A comfortable instrument is a joy to play. I offer a couple
of simple features that can ease some of the discomfort often
associated with prolonged guitar playing.
One simple feature is my "ComfyCorner". This is a permanently attached
armrest which actually wraps around the edge of the
guitar. Gone is the painful crease that often develops
on the forearm after prolonged playing. The ComfyCorner
also slightly elevates the arm off the soundboard and
reduces soundboard damping.
Another solution is The Manzer Wedge. Originally developed
by Linda Manzer over 20 years ago, this feature involves
tapering the body of the guitar from treble side to
bass side. The result is a guitar which is much thinner
under the right arm, thereby easing arm and shoulder
