Adding a Custom Guitar Strap

Most fake plastic rockers don’t know this, but the Guitar Hero and Rock Band guitars will accept standard issue guitar straps. The strap pegs are almost the same size and position as a real guitar. You can walk into any guitar store, pick out a custom guitar strap, and use it on your fake plastic guitar.

There are lots of excellent guitar strap choices at Guitar Center. I like the Dunlop Lucky 13 brand of guitar straps so much, I’ve collected all five (well, actually six but who’s counting) models.

Boring black guitar straps suck. A cool custom guitar strap is one of the easiest ways to customize your fake plastic guitar and make it even more rocktacular!

Wow, I did know people were starting to use real straps for fake guitar. I was looking at getting a real strap from these guys http://www.italiastraps.com/custom-guitar-straps.html
Now I think I might get my nephew one for his fake guitars…

Also, check out the straps from the Guitar Hero store. They work on all fake plastic guitars.

(currently on clearance sale at the time I am writing this)

I’ve owned a few and I like these, but they are a tiny bit short for my tastes.
