John Frusciante’s Levy’s Guitar Straps
John most often uses Levy’s MSSC8-BLK straps. Interestingly enough, these are regular cotton straps and are relatively cheap when you compare them to the more premium leather straps. For some reason, however, John warmed up to these straps. and used them on every single one of his guitars.
Also, he sometimes uses Guitar Centre straps, which are basically the same thing but with the GC logo on the leather patch instead of Levy’s.

Didn’t he use guitar center straps?
I think you’re right. The ones that he uses have a GC logo on the leather patch – I’m just now seeing it. I also think it’s possible that these are probably manufactured by Levy’s and share everything but the logo, at least it seems as though from the photos. I’m gonna try and contact Levy’s for confirmation.
Well, he used both Levy’s and GC straps, so you are not wrong. https://larabrailss.tumblr.com/post/131963729116/johnfrusciante-john-frusciantes-beard-2008
Alright, cool then! I sent an inquiry to Levy’s. Hopefully, they’ll tell us whether these are identical or not, and then I’ll add the GC strap on a separate page if necessary.
