Overview of Guitarest Products

The Guitarest brand encompasses two supports:

One is an adjustable, angled arm rest that allows for greater support, stability, comfort and ease of action for the right hand, arm and shoulder.  The second is a leg rest (guitar support) that offers 3 unique angles of adjustment for

individual positioning preferences, again allowing greater support and stability for the guitarist and their instrument. It also features a detachable belt clip that, when attached, keeps the leg rest and guitar securely anchored beside the player's body.
