I have relatively thin wrists and forearms, so I didn't find it too difficult. It was a question of getting in the correct position. For me, I found it worked best to have the guitar on its back. Also, I had taken off all but the first string.souldier wrote:I recently got a barnett support and he includes a diagram illustrating the exact thing that you have mentioned. My problem is I find it difficult to get the magnets further down the lower bout since it is such a tight space. What approach do you take?
The direction that Kris gives to have the support in position on the guitar when you install the magnet helps in this regard as it tends to pull the magnet into the correct position. You might find it helpful to have helper with thin wrists/arms to help.My other problem I ran into was that when trying to place the magnet with the adhesive strip, the magnet stuck to the side in a crooked position which creates a problem because the support also wants to go on crooked. Anyone have some good tips on a more accurate and effortless installation? I have a new guitar coming in soon and want to make sure I get it right.
