Post Anybody know the guitar strap George has in these various photos?

The image >> <<

So to explain, I have been a Beatles fan for a while and a fan of their solo/own works. Now for George in 1971, I've noticed he used one guitar in particular and one strap on that guitar in particular. I have always liked the look of the strap and the idea of having the same strap as George. I've come to ask whether or not anyone has information on if the strap is purchasable or if anyone is even making it. Regarding the photos and guitar, I wrote up some information...

The first two photos are from the How Do You Sleep? Takes 5 & 6 on May 26th, 1971 in which John recruited his former bandmate to help record for his new album Imagine.

The second two photos are from when George went on the Dick Cavett Show on November 23rd, 1971 where he shared the stage with his friend Ravi Shankar and with the rock singer Gary Wright and his band The Wonder Wheel to perform Two-Faced Man.

The last two photos are from the Concert For Bangladesh on December 20th, 1971 in which George and previously mentioned Ravi Shankar organized the supergroup benefit concert in order to raise international awareness of, and fund relief for refugees from East Pakistan, following the Bangladesh Liberation War-related genocide.

All of these photos included George with the strap on his formerly Sonic Blue Strat, but it was stripped down to the wood for a more natural look, is first seen when he was on the Dick Cavett Show.

More information about the specific Strat is in this video, it's amazing. >> <<
