I am playing fingerstyle on steelstring guitars (guitar rests on the right leg). For about 2 years I am using the standard Umbra support for a jumbo size guitar, but for my OM this support is too large. The short Umbra fits perfectly, playing has become much more relaxed!
Unfortunatly, the short Umbra was not available from a European dealer so I had to order directly from Sagework. Delivery to Germany went well and took only 3 days (DHL).
High quality and well-made. I foresee no issues with the support in the long term. The adjustment options make for a perfect guitar position for optimal playing.
I've never used a support before. My research pointed unambiguously to Sagework as an industry leader. I practice in various places in the house, and it wasn't convenient to bring a footstool with me. This meant that my left foot was propped on all kinds of things: stacks of reference books, paint cans, dry wall compound cans, etc.
With the Sagework support, it's super-portable since it's stuck on the guitar, and I can play in nearly any chair in the house. Really excellent.
If there's a drawback it is that I used to place my guitar balancing on its bottom. Now that the support is on there, it's much heavier on one side so I actually need to prop it on something! :-D
I've been looking for the best guitar support with little success. Sagework is comfortable, easily portable, and looks beautiful as well. I've stopped looking for the best guitar support now.
your sagework guitar support is just what you promised it would be , looks good , well built ,
but it's just not for me , but i had to find out for myself , it works great ,but just not for me .
Order was fast, delivery efficient. Product looks good. Not tried yet (will wait for the next string change. More to come.
Although I haven't used at gig yet due to not having time,
I have installed the magnets and simply love it.
It did take some time to dial it into my liking.
But once i did it was awesome.
It will fit in accessory part of any case, however, if you torque bolts like I did to keep adjustment, it won't.
That's why i minused 1 star because I think this could be redesigned with a quick release lock mechanism
somewhat similar to a quick release for seat on a bicycle or wheel but much smaller
If you plan to use the support with multiple guitars don't cheap out. Just get these. For the price, they are the strongest and most appropriately sized magnets, perfectly spaces, and include everything that you need to properly use their product. I'll admit, I tried 3M taping a couple home depot rare earth magnets in one of my cheaper guitars to use but it's much more difficult to rig together a proper pair, spacing and fixture than it seems. I just ended up buying a spare set here in the end. Sagework put in the time to engineer a well crafted product and the magnet set they paired with the product is perfect.
I actually prefer the substantial feel and all-blackness of the Umbra to the original Atlas wood support. I do have both supports and enjoy the stability, comfort, ease of removing/putting on and portability of Sagework supports. Over the years I have used a great variety of guitar supports but found that when I tried the Sagework supports my first reaction was a sense of relief. Once adjusted properly it does its job unobtrusively and well. When playing, I do not have to think about it at all. BTW - Customer service at Sagework is excellent. An issue I had with my Atlas model support was resolved quickly and easily.
The workmanship that goes into the Sageworks Atlas model is impressive, and really looks good when paired with a high-end instrument. The most noticeable improvement is in the sound quality. Because the guitar body doesn't touch the leg or a supporting pillow, there is very little dampening of the sound. This is immediately apparent when playing. In addition, there is no damage done to the instrument through the use of the magnets. This is an ingenious concept, and allows one to eliminate the pesky footstool. Both feet are on the ground, centered,. For long practice sessions this is the most preferable position. Thank you!
Will buy second set of magnets for my second lasso always guitar
I have recently bought this support. It was a breeze to install. It is very easy to attach and detach. Most importantly, it is so comfortable to play the guitar with this support. No need to carry a foot stool anywhere. It easily adjusts to any chair. Love this product.
Great comfort and positioning of the guitar.
Arrived promptly and very well packaged. Installation of internal magnets was a bit tricky to get straight, due to the instant-sticking command strips. A longer tack time would have been helpful. One of mine was a bit crooked, but the external magnets still hold firm. Really helps guitar and body posture. No more footrest!
Took a couple of tries to get the magnet placement right. Seemed like every time I tried to place one of them, it would twist and land crooked. But with a little perseverance I was able to get it. Might have been just me. Anyway, once that was solved, I’m loving it. Put a second set of magnets on another guitar and now both instruments feel like they land in the exact same comfortable position every time I play. Footstool just became obsolete.
The best product I've used so far. The magnets hold the support very well unlike the other suckers and they do not change the sound as I could read somewhere. The support is adjustable at will. The structure seems solid to me. The product is worth the price, except the excessive customs duties, but sagework guitar supports is not for nothing. Thank you for your professionalism.
Fairly easy installation, very adjustable, very comfortable.
Op een paar kleine dingen na is deze gitaarsteun perfect: de beensteun heeft nogal scherpe hoeken ( zelf afgevijld en gepolijst ) en de kurken steunplaatjes zijn vlak terwijl een zijkant van een gitaar overal een kleine bolling heeft: hier zouden deze plaatjes ahw een beetje hol moeten zijn gelijk aan de bolling van de gitaar: dan zou de steun sterker op de gitaar aangetrokken worden !
Greetings from the Netherlands,
Perfect. very good product.
Much more stable, adjustable, and secure than any other support I have used. Installation was easy enough but my wife had to do it since my hands wouldn't fit through the sound hole. The only down side is the cost of extra magnets for use on multiple guitars. For those of us with a number of guitars, and guitarists do love to collect guitars, this makes this a very expensive option. Other supports are easily transferable from one guitar to another. That being said, the support does it's job so well I still give it 5 stars.
Order cam quickly and with all the items I requested.
Thank you for the prompt service.
This is a really nicely made piece of gear. Works exactly as advertised. Extremely adjustable and comfortable.
Easy to install and works well. Well worth the price!
I have 2 guitars. Great & EZ switch between them.
