Personally, I wouldn't get a guitar without one again. My last 2 commissions have armrests. They are very comfortable but I never had an issue with pressing hard into the side of the guitar. For me, it protects the French polished tops without having to wear a sleeve and also allows for more volume.souldier wrote:How do you find the normal armrests that come built into many guitars these days?
The armrests that are built in typically do not provide a bevel, there's still a right angle that the forearm lays on. The Abel (clip on) armrest is the only one I've ever seen that actually makes it more comfortable to play.souldier wrote:How do you find the normal armrests that come built into many guitars these days?
