Thread Name: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrument?
Subject: RE: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrument?
I've never considered putting a name on a strap to be odd. It's no more objectionable to me than having bath linens monogrammed. It can be self-promotional and egotistical, but it can also help identify your guitar at parties and jam sessions where damned near everyone plays nearly identical looking Martin dreadnoughts.
What's weird is having one's name inlayed in mother-of-pearl on a guitar's fingerboard. Now that's blatant self-promotion.
