Hi I am Nick S. Koukotas, the founder and designer of Double Treble Custom Guitar Straps. I am a fur and leather mechanic, I started learning how to craft fur from my father when I was 14. Using these skills I worked in the fur manufacturing market in New York City for 16 years. I also started playing guitar when I was 15 years old, that is the beginning of the Double Treble story...
Somewhere in the early to mid 1990's I was inspired to make guitar straps after Cesar Diaz, "The Amp Doctor", gave me a strap that Bob Dylan had used. I wanted to preserve this great piece of Rock & Roll memorabilia, but still wanted to use something similar, so I searched music stores in NYC in vain trying to find a high quality leather guitar strap to match its quality. It was then that I realized there was a void in the market for high end, custom guitar straps.
I decided that I would craft my own high quality leather guitar straps. Customers asked for their names and initials and logos on straps so I created the first custom embroidered leather guitar straps. I take great pride in having made guitar straps for some of the greatest guitarists in the world. Paul Barrere , Fred Tackett and Ken Gradney of Little Feat , B.B. King , Billy Gibbons ,Duke Robillard , Rick Derringer , Bernard Allison , Dickey Betts have all used my straps. My greatest joy is when I get a call from a customer telling me that one of my straps really brightened their day. It would be my pleasure to create a custom strap for you. Our NEW Strap Builder technology gives you the opportunity to create and see what you strap will look like before ordering. You can put your name , initials, logo or add stock designs and now have the ability to see what your new strap will look like. Come and join the proud family of Double Treble Custom Guitar Strap owners I personally guarantee your satisfaction.
