CHRISTINE REA lived in NW Montana for 14 years and has always enjoyed music and the Native American culture. She effectively combines these two interests in creating beautiful guitar straps. Christine designs and hand crafts custom-made, beaded guitar straps which are worn by friends and some of the well known stars.



Each guitar strap, hand-beaded on a loom, contains as many as 24,000 or more colorful beads. The strap itself is made of top quality cow hide  The ends of the strap are machine sewn and the rest of the guitar strap is hand sewn.

Timothy B. Schmit and Bernie Leadon of the Eagles, George Strait, David Welsh of The Fray and Kenny Loggins are some of the top entertainers who wear Christine's guitar straps to enhance their performance.  You can see some of Timothy B. Schmit's guitar straps on the "Eagles Farewell 1" DVD and their new "How Long" video.

Other entertainers that are enjoying Christine's guitar straps are Chris Rodriguez from Nashville, Tennessee, who formerly played guitar, banjo and background vocals with Keith Urban and Kenny Loggins; Chuck Dunn from The Blues Monsters, Lake Tahoe, California; Rob Quist of Rob Quist and the Great Northern from Kalispell, Montana; and Steve Vertun of Eye Savant from Coto De Caza, California. The "Black Snake" guitar strap was given to the son of folk singer/song writer, David Rea, my cousin, of Portland, Oregon, who was one of the writer's of "Mississippi Queen" sung by Mountain, at his Memorial Tribute.

These custom-made guitar straps can be made with a wide variety of designs. Other items such as conchos can also be added. After consultation, Christine will create the perfect design for you. Find out how a beautiful guitar strap can enhance your stage or home performance.
