Courtesy of Eva Beneke, I learned of the "GuitarLift", a new style of CG support device made in Germany. I received one on Wednesday night, immediately used it for a 3 hour CG Orchestra practice session, and for a couple of practice hours at home since then. The stability and comfort are simply amazing.
Unlike the more familiar side-mounted leg supports, this one has four suction cups which adhere to the back of the instrument. With nine mounting hole options per side, this really does offer a nearly infinite number of heights and angles to choose from. I've found the cups to be rock-solid, and for instruments with a semi-porous finish the GuitarLift comes with four static-cling type pads you can use. Another perk to the cups is that it frees the back of the guitar to vibrate more fully than when being held against the player's body. There's a 25mm rubber hose which affixes to the base and serves as a wonderful leg rest and anti-slide unit. Did I mention this is extremely stable?
I opted for the clear plexi model, it also comes in black plexi as well. The plexi plates are 4mm thick. There are four sizes of plate, Large, Medium, Half, or Child (which has a smaller base arch as well). I have the Half, though in retrospect I think I might have preferred the medium because I prefer a higher "flamenco-ish" seating posture.
Price is about 78 Euros, made in Germany. Distributors in Germany and in the UK. Nothing for North America as yet, but direct purchases are easily done on line.
