Hi All,

I am the proud owner of a new LP Standard 50's. I am looking for any good strap recommendations for this guitar

Ideally something maybe padded or soft and comfortable as I do have some shoulder isssues

Thanks all and stay safe

there's no right answer to that one -
You also forgot to mention it has to look cool.
|I've got a couple of the thin ones with a sliding pad on them that |I like a lot - Levy's PM25, I think.
|Otherwise most of mine are the single-layer 2.5 or 3" leather.
Pretty much any maker also makes padded ones. poke aound on the online retailer websites to see what's out there, and maybe check out a HGS |(local guitar shop) to see what they have in stock. Try a few different ones to see what you like. |And remember you can always change them out - straps are relatively cheap.

Usually a wider strap is helpful for shoulder problems as it spreads the weight over a larger area. I’ve got a Levi’s 2 layer leather strap for my LP. They make a wide variety of great straps and they have prices to fit most budgets.
