Designed for instruments that have body depths of less than 3.5 inches, such as electric guitars or electric basses.
NOTE: Suction cups do not work on non-gloss finishes. If your finish is not smooth and shiny, you can affix an adhesive film to your guitar that will allow suction cups to adhere more securely, but these films can cause serious damage to your guitar finish.
I've searched extensively for an electric guitar support so that I could play/practice while sitting with the neck up and without being hunched over. There are some out there but none as affordable and none that work as well as the A-Frame. This one is pretty much universal so it will work on my Strat, Les Paul or ES335. If you have a guitar with a non-gloss finish you may need the plastic film. I have a couple of these and highly recommend this support for electric guitars.
I love my a-frame for classical/acoustic guitar, and this version makes it possible to use with my electric guitar. It makes playing soooooo much more comfortable for my body and I should have gotten one long ago. Thanks Xguitars!
I was unable to use the device to establish my guitar in a comfortable, playable position. Rather than anchoring the guitar to a single position with an appropriate height, the device allowed it to slide all over my left leg no matter what settings i tried. Do I have to glue it to my leg?
My apologies for the trouble you're having with your A-Frame MI. I am working with the manufacturer to see if they can provide better instructions.
Bought the A frame mini for a Roland G700, which is about as impossible an instrument as you can try to hold. The body shape forces the neck down, the extra neck brace forces the neck down, etc. The mini can't fit the plastic/wood back on the G700. I even disassembled the mini to try other configurations, but nothing helped. AGAIN, it is not the mini A Frame that is the problem! I put it on a jazz guitar and it has worked perfecly. So, the bottom line is, the mini is a great product, but it doesn't work on a G 700.
