Big Top


Action Custom Straps has been designing and making Jimmy Buffett's guitar straps for over 14 years now. Introduced in 2010 , “Big Top” is made by hand here in Indianapolis, IN, one at a time using soft white top grain leather. ”Big Top” features an embroidered and precisely folded body that eliminates any edges. The body is then seamed down the underside.

The “Big Top” strap features a beach scene with a surfboard leaning against a “Big Top” palm tree. This strap has 9 different colors of embroidery thread. “Big Top” also has an embroidered fin on the back side of the strap. Each strap is sewn with a single stitch which distinguishes these straps from most Action Custom Straps. 

At Action Custom Straps we have never cut holes in the body of our straps (which is okay because the leather too soft to be used in this way), so we add an additional back adjustment piece that gives a clean and custom look no matter where the strap is adjusted. This means that soft leather is used where it can be appreciated and stronger leather where it is needed!

“Big Top” is 2 1/2" wide. Our standard length is 44” to 54”. Add 6” for a longer strap or if you need a specific length, no problem and no extra charge. Just let us know in an e-mail. Or give us a call at 800-354-4939 and we will take all the time needed to get it right. Oh, and our ”Big Top” feels as good as it looks!
