The world's only magnetic guitar support
“As a student of biomechanics and ergonomics, I’ve found that Sagework Supports offer the most ideal solution of all the designs of supports, braces, straps, and podia available.
The use of rare-earth magnets give a sense of stability and consistency to the placement of the support and the myriad ways in which it can be adjusted to the particular player’s sitting style and anatomy makes it a truly universal device. I feel very balanced, stable and free with this support. I’ve used it consistently for over two years now.
Sagework, Thanks for your Support!”

I originally bought the Sagework guitar support with a Standard Arm. For months I was convinced that for my classical guitar position the Standard arm even at its lowest was still a bit too high. I hesitated to return the support because I assumed I had waited too long to make an exchange for the Short model. At last, I found out that the Standard and Short arms are interchangeable, and that I would not have to buy another complete Sagework guitar support, this time the "Short" model. I then ordered the "Short" arm only. With the hex wrench supplied in the original box, I immediately replaced my Standard arm with the Short arm. I have been using the support ever since without the feeling it was too high. It took only a few minutes to replace the arms. And it cost me only $16 + tx/shipping to get the Short arm, not $76 + tx/shipping to buy a second support. The only regret I have is that I did not learn months earlier that the Standard and Short Arms are interchangeable before my initial purchase of the support. I believe I'm a male of average height. If you are over 6', the Standard might suit you. If you are, say, between 5'9"-5'11", you might want to try the Short when initially buying the support. If necessary, you can always buy the Standard Arm as a separate item should the Short feel...well, too short. :-) PS: I'm saving the Standard Arm in the Sagework box--should I suddenly hit a growth spurt...er, yeah, something like that or meet someone who has a Short and needs a Standard. Cheers.
I am absolutely delighted with the Atlas guitar support. I thought I would need a few days to adjust to the new position, but it literally was a matter of minutes.
I am significantly more relaxed while playing and my entire posture has improved. It really is a remarkably good product. The fact that it is very stable on the guitar is so reassuring compared to my past experience with suction systems. Thanks for creating this wonderful product.
I had my luthier install magnets for the support on four of my classical guitars. It has made a tremendous difference in playing and practicing. I believe lower back problems I suffer from were caused in part or in total buy using a footstool. I tried the pillow, I tried the strap, I tried the suction cup supports. The suction cup support worked for awhile except it marred the guitar finish and would fall of at inopportune moments. The Sageworks are perfect. I’ve been using them for a month now and can’t recommend them highly enough. I particularly enjoy their adjustability. I am very, very pleased with this product.
Very happy with how the support is built, had a question on the magnets and got a reply back on a holiday! Husband loves the design and how it works on multiple guitars. Great product and company! A++++
I have searched so long for the guitar support product. I read the review each of them. Sagework’s review is very high, so I decide to buy the guitar support from Sagework.
I bought an Umbra and two sets magnet set for two of my guitars.
It works very well. I’m very happy what I did. The magnets are so powerful, so when you install them just have to watch your fingers.
Many thanks Sagework! Very good Quality guitar support!
Works great! No more foot rests for me.
This is a fabulous product. I have installed the magnets in each of my classical guitars. The grip is stable and leaves no marks.
I purchased the standard Sagework Guitar Support having tried every other option I was aware of, including the GuitarLift. I found the GuitarLift was very solid and comfortable, but it is not easy to store and move around when gigging. I was also concerned that the suckers could lose their stickiness during a concert. I looked at the Sagework Guitar Support because it would easily fold up and fit into a guitar case.
I found that the standard Sagework Guitar Support's strut was too long to be reliable for a classical guitarist because it had to be fixed at an acute angle to the guitar body and would slip when any pressure was applied downwards. I ordered a replacement (short) strut from Sagework and found that the short strut would fit vertically under the guitar. The support will still collapse when significant downward pressure is applied to the guitar, but I can't see any way around that.
The Sagework Guitar Support is highly adjustable and quite easy to fit. The first thing to do is to determine where to place the support under the guitar so that the sound hole is located centrally. This fact dictates the position of the rear strut and, as you can see in the attached picture, may force you to have the rear strut attached to the guitar at an angle. This is why you shouldn't push down too hard while you are playing - but you shouldn't be doing that anyway, in my view.
One other point: with all of the available guitar supports, I still found that I still needed some sort of footstool to raise my leg. I found that I needed to have my thigh horizontally level to work best. Using the Sagework Guitar Support has removed all of the back ache I previously experienced.
I would recommend the Sagework Guitar Support as a workable and practical solution against all of the alternative solutions - but classical guitarists will probably need the short front strut option.
Oh God, you're playing classical guitar -- with a footstool?? Do you know what that's doing to your lower back? Guitar supports are the only way to go. There are several varieties, but the best are the magnetic supports. The braces will damage the guitar finish over time, and the suction cups don't work well. The magnetic supports are the best designed support, and should be used by all classical guitarists.
I love that you can just buy extra magnets and move the amazing Sagework's from guitar to guitar! well done
I started with a footstool, but it became apparent that my back would not tolerate the twisting necessary to make that work. Then I tried a suction device. Worked great, until it didn't. Count on it popping off at the worst moment.
