This is the more economical version of the beautifully genius Sagework (formerly Barnett) 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.
We here at XGuitars LOVE this support! In all honesty, we were a bit dubious of the magnet system... until we tried one. Doubts Gone! They work flawlessly and safely. As shown in the video below, once the interior magnets are installed, the support is incredibly stable, fully adjustable, easy to install/remove, and completely safe for all guitar finishes. And being designed by Randy Meinert and luthier Kris Barnett, they are true works of art. We have the latest models of these supports currently in stock.
Sagework Guitar Supports have several unique design features that make them the most reliable, adjustable, and comfortable support on the market. The most prominent and advanced feature is the implementation of rare-earth magnets to safely and reliably attach the support to the instrument. The use of magnets ensures secure attachment but also allows the support to "find" the proper location on the instrument instantaneously through magnetic attraction. The use of magnets is only one of many features that sets this support apart from others.
WARNING: The magnets are VERY strong and caution must be used during the initial installation and while attaching and removing the support. If meticulous care is not taken, damage to your guitar could result.
WARNING: Do not use magnetic guitar supports if you have a pacemaker or similar device.

Great quality. Premium packaging. Excellent installation instructions
I've been using the Sagework Umbra for three weeks now and I have been very pleased with how well it works and how easy it is to get the guitar into position. In the past, I felt like I was always fiddling with the angle of the guitar and how I held it. With the Sagework, that is all gone. Once I dialed in the right position for the support, all the guesswork and repositioning are gone. It is not an inexpensive support, but the cost seems justified by the quality and how well it works. It is also worth noting that it comes packed in a very nice box with custom foam inserts.
The experience with XGuitars was also very good. Shipping was fast, and the hand-signed note from Geoff was a really nice personal touch you never see.
Does not permanently alter the guitar, easy (enough) to install, and very adjustable. I was having hip and lower back issue due to raising my left leg on foot rest, this sits the guitar in really the perfect playing position without having my hip feel impinged. Now Im not comfortable playing with out it. FANTASTIC product.
I have a guitar with a smaller than normal sound hole (Cordoba Esteso) so I had a little difficulty mounting the internal magnets. But it is certainly doable and you only have to do it once. After I got it installed, I absolutely love it. It is the only guitar support that I have used which I would not want to be without. I have seen a few guitars in which the attachment points did mar the finish a little after long term use, so I got little pieces of silk and wrapped them around the pads like little boots, attached with rubber bands. That works great. I highly recommend this product and the delivery was fast and problem free.
This support works very well, it is well made and very easy to install. Highly recommend!
