Umbra Guitar Support

Received the Umbra guitar support a couple weeks ago and have not stopped using it since. A perfectly comfortable device that allows for a very relaxed playing position with zero effort required to maintain. Wonderful product.


This is a well made, well engineered product. I have a very unusual style of holding my guitar and the Sagework Umbra has all the adjustments required to satisfy even my unique style. It is a top quality product , easy to install. I plan on many years of playing with my Sagework Umbra.

Happiness is an upright playing position

I am quite tall (192cm) and was developing back pain when playing, because even with a foot rest in optimal position, my back was twisted. Having seen another review by a tall purchaser who was also very satisfied, I contacted Geoff thinking I would need the tall model. He advised me to try the regular model first, as the tall version was at that point not available. That has proven to be excellent advice. For the last month I have been able to sit comfortably to practice for 60-90 minutes without a twinge. The guitar is balanced and secure. The only issue I had was placing the magnets. I attached them according to the instructions, and let them sit for several hours. Several days later they fell off when I was carrying the guitar in its case. I replaced the 3M strips with double sided Gorilla mounting tape which has worked perfectly even when the guitar has been carried on aircraft. Altogether the Umbra support has been an excellent purchase which has helped to restore the enjoyment of playing. I highly recommend it!

Hello, John. We're very glad you're pleased with our support! I'd like to know more about the magnet adhesive strips not holding. If you would, please contact us about this. I'd like to make sure we do everything we can to resolve this problem for you and for anyone who may have the same trouble. Thank you -Geoff Ferdon Sagework
Best Support I've Purchased

I bought an expensive leather strap recommended by my guitar teacher, then I was asked to buy a foot stool to keep my guitar up and stable for both practicing at home and at my lessons. Problem was that in my home and where I go to my lessons all of the chairs have arms that interfere with holding the guitar properly. I had a problem with my guitar took it back to the music store . While in the store I saw a guitar stool, with metal bar for keeping my knee up to rest my guitar in proper position and bought one. Unfortunately the metal foot rest is mounted too high and not comfortable when practicing. Then I saw my online teacher 's guitar sort of floating when neither hand was on the guitar. I sent him an email asking about what I saw, and his guitar always in a proper position. He emailed me about his support, and gave me the SAGEWORK GUITAR SUPPORT site. At first I was skeptical, as to how this would work for me. Everything I've had so far was not working so well when practicing. However, I made a purchase and when my SageWork support arrived I immediately installed it on my guitar. Practicing now with the SAGEWORK support is very comfortable for me. I took it with me to my guitar lesson, and my teacher was also interested in how it was installed snd how well it supported my guitar always at the same angle, and throughout my lesson he took my guitar each time instead of his own my guitar telling me how nice it was for support when playing guitar when one is seated. I love my support and use it NOW 100% of the time! Great guitar support!

Extremely helpful tool

When playing musicals which require fast instrument changes it’s important to make the switches as efficient as possible.
The Sagework umbra makes that possible!