My teacher suggested the Sagework products. Problems solved. Easily installed (no really- easily). Don't let the installation put you off. There's nothing to it.
The support works perfectly, fits in my case, and holds the guitar perfectly. You can adjust the support easily. It's very well made, and easy on the eyes. I went for the Umbra model, the less expensive black metal version.
You won't regret this purchase!
I've been using a foot stool for years and came across your product in a classical guitar magazine. I purchased the Atlas model and LOVE IT! Anyone who plays classical guitar should own this product!!
Just like the originals, must haves.
Old is not the perfect time to start guitar, this contraption has enabled me to extend my practice. I'll need another as a spare, just in case, just in the case, Dave N.
I have been using foot stools for awhile, and was intrigued by this device. So far it has exceeded my expectations as it is helping my posture and playing positions. Highly recommended!
I am playing fingerstyle on steelstring guitars (guitar rests on the right leg). For about 2 years I am using the standard Umbra support for a jumbo size guitar, but for my OM this support is too large. The short Umbra fits perfectly, playing has become much more relaxed!
Unfortunatly, the short Umbra was not available from a European dealer so I had to order directly from Sagework. Delivery to Germany went well and took only 3 days (DHL).
High quality and well-made. I foresee no issues with the support in the long term. The adjustment options make for a perfect guitar position for optimal playing.
I've never used a support before. My research pointed unambiguously to Sagework as an industry leader. I practice in various places in the house, and it wasn't convenient to bring a footstool with me. This meant that my left foot was propped on all kinds of things: stacks of reference books, paint cans, dry wall compound cans, etc.
With the Sagework support, it's super-portable since it's stuck on the guitar, and I can play in nearly any chair in the house. Really excellent.
If there's a drawback it is that I used to place my guitar balancing on its bottom. Now that the support is on there, it's much heavier on one side so I actually need to prop it on something! :-D
I've been looking for the best guitar support with little success. Sagework is comfortable, easily portable, and looks beautiful as well. I've stopped looking for the best guitar support now.
your sagework guitar support is just what you promised it would be , looks good , well built ,
but it's just not for me , but i had to find out for myself , it works great ,but just not for me .
Order was fast, delivery efficient. Product looks good. Not tried yet (will wait for the next string change. More to come.
Although I haven't used at gig yet due to not having time,
I have installed the magnets and simply love it.
It did take some time to dial it into my liking.
But once i did it was awesome.
It will fit in accessory part of any case, however, if you torque bolts like I did to keep adjustment, it won't.
That's why i minused 1 star because I think this could be redesigned with a quick release lock mechanism
somewhat similar to a quick release for seat on a bicycle or wheel but much smaller
If you plan to use the support with multiple guitars don't cheap out. Just get these. For the price, they are the strongest and most appropriately sized magnets, perfectly spaces, and include everything that you need to properly use their product. I'll admit, I tried 3M taping a couple home depot rare earth magnets in one of my cheaper guitars to use but it's much more difficult to rig together a proper pair, spacing and fixture than it seems. I just ended up buying a spare set here in the end. Sagework put in the time to engineer a well crafted product and the magnet set they paired with the product is perfect.
I actually prefer the substantial feel and all-blackness of the Umbra to the original Atlas wood support. I do have both supports and enjoy the stability, comfort, ease of removing/putting on and portability of Sagework supports. Over the years I have used a great variety of guitar supports but found that when I tried the Sagework supports my first reaction was a sense of relief. Once adjusted properly it does its job unobtrusively and well. When playing, I do not have to think about it at all. BTW - Customer service at Sagework is excellent. An issue I had with my Atlas model support was resolved quickly and easily.
The workmanship that goes into the Sageworks Atlas model is impressive, and really looks good when paired with a high-end instrument. The most noticeable improvement is in the sound quality. Because the guitar body doesn't touch the leg or a supporting pillow, there is very little dampening of the sound. This is immediately apparent when playing. In addition, there is no damage done to the instrument through the use of the magnets. This is an ingenious concept, and allows one to eliminate the pesky footstool. Both feet are on the ground, centered,. For long practice sessions this is the most preferable position. Thank you!
Will buy second set of magnets for my second lasso always guitar
I have recently bought this support. It was a breeze to install. It is very easy to attach and detach. Most importantly, it is so comfortable to play the guitar with this support. No need to carry a foot stool anywhere. It easily adjusts to any chair. Love this product.
Great comfort and positioning of the guitar.
Arrived promptly and very well packaged. Installation of internal magnets was a bit tricky to get straight, due to the instant-sticking command strips. A longer tack time would have been helpful. One of mine was a bit crooked, but the external magnets still hold firm. Really helps guitar and body posture. No more footrest!
Took a couple of tries to get the magnet placement right. Seemed like every time I tried to place one of them, it would twist and land crooked. But with a little perseverance I was able to get it. Might have been just me. Anyway, once that was solved, I’m loving it. Put a second set of magnets on another guitar and now both instruments feel like they land in the exact same comfortable position every time I play. Footstool just became obsolete.
