Hi

You know exactly the name of the guitar support that Marcin Dylla uses in this photo?

It seems to me a support type "gitano" but much longer than usual.

But the name of the seller ... ???

It looks like a neck-up (if you google search you can find pictures on it). You can see the strap that goes all the way down to the bottom of the instrument.

I saw him perform at Carnegie Hall last April. The support he uses when he lifts his guitar collapses flat against the guitar. presumably so he can pack it away like that and doesn't have to pull off the suction cups each time he packs up. It doesn't stay rigid but folds flat against the guitar. Not sure if that helps narrow it down. There was no strap.

What you are describing is the Neck Up.

I have one and, incidentally, use it on the same guitar as Dylla's - a Phillip Woodfield GCIII.

I think it's great - compact, easy to use, very adjustable and - as others have said - it can remain on the guitar when in it's case (although I always remove mine).

However, I did have one issue: The large sucker tends not to move but the small one (ie the one that attaches near the endblock) did move when I used it on a CG. It was fine on my steel strings, I suspect because the finish on those is smooth/glass-like. My CG is french polished and this sinks into the wood a little so its slightly more difficult to achieve a completely airtight seal with the sucker.

The solution was simple - the strap has holes in it, just like a regular acoustic guitar strap, into which the sucker locates. I got Phillip to put a small endpin on my guitar and use this on the strap rather than the sucker; the whole deal is now rock-solid.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi!

I saw Marcin last April in Montreal and I can confirm that he uses the neckup, I asked him after the concert.

nice!

I tried several types, decided on the NeckUp, and have been extremely pleased with it. In addition to CGs and steel strings, it also works well on solid-body electrics as long as their shape isn't too weird.

I have and use a ‘NeckUp’ support when I play outside my house. In my home music room I use a Flanger cushion.
I’ve never had an issue with the suction cups on the NeckUp coming loose. However, I only play 3-4 pieces at my Rotary Club meeting. I like the NeckUp because it’s so discreet. If you’re in the audience you have to look carefully to even notice it.
