This is the more economical version of the Atlas Magnetic Guitar Support. Functionally, it is exactly the same, but the wooden parts of the standard model are replaced with Vydyne, a high quality reinforced nylon that is both strong and beautiful. Sagework guitar supports are symmetrical and work for both right or left-handed players.

Review by Allen Matthews:
All as expected, very fine
I have played the guitar for more than 50 years, and I have tried many supports. The Sageworks support is
the only one I know that is both secure and won't damage French polish. I am using it on two guitars now
and am very happy.
Installing the internal magnets was no problem. My only concern is the possibility that they might come loose over time and damage an instrument. However, I have not yet heard of anyone having this problem.
It's difficult to give a review so soon. I can say:
a. The packaging is very impressive
b. It's not as easy to install as the website video suggests, BUT it is completely do-able. The problem is the lower bout (I have big hands). Practice on your second best guitar.
c. If you like a very high footstool, you might be better off with the taller option; I have the standard model with both legs at their extremity, and I wasn't aware that my footstool position was hugely high.
d. It seems very well made, but I haven't found a bolt that the supplied allan key actually tightens. Turns, yes, but not tightens.
e. In the first instance, it's fantastically comfortable.
f. The dual set of magnets - for 2 guitars - is a big plus
g. So far, I'm pleased with it. But not quite confident to give it the 5th star. If in 3 months I'm ordering new magnets for the 3rd guitar, I'll come back and upgrade :-)
Works very well. It far outperforms any of the similar supports that depend on suction cups. The only issues I find troublesome are that the magnets can be hard to place if the sound hole is not big enough. That can be overcome with a little ingenuity, but it is a problem. Another issue is that the 3M Command strips don't hold well if the inside surface of the guitar is rough and unfinished, but that is also solvable. In all the Sageworks is, for me a MUCH better system than any of the others.
The Sagework guitar support makes achieving the right posture and angle of the guitar, utterly effortless. This frees me to concentrate on the myriad other things to be learned! I've only had this for two weeks, and it's already invaluable to me.
The only reason I'm giving this four stars instead of five, is that the documentation makes a lot of assumptions about what they have to explain, and what they don't.
