Formerly known as the "Barnett Umbra"
I love this support. It is very well designed and is very well made. It really help keep the guitar in place without any strap getting in the way or irritating your neck. The design with the magnet is ingenious. Love how you can just remove the support by yanking on it so you can put the guitar in the case and then just snap the support back on when you need to play.
I purchased the Umbra model for my 2002 Taylor NS32. Regular supports that affix by suction cup didn't work on that guitar because of the wood and the finish, and after experimenting with several other ways to elevate the guitar (Dynarette cushion, bean bags, etc.) I decided to give the Sagework support a try after seeing a video review on Bradford Werner's web site. The Sagework support delivers. It's easy enough to set up (read the directions!) and provides a very stable base for the classical guitar.
Well conceived, designed, and manufactured. It is so adjustable and stable I forget it is there, and I've never been able to say that before! Thank you Sagework
I found this particular style of guitar support very accommodating and easy to set up. I am still tweaking some positioning with it as there are so many options to try. It took me awhile to make the decision to go with a guitar support because I thought that it was sacrilegious not to use a footstool in classical guitar. But after seeing other guitarists in the classical guitar orchestra I played in, use various kinds of supports, and me being so uncomfortable in my hip and shoulder, I inquired as to how they felt about their guitar supports. Also, since I just signed up with The Woodshed Classic guitar program, I have found a great review by its instructor Allen Matthews and many reviews by other classical guitar professionals. In my short time of using the Sagework Umber Support I have found it to be very comfortable and it has helped me with proper positioning of my guitar. Most definitely worth it. I also purchased a second set of magnets for my other classical guitar. I only wish they came with a forth removable sticker. I will search in some stores for one.
I've tried a few of the alternatives as far as supports go, the old reliable footstool, but the Sagework support is by far the most comfortable, and sturdy feeling device on the market. I actually enjoy it so much I've ordered a second and am just waiting for it to ship out now. Hopefully it ships out soon! I can't wait to install it on my newest guitar =)
