”5/24 John Mayer Hemp Deadstock Guitar Strap Hat

$58.00

It’s Mayer time, for the very last time! Final Release. Fresh off the stitchery & ready to ship today. Five panel 100% black hemp snapback.

A personal tribute to Mayer, who’s deep musical friendship with Bob Weir gives us so much to be Grateful for. Here’s the story…

In 2011 we crafted a small collection of guitar straps that quickly fell into Mayer’s hands, and then showed up during the Born & Raised live sessions. This particular Deadstock braided strap showed up on the ensuing B&R Tour attached to his butterscotch ’52 Fender Tele. The guitar & strap both soon disappeared for a good minute…until nearly ten years later when the infamous Tele was busted back out on Dead & Co Summer Tour ’22. And sure enough the strap took the Long Strange Trip along with the guitar. Check out the photo gallery for the story in images.

We’ve been collecting these Deadstock textiles for nearly 30 years, repurposing them into small batch goods. The right time to cut/sew always seems to reveal itself. This was once again that time. So we dug through our vintage jacquard collection & managed to find the same roll that we cut John’s original guitar strap from. We fired up the sewing machine & started stitching. We’re super stoked to offer this limited batch of hats. Grab a piece of American music history while the vintage supply lasts.

This jacquard was originally woven in the late 1960’s and has been extremely well cared for over the last 50+ years. It remains in pristine condition. It is the ultra rare 2-inch width characterized by geometric center ovals & classic wide arrow edge work. All cotton with heavy yarn texture. A very rare pattern, and color.

Snapback. One size fits most.

Thank you John…
