Before shipping, every guitar is given a thorough check including playing through every note, adjusting saddle & nut heights, checking neck relief, fret ends, tuning mechanisms, and finish. You can rest assured that your guitar will be flawless or we'll replace it or refund it and cover all shipping charges.
The ErgoPlay Troster Model offers the ultimate in adjustability. The height and angle of the arms can be adjusted as well as the angle and position of the suction cups relative to the support. Tabs on the suction cups allow easy removal to prevent damage to the guitar finish.
The Troster Model provides the possibility for increased height for taller players. If you prefer your guitar in a lower position, however, we recommend the Tappert model.
Arms folded down, its compact size allows it to fit in many standard hardshell cases. Folded to its minimum size, the Troster fits in an area that is 8.5" x 6" x 3.25".
Includes two ErgoPlay Suction Cup Helpers
Minimum guitar body width: 3.5 inches (89mm)

I started with the Sageworks Umbra and although the design was cool, the adjustability wasn’t there for me. Geoff, at Xguitars let me exchange the Umbra for the Troster. I highly recommend this support. The adjustability is endless and at a turn of a knob, no Allen key needed. I have not had any issues with the suction cups to date and this may have something to do with how the support lines up when attached. A lot of pros I see on YouTube, seem to use the Troster as well. This might be coincidence or not, but I am very happy with this support and how comfortable and stable it is. I’m 6’-2” and the arms have plenty of adjustment both on the high end and low end.
I needed to find a guitar support due to failure of suction cups on my older support. I saw this recommended on youtube and thought I'd give it a try. I use it on an older but very expensive guitar. I think I'd be concerned about using it with a guitar that has a new finish. Also, you should remove it from the guitar after each use. Having said that, I'd rate it very high. Before you use the plastic kling on type sheets that accompany this support, try them on your older, less valuable instrument.
I own two other different guitar supports. One is very compact and convenient but sacrifice stability and adjustability. Another uses a clamping mechanism that gives me anxiety every time I put it on. This Troster unit is by far the most stable support as the suction cups are constantly pushing up against the guitar. It is also very adjustable though the suction cups can be very stiff to adjust. The unit can be quite bulky if you don’t want to lose your final adjustment. Lastly, it's a fantastic experience dealing with Geoff. Thx.
I have tried all sorts of stands, cushions... with mixed results. They are all in my closet at this point.
I ordered the Troster, which takes a bit of trial and error to set up (meaning: That you need to repeatedly adjust each arm until you get the desired setup). I also wound up angling the brackets to situate the guitar a bit closer to my body (to minimize tension, and maximize comfort)
It took a couple of days to do this but once I "got it", I really like the results.
To be honest, I have my classical guitar setup so it also accommodates a strap which I sometimes use while sitting. Once I got the support setup done, I adjusted the strap so I could have the 2 be compatible. ...and I also sometimes play standing as I am into many styles of music and performance situations.
All good....Recommend this device.
This product is excellent for me, being a taller person it offers great support. Even with the added shipping & exchange rate, this was well worth getting for the added comfort of playing without back strain.
