I got an ErgoPlay Troster, sawed off both ends to make it shorter and thus lower for me. Yet the headstock is still much higher than my eye level.
With Scott's post above, I figure that the childsize Tappert may work to bring the guitar lower bout closer to the left thigh, and with child size Tappert's shorter length, the headstock would be lowered to the desired eye level.
Please post some pictures of your modified Troster. Also, I haven't tried the child Tappert on a full size CG yet. My wife and I have quite the collection of guitar supports now. We have 4 Ergoplay supports: Troster, Tappert, child Tappert, and professional, which is their entry level support.
And we also have a Murata and an Oasis cushion like Dynarette.
I just read another thread about the Guitar Lift. That one looks like it might be with a look. Also, I wasn't aware of the deOro, until chatting with some of you in this thread. This thread may lead to Guitar Supporrt Acquisition Syndrome GSAS....A disease related to GAS
I did try the Troster out again today.. I'm 6ft 2in tall, and with my guitar on the Troster, if i bend my neck down, my chin hits the upper bout. It only works good for me when I feel like playing with perfect posture, sitting straight up, with the headstock at eye level. But I like to slouch over a little bit to see my left hand on the fingerboard..
However, when all is said and done, I like the Murata the best.
