If you have more than one acoustic, the Sageworks is a great piece of kit.

It really isnít that expensive, the Umbra (not wood) is well made, and you can get additional magnets. The Umbra and one set of extra magnets is comparable in price to 2 x ergoplay.

I use it on two guitar and it simply swaps from one to the next. The magnets stay in place and the the adjustment on the support itself is the same, so no fiddling at all.

I store it magnetically attached to my music stand, pop it in the guitar in about 2 second and am good to go.

I've had an original Barnette rest (now Sage) on my Hoffman for several years but it is getting work out an the joints will no longer tighten.

Although the Sage did work, the deep waist of the Hoffman made the unit prone to collapse if too much downward pressure was applied so I'm interested in finding another solution, one that would likely involve suction cups that I do know will harm the Hoffman's finish. Can cling-on film be used as a barrier between the finish and the suction cups of does the film also damage a nitrocellulose finish? Also, does the film lift off the guitar when removing the suction cups?

@lpa53,

I wouldn't bother with suction cups. If I had not been committed to Sagework, I'd definitely check out the Murata GR-2

I'm not sure what you mean, but these photos may help. The 'white' piece is cut from a pair of disposable chopsticks from a Japanese restaurant. In this photo, I leave it 'white' so it's easy to see. But in other copies of my Sagework support, it's painted black.

Also, I was able to make the Sagework to work with my Sinsonido without modifying the Sagework nor the Sinsonido. I ran out of black heat-shrink tubing so one leg is still uncovered.

My Sage is the wood version and that the wood that holds the allen-head screws has cacked and broken and those will no longer tighten. They make replacement parts and I have thought of getting the non-wood versions, that but there's still the problem of this device's instability in a deep waist between the bouts.
