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"
Although relatively new to Classical guitar, I have tried other, suction cup style, supports. The suction cup supports come loose frequently and at the wrong time (as if there's a good time). Furthermore, the craftsmanship is outstanding. Admittedly, I purchased the Umbra Model because I was unfamiliar with the product. Now that I have one and see how good it is, I will, without hesitation, purchase an Atlas Model the next time.
This is a beautiful product, purchase with absolute confidence.
Super! Recommended by a fellow guitar friend and it's been a gamechanger.
I recently started classical guitar lessons, after years of pootling aroud on the guitar. After the first 90 minute class, with my foot up on a footstool, my body was screaming at me. Twisted pelvis, pinched sciatic nerve, leg going to sleep, the whole nine yards. I knew I could not continue like this, and that my focus on playing was being impacted by my bodily discomfort. After extensive internet searching, I decided to try the Sageworks support. The 30 day guarantee was just what I needed to determine if something like this would help me. I could have gone with a suction cup style, but as a cyclist I learned that it's very hard to repeat the exact position of something that is not locked in. Suction cups allow for a variance in position, the Sageworks model does not. It always goes to the exact same place. It took me about an hour to find the perfect position and to apply it to the guitar. I'm now able to sit and practice for as long as my butt can stand it! I end up in precisely the correct position everytime I pick up the guitar, my leg no longer falls asleep, my feet are flat on the floor, and my body is relaxed. I am 5'4" and thought perhaps I should have gotten the short model, right after I ordered the standard, but the standard fits me just fine. There is no doubt in my mind that I would have given up the pursuit of classical guitar if I had been forced to continue using a foot stool. Fit matters! I also love the way it folds down and fits in the compartment in my guitar case without resetting any measurements. It's a well-designed and well made product and I love that it is made in the USA, too.
Once it has been installed it is very easy to use. Take heed of the warning that comes in the package. The magnets are indeed strong. Caught my finger between the magnets while working to install the product. But overall I am quite pleased.
When I first started learning to play classical guitar in the 70's, the main method used to properly hold the guitar incorporated using a foot stool. This worked well for me for many years. However as I got older and started having issues with my lower back, the use of a foot stool exacerbated my the problem in my lower back. I goggled ways to alleviate the discomfort and saw that people had started using attachable supports to properly place and hold their guitars, keeping both feet squarely planted on the floor. Most of the supports being offered or "touted" on websites used suction cups to attach to the instrument. Further research showed that these silicon materials could ruin the various finishes on my guitars. My Spanish made classical model, a Burguet has a varnish and my Seagull acoustic has a "french" polish. It was reported that using these could affect the finish. Some sites said use a non adhesive "cling sheet" between the guitar and the supports cups. More research said that these "cling sheets" could also damage the finish. More research on my part showed the Sagework support, and so I decided to purchase it. I now have my Burguet and Seagull set up, took 10 minutes per instrument and I am pleased. However I originally purchased the "standard" model and had to purchase the shorter arm to replace the standard. Now my two guitars are setup for the proper playing positions for me.
