Some musicians consider buckle rash and pick marks the sign of a well-played guitar. It shows “character,” they say.

But if you value your instrument and want it to hold its value, you’ll want to preserve its finish with a no-scratch Musicians Belt by A&T Leather.

There’s no exposed buckle to scratch the back of your guitar or banjo. The hand-made leather belt is held securely in place with two metal prongs hidden on the back of the belt.

Choose from several styles ‰ÛÓ from plain to fancy.
