Planet Waves Release New Set of Beatles-Themed Straps
(ShackMan | Posted 2011-01-12)
Somebody once told me that you could run a small country off of the profits made by Beatles album sales, memorabilia, and trademarks alone. I don't know if you could run the whole country, but I bet you could use it for a sizable chunk of the budget, and now Planet Waves is adding another series of Beatles tribute-wear in their second and newest line of Beatles guitar straps. After the success of the first set of faux-leather straps sold so well, they decided to make a second line of vegan-friendly woven straps that sport classic Beatles artwork in 4-color designs to celebrate the music and artistry of arguably the most popular band to ever exist.
According to Planet Waves Product Manager Brian Vance, “These new woven straps are a commemorative salute to the true forefathers of rock and roll. The Beatles are simply legendary and one of the main reasons why popular music has become what it is today.”
The Planet Waves Beatles Woven Guitar Straps will carry an MSRP of $39.99 each. For further information on Planet Waves products, please visit www.planetwaves.com.
