About This Listing

Gabon Ebony Guitar Armrest Natural Finish Luthier Parts For Stringed Instruments.
Quantity offered: 1 piece.
The last picture is an example of this armrest installed on a guitar. These armrests are perfectly smooth and polished for comfort as well as aesthetics. These will fit most acoustic guitars. They have been tested on classical, OM, Grand Auditorium, dreadnought, jumbo and mid-jumbo guitars. The curves fit all perfectly. Will look beautiful and perfect of a fit on a dread body guitar.
The armrests are solid musical graded ebony wood. These armrests are designed to be attached to the edge of the lower bout of a guitar where the strumming arm sits naturally. The armrest not only protects the finish from harmful sweat and ware from movement of the arm, but it also creates a more comfortable rest compared to a typical sharp right angle edge.
This armrest should also improve the sound quality. Place your guitar on your lap face up and strum it once. Now place a few fingers on the top and listen carefully, you will hear a dampening of the tone and a bit of the projection. This is because the top is the "soundboard", the more it resonates, the better the tone, volume, and projection. Imagine how this must sounds when your forearm is resting on the top while playing, dampening such a large area of the top. Testing shows with a resting arm you lose between 15% and 20% of the power and projection!

One of the easiest ways to install is to roll the putty (not provided) into a long string (shape), place it just inside the edge of the armrest, align the armrest on the guitar's top and gently press until you are happy with the adhesion.
Please note the ebony is mostly dark with a little variation of light brown.
