A Great Way to Help Players With Back Problems

The only negative I have is that the shorter support doesn’t allow the instrument to be closer to the leg. Otherwise the support is easy to install and adjust. I have a bad back and had difficulty practicing for more than about 30 minutes without back pain. I’m finding that I can now practice for up to two hours without significant back pain. I would recommend this support to anyone wanting to have a better support than simply putting the instrument on their leg.

Very good but can be improved

Pros: easy to put on and off; nice portability. It can be easily folded and kept in the storage of a guitar case.

Cons: not as comfortable as Ergoplay on the leg; installation may not be that easy and might (very unlikely though) cause damage to the guitar. You might want to install it on a less expensive guitar first to get familiar with the installation.

I also own an Ergoplay guitar support. Compared to Ergoplay, Sagework's part (the arc shaped part) where touches the leg is narrower (also harder). Although it doesn't seem a big difference but somehow it's much less comfortable than Ergoplay. I guess the idea was to minimize its size thus maximizing its portability. But maybe it's possible to also provide an option of wider leg support for people who don't mind its wider size but prefer more comfortability.

I'm also hoping the angle between the arc (where touches thre leg) and the two arms can be adjusted freely and finely (not the angle of each individual arm. I know that angle can be adjusted freely and can be fixed by the allen wrench). Currently, there are only certain fixed angles but the best angle for me happens to be somewhere in the middle of two preset angles...

I like this guitar support and recommend it. My rating just shows for me how much it can be improved but it may be perfect for you.

Great solution

I have purchased 4 of these supports, and extra magnets as well. The best supports I have used in my 50 years performing. I have them in my classical and flamenco guitars, my 7-string, and my Stauffer guitar. Will never use anything else.

WARNING!

The instructions do include a warning to be careful when handling the magnets, but I didn’t fully appreciate the risk to the guitar. My advice to would-be purchasers is to consider carefully whether this product is worth the risk of splitting the wood on your guitar. I just shipped my very expensive guitar to the luthier to repair the 4” crack in the side. I won’t use this thing again. On the bright side, one magnet proved to be a perfect solution for holding shut the door to my mailbox.

Dear, Patrick.

I'm very sorry to hear about your guitar! That is terrible to hear. You are the first of thousands that we've heard of with a cracked guitar. The very first lines of the instructions state: 'Neodymium (rare earth) magnetic fields are extremely strong. They must be handled with care to avoid personal injury, damage to the magnets, and damage to your guitar.' Still, though, we will make it more prominent and add a warning note that is visible upon first opening the box in case someone attempts the install without reading the instructions.

Can you tell me what happened? Was the magnet pulled out of your hand and hit the guitar?

Please send us a bill and we will pay for your repairs.

Regards,
Geoff
