Duane used this guitar strap on his 1950s Gibson Les Paul Standard “Hot Lanta”. The strap was custom-made by Zebo (of Zebo’s Leathers of Sarasota, FL, and the same person who made Duane’s Ring Strap) and John Meeks.

Gregg Allman owned and used one of the replicas of Duane’s Mountain strap, made by Zebo, Kim Hoover, and John Meeks. Photo source: Dena Flows/Flickr

Zebo and John Meeks didn’t make Duane’s original Mountain Strap. Dixie Meadows had it made by a Leather Master in Atlanta, GA. Now the one that Gregg is wearing in the picture above was made by Zebo & his then partner Kim Hoover and I know this as a fact because I own one in that same first series which is #5 of 250.
