Python guitar strap
John Lennon's Vox Python guitar strap is an iconic accessory in the history of music. Designed in 1964 by Dick Denney and Tom Jennings of VOX, the python-skin strap with metal scales became Lennon's choice to accompany his 12-string Rickenbacker 325 guitar.
The Vox Python guitar strap was created at Lennon's request, who wanted a unique and eye-catching strap to complement his style. With its python skin design and scales, the strap was a huge success.
Two versions of the strap were made, one in black with chrome metal parts and the other in brown with gold scales. Lennon chose the black and chrome version and used it for a while, although as Dick Denney admitted, the strap was a bit heavy.
