Need a comfy guitar strap.

I want an inexpensive but extremely comfortable guitar strap, something wide like this: http://a293.ac-images.myspacecdn.co...461171e3584.jpg

What brands make nice and big comfy ones that don't cost an arm and a dick? Doesn't have to be leather, just super comfortable and wide. I have 2 dunlops which are ok but my Charvel is pretty heavy and it gets tiring with these straps after a while.

40 bucks for a strap? Get your mom to sew you one out of fun fur or something, haha...
Actually that's not a terrible idea. Why don't you just glue some sort of padding on the other end of your guitar strap?
I have one of the generic studded Levy's leather strap. It's really big, i picked it up for about 20, it's fairly comfortable.

Oh you cheap bastard. My $1,000 Fender Strat wouldn't be justified hanging in front of me with a nylon strap that's glued together

Well worth every cent.

Can you describe what the underside of the strap is like? Is it soft and slides easily, hard and doesn't slide, etc. And the ends look rather small, would they take some Schaller locking straps?

Most Levy straps are leather or suede (if not both). The underside is usually suede and as a result grips your shoulder/shirt rather than sliding much.

My friend uses one that has fur on the bottom side, sorry that I can't provide you with a source but hopefully you can find one.

I got my dad to make me one in prison....the strap itself is only an inch and a half wide, and made out of thin leather. But my two main guitars are Alder bodied RR's...so they are relatively light.

Hmm I don't really want a gripping suede underside, rather something smooth and soft, do the ones with fur leave lint on your shirts or anything?
