesn't either, and says he frequently annoyed people in the rural town he lived in when he would go to the local pub, etc., forgeting that he didn't have any cash on him.

    Jeez, I'm a legend in my own shower but I still pay up front for my Well Hung staps. Speaking of which, below is my Wall of TVVoodoo, strap mentioned above is sixth from the left.

    Note to Brad: I still have two slots available for future offerings...

    VERY impressive! Glad they are out of reach of your cats
    You could have had three or four more guitars instead!

    Don't take it the wrong way but the straps are well within their reach, they just much prefer digging their little claws into the grill cloth on the amps....

    No need for new digs, I've got an identical set of bi-folds in the guest bedroom so I guess I'm good for sixteen more after the last two spaces in here fill up...

    I'd tell him he only need pay by recommending your straps to other players - hopefully leading to some high profile custom orders....

    I never seem to carry enough money, primarily because I'm always short on cash.

    I like the Sheepdogs a lot, and found them because of you, Brad.
    Glad to see that they're going to be flying your flag on stage!
