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.

Formerly known as the "Barnett Umbra"
I'm not a classical guitarist but was intrigued by the guitar support when I saw it used by Tatyana Rhzhkova. I prefer to hold a guitar approx chest high, so I always elevate one of my legs. I must have a heavy foot, because I tend to bend guitar foot stools. The Umbra brace is a great solution. I like the availability of additional magnets and adhesive, making it easy to switch the brace between guitars.
Very good product and installation was easy. I probably should have chosen the "short" one, but I'm quite pleased with the standard size. Much more convenient and helpful than any footstool.
Sagework Umbra Magnetic Guitar Support - Standard provides solid support of your guitar while your playing, no more hoping.
great product. Having trouble in adjusting. waiting for direction from Goeb. No one answers the phone you should just delete the phone number on your site everything seems to be by e-mail snail mail moves faster than your e-mail replies. I was referred to you by Classical Guitar Shed.
Hoping to get some answers. Just want to do things right.
I absolutely love it! I have tried many guitar supports, foot stools, and cushions, but nothing compares to the comfort and joy i experience when using this support while playing my beloved handcrafted Benito Huipe.
First of all, it is not permanent and it does not damage your guitar in anyway. The magnets are strong and secure, but can easily be removed if necessary. The support itself is sturdy, looks cool, and can be adjusted many different ways to fit your own personal taste when it comes to guitar position. Once on, the support can be adjusted easily based on whatever chair you are using, so you will never he limited or stuck in an awkward position because the chair you are sitting on is too tall or too short. I can even play sitting on the ground with optimum position and posture... if I have no chair: it is actually quite comfortable. It is also super portable, fits perfectly in the storage space under the neck in my gator classical guitar case.
I would advise however, to be very careful when putting the magnets on the inside of your guitar. Because the magnets are very strong, if you do not hold onto them with a firm grip, the opposing magnet on the outside of the guitar will pull it out of your grip easily. This happened to me when placing the magnet on the upper bout inside, and the resulting smack was very loud and scary. However, I took the magnet off and checked the guitar thoroughly and found that there was no scratch or problem of any kind. The lesson is just be very cautious and careful. In addition,the screws on the adjustment knobs became very hard to turn, but this problem was easily solved with a little anti-seize on the screw and nut. Now the knobs move extremely smooth with no problems.
Aside from the scary magnet story and difficulty with the adjustment knobs, this guitar support is the best. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who loves their guitar and doesn't want to be limited when playing it.
