Phil Thompson

Phil Thompson enjoyed working in the leather company his grandfather formed in Nashville. As a teenager Phil made himself a leather guitar strap in the shop, although the business at the time was devoted to horse accessories. When Martin Guitars asked if the company could make a series of straps, the Thompson family had a discussion on the future of the company and decided to become part of the music industry. Over the years, the Long Hollow Leather Company has grown and now provides a large line of styles to retail customers around the world.
