I,m very satisfied with this product. A big problem of mine with the guitar support is solved, It works perfectly. My only concern is: is it helthy to have such strong magnets so close to your body?
Support is the key word here. I needed to order a replacement for my Atlas and the Sagework team didn't hesitate to help. The interaction was as thoughtful as the product design. Outstanding.
Was a little concerned about putting the magnet in my guitar, but am quite happy with how the whole mechanism works. Worth it.
Will buy second set of magnets for my second lasso always guitar
I frequently sing while playing the guitar, and only with this accessory have I been able to find an acceptable posture that is simultaneously conducive to both these activities. Holding the guitar horizontally on my right leg with no support or footstool compromises my ability to move up and down the fretboard, and also makes it difficult for me to keep my shoulders back. Holding the guitar on my left leg and using a footstool improves my guitar agility but squishes my diaphragm and therefore compromises my breath support. Before I found Sagework, I discovered that my preferred posture was to balance the guitar on my right left while keeping the neck up (e.g., kind of like Odair Assad), but in practice I never felt completely comfortable doing this, so both my playing and singing were stilted.
I was skeptical that this or any other guitar support would help me because I've spent money in the past on high end accessories (e.g., picks, strings, etc.), and those have had only a modest impact on my sound. However, Sagework's generous return policy persuaded me that I should at least try it.
I'm so glad I did. The Tall Atlas is the best guitar-related purchase I've ever made (other than the guitar itself). It allows me to position the guitar very close to my preferred position, and its magnetic fixtures and sturdy design mean I feel safe while doing so. I have become addicted to the support; after only one practice session, both my playing and singing improved markedly.
One practical piece of advice: Make sure to follow the directions on the "Sizing Options" page. A.k.a., Hold the guitar in your preferred position, and ask a friend to measure the distance directly up from your left thigh to the upper bout of the guitar. I originally neglected to do this and purchased a Standard Size model, but this measurement for me was 8", so if I'd followed the instructions properly, I would have known a priori that I needed the Tall model.
