With the armrest in place, the GC41 Deluxe is so much more comfortable to play and so much more enjoyable. I cannot wait for the arrival of another 2 more sets of rosewood to make another 2 more armrests. The new armrest should take care of the wear on the edge of my S.Yairi 950.
It's truly an amazing job for the armrest you have done.
However, personally I don't prefer this add-on. I had tried a few guitars that even designed and built with an armrest. Yes, it provides some comfort underneath but I feel it needs some time to get use to it, and in my very own opinion - the sight is....awful, unmatched. It's like adding feets to the picture of a snake. (Chinese idioms)
For engineering stuff, I love to mod. Even import a 1.3L engine from Japan and down into my 1L Nissan March during those crazy days. But I never like to mod or install add-on to handcrafted stuff like classical Guitar, which I respect them as a form of art piece by its origin. Perhaps, that's the reason why, classical Guitar didn't change much after these years, unlike the electric one. Kind of stubborn with this personal belief. Just a very personal preference.
Nevertheless, of course you can do what you like to your guitar, as long as you're happy with it, and I'm looking forward to your 10 strings conversion program.
