    I have 2 really nice leather straps. They are great if you have neck heavy guitars because the back side is kind of sticky keeping the guitar in place. I don't have a neck heavy guitar anymore and I am not liking it that these straps are grabbing on to my shirt. It looks ugly if playing out (I have a cool little gig next week) with the shirt being pulled up and down, here and there. Is there a way to smooth out the back side of leather straps?

    At this point, I'm guessing "No." Maybe you could put one of those shoulder pad things around it - you know, like the one on a duffle bag strap. Of you could go with nylon.

    Put it on inside-out; bingo, smooth lining!

    :cheers:
    As D# knows the DiMarzio ClipLock straps are by far my favorites.

    you will find many sellers on EBAY if you want original Omega, but if I were you, I would just have a custom strap made. It is easy to find one, and for me the quality of original Omega leather strap isnt that nice anyway
