I have tried most of the available guitar supports and this is the third Umbra I have bought; meaning I really like it.
The advantage, to me, of the Umbra model is that it is easy to pack (being small) and highly configurable in all directions. This makes it work in every situation and I think this cannot be said about other support types.
I highly recommend this guitar support.
Nice to be able to switch out for sizing.
Sageworks came up with an ingenious design with this support! It's the only thing I've tried over the years that is so stable and consistent. Love the adjustability in all directions and the ability to "build' on it with parts.
Adhesive on magnets could be a bit stronger, but that's a quibble.
I had used a support that relied on suction cups to attach to my beautiful Santa Cruz 00-SKYE guitar. Sadly the suctions cups damaged the finish! I searched and discovered Sageworks. Not only is it easier to attached and smaller to store, it does NOT damage the finish! I have since bought one for my Classical and a third for my Santa Cruz 000 custom. Then I could not resist upgrading the one for Santa Cruz custom with these beautiful wood arms. Perfect!!
Excellent and fast service
Looks fantastic, super easy to install. I'll never use a footstool again.
I sent two messages one week ago about a problem I am having with the Umbra support. I have been waiting for your response. Please respond to my message! I cannot find a telephone number for your company listed on your website, otherwise I would call you. I appreciate your attention to this request. Vivian Ecker
For years, I have tried to find and stabilize that "perfect playing position" with the use of either a footstool or some cumbersome guitar support. Nothing ever "fit the bill." The beauty of the sageworks support is that once it is adjusted to your desired position, it is consistent and stable. This was a genius invention!
After contacting the crew at Sageworks, my older "slipping" arm was easily replaced. Works like brand new again! Thanks!!!
It's a great product. Looks great and works like a dream. My first installation was a bit off and my left shoulder was getting tired quickly. I took the magnet out to adjust it and had to dig around my house for more tape strips. A few more of those would be great.
Excellent product and relatively easy to install - think person of 5ft 10 would prefer standard to tall midel
Definite five star rated product. Very well made and thoughtful design. Package presentation is awesome as well. Had difficulty fitting my meat hook into the sound hole. Local luthier did it for me. At 6’2” best to get the Tall option. Excellent choice for guitar support!!!!
Umbra is well made, easy to install the magnets in two guitars. Wish I had bought the shorter support, may yet do that. Easier to use than other supports which rely on suction cups or pillows.
This is a great guitar support is is a quality piece of kit. It has plenty of adjustment to get the guitar into just the right position. I did end up changing the short arm out for a standard length model. My hands/arms are large and it was impossible for me to get my hands into the sound hole on my guitar, but my 12 year old son was able to help me install it successfully. So much better than the suction cup equipped supports that I have tried.
I don't usually review products but I am so satisfied with the Umbra that I decided to give my 2 cents worth. The support is very adjustable allowing you to find a position that's just right for your body type and playing style. This has helped me play longer while dealing a bad back. The support also provides a super stable guitar which has improved my playing which adds to the fun.
I love this guitar support. It helps support my back and posture as I am playing way better than other supports or footstools. It also helps me to play more fluidly and beautifully. Thank you for such a great product!
My multiple foot rests are now in the garage and my back does not hurt. Fits nicely in the small compartment under the neck in the case. Don't have to worry about a suction cup failing. Looks rather elegant.
Not much else to add.
I've tried SAGEWORK guitar support and I must say, this is a beautiful piece of art. Its very strong and stable, and bring a lot of possibilities to get a better position on the guitar.
I haven’t yet received this item. Tracking indicates that it has been stuck in a town two hours away for about two weeks. This is due to our !?;/&$@@;! so-called President’s attack on the Postal service. Not your fault.
I have installed magnets in two guitars already and want to put this set in a third. Your guitar support is the absolute BEST accessory I’ve purchased to enhance my guitar obsession.
Magnets are really strong. A little tricky to install the first time. Mine did not line up right and I need to remove them and try again. I'm just waiting till I need to change strings because I think it will be a lot easier to do when the strings are removed as opposed to just loosened.
Fantastic! Comfortable and portable. Highly recommend.
The folks at Sagework can’t be beat. Use their Atlas standard support on all my guitars.
Good product. A little tricky to attach the magnets properly the first time. If it could be made a little lighter it would be ideal.
