A neck strap works well.

You might try a guitar support cushion (e.g. the one from Dynarette might work).

I have a Sinsonido and fitted strap pins to it so i could use a standard strap, *very* comfortable.

After reading this, I decided to try a strap. Not wanting to waste money on something that may or may not work, I just tied a cord to the factory screw/strap knobs and adjusted it to mirror an illustration of proper position. I practiced metronome dexterity and scales exercises. After an hour and a half I became aware it was break time. I was having FUN stumbling through these exercises. Yesterday, it was no fun dealing with neck and lower back pain, hand position, and trying to relax after just thirty minutes or so. Although I am very new to classical techniques, I would highly suggest you try it.

Good idea
I like home made straps ... its easy with a little creativity to attach an attractive scarf or soft leather strap to whatever there is to attach it to (at the neck end, a cord under the strings is ok)
