I had been successfully using a high-quality suction cup based support for years, until I purchased a new classical guitar last year. The old guitar had a gloss finish that the suction cups loved, but my new one had a less shiny surface and the suction cups would not adhere, not even for a little bit. I stopped using the old support and went back to resting my foot on a stool. Since I play for hours each day, my back soon began to object, and I had to cut back on my playing. Then I remembered reading about the Sagework product - found it on the web and ordered one. I followed the mounting instructions carefully and am thrilled with the result - a perfectly positioned guitar that I could keep playing for hours without pain. Although it attaches with magnets the brace feels very secure on the guitar. Some professional players say they don't trust suction supports for performance, but I would trust this one completely. Having the magnets installed inside the guitar means you mount the support in exactly the same position every time; with suction cups you only get approximately the same position. I bought a second set of magnets for yet another new guitar that would not work with suction cups. Now I swap the brace between the two guitars, and I am completely satisfied.
I really like the support. Puts the guitar in a good position to play and still sit in a normal position. Also compact enough to be portable. I s a bit of a nuisance to have unstring or at least totally loosen the strings to place the magnets but that's just a one time issue and really not a deal breaker.
This is the third guitar support that I have purchased so far. None of them come close to the value of the Sagework Umbra Magnetic Guitar Support. I bought the ErgoPlay Tappert Classical Guitar support in 2017. It was a good support but later I had problem with the suction cup. The handle of the suction cup keep breaking. I attempted to reach the ErgoPlay to replace them without success. Then, I bought the Guitar A-Frame Support . This one doesn't slide but it is very clumsy and interfered during performance with its too flexible construction. I went ahead and purchase the Umbra Magnetic. At first, I had to buy a better Velcro adhesive since the one the product came with was not very good. Once I did that and installed the magnets, everything worked perfectly well. I love this support and I would highly recommend it. Don't worry the two magnets do not interfere with sound.
I have big hands though, I had some minor issues inserting them in the sound hole.
This thing is functionally perfect, very stable. The only improvement I can think of might be to add an overall rubberized covering to help protect guitar finish from any accidental contact, as the magnets are amazingly powerful. With care, this won't be a problem. Excellent design, build quality is optimal. The angle adjustable leg rest is inspired.
