Action Custom Straps has been designing and making Jimmy Buffett's guitar straps for over 14 years now. “Fins up!” was added in 2010 and is Jimmy's main strap seen on his Fender Tele. “Fins up!” is made by hand here in Indianapolis, IN, one at a time using soft white top grain leather. “Fins up!” features an embroidered and precisely folded body that eliminates any edges. The body is then seamed down the underside.
The “Fins up!”
strap features text in black thread while the fin is embroidered in silver metallic thread with dark gray and pewter thread as accent. The waves are embroidered in blue thread. “Fins up!”
also has a slightly smaller embroidered fin on the back side of the strap.
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. Soft leather is used where it can be appreciated and stronger leather where it is needed! After the strap is assembled, each strap is sewn with a single stitch which distinguishes these straps from most Action Custom Straps.
“Fins up!” 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.
