I have an Alligator that's hacked in a different way: I had an extra nut and bridge+saddle made that I can swap myself to use either nylon or metal strings. Have been using it with classical strings ever since because it sounds so much nicer and becomes a really versatile little instrument. Incredibly resonant.

The use of magnets with the palm rest is very clever, I should have thought of that! I've been looking for a way to "fix" it in such a way that I can remove it for playing and put it back easily for protection in the soft-shell case I have. This should do the trick!
