2016 was a big year for us here at ESO Strap. In our second year of business we released 6 new colors, additional lengths and a bass strap offered in 7 colors! It was busy to say the least. However, with all that rad news, the biggest win might just be the two patents we received from the USPTO.
We were issued 2 utility patents for both the contoured shape of the ESO Strap, and fluid motion pick-pocket’s designed to ease the replacement or storage of a guitar pick. Up to this point, these concepts were still “pending” approval. Utility patents can take years to issue and cost a lot of dough. All the nail biting paid off… Also, it’s pretty cool to own some patents as well. Bucket list – Check.
Thanks for all your love and support!
