We use a carve-burning and torching technique to achieve a unique style of pyrography akin to the art of tattoo on wood or leather. We can take imagery provided by you and translate them into a personalized piece or come up with a completely new design with your input.

FAQ: Personalized guitar strap orders
First, check out our portfolio of custom guitar straps
There's no need to stick with the usual tooled leather motifs & patterns you see everywhere else. Our work is done entirely by hand without stamps, so virtually anything can be engraved on your strap, in any style and configuration.
- What's your style?
- Do you want to engrave your name or initials? Your band's name? A custom phrase? -OR- stick with only imagery?
- There is no limit to your design options!
Looking for a gift? Would you like to include a personalized inscription on the face or inside of the strap?
We can sometimes handle rush orders, so please ask!
Strap such as the deer skull theme start at $150.
Straps fully covered with pattern start at $250, with additional costs for custom shapes and inscriptions.
Variations of the country western outlaw styles and more complex pattern fills are $300 and up.
Please ask about your idea, as any design can be adjusted to meet your budget!

About the strap leather
We are currently not cutting our own straps. We use Franklin 3" wide, adjustable up to 56" in length, glove leather straps: comfortable, soft, durable, & work great with pyro-engraving. These are our favorite & the only straps we use ourselves, but we can work on almost any leather strap of YOUR CHOICE!
Brown with gold stitching: you will find most straps in the gallery are this color, as engraving looks best on this shade of brown!
Black with red stitching: great for adding color

Let us take your guitar to the next level, or build a totally custom piece based on your specifications.
Tell us about your existing/dream instrument.
- What's your style?
- Do you want to engrave a classic pattern, name or phrase, or custom artwork?
- Are you looking for a vintage distressed, "road-worn" look?
- What's the existing finish?
- There is no limit to your design options!
WE ARE SORRY: At this time, we don't have the facilities to work on anything but raw, unfinished guitar bodies. No stripping or finishing services are currently available for customer guitars! If you'd like to build a NEW instrument from bottom up, please send us a message to discuss the options!
We can refinish your guitar
This involves partially or completely removing the existing finish to add the pyro-engraved design. Fire is a natural part of the life of wood, representing strength and renewal. The BurnMethod hardens the wood, adding a complex tone all its own. A variety of stains and accent colors can be applied before the wood is sealed and waterproofed with a natural finish such as tung oil. We prefer not to use polymers, which compromise the tone of the guitar and prevent the wood from breathing and aging naturally over time.
From there, it's up to you. No matter the style or sound you're going for, we can easily match it to complete your piece!

Buyer pays exact to/from shipping. Optional insurance available.
Custom orders for everything else
Check out our gallery of accessories & one-offs
We're able to do custom hand-engraving on almost anything made of wood and thicker leathers! If you have something you'd like customized, we can do it -OR- we can source a new item just for you!
We can design leather boots, belts, vests, bracelets, and more. Customization is not limited to pyrography and engraving - we can add color, fabric, snake skin, metal, and other embellishments.
There's no limit to the options, just e.mail us with your idea!
