The John Pearse® Armrest gives your arm a more comfortable contour and also helps to protect the top of the guitar from perspiration. But, most importantly, it allows you to play normally while it lifts your arm clear of the top of the guitar, giving you all the sound your guitar has to give!
By placing your arm against the top of the guitar, you lose between 15% and 20% of the power and projection of the top of the guitar! And we really are talking as much about clarity and quality of sound as we are the volume! That wonderful sound when you strum the strings just before you close the case--that is the true sound of the "unimpeded top" of your guitar!
Standard size Rosewood or Ebony (right handed) ~ or ~ the slim line Ebony (right handed). The slimline is great for guitars with a more pronounced curvature of the lower bout. Also we have the Rosewood or Ebony Jr., just slightly smaller than the original. These are RIGHT-Handed, unless otherwise specified.
We accept Visa/Mastercard/American Express/Discover from USA residents and good ol' cash. Personal checks are accepted under the condition that shipment is delayed until the check clears the bank. TN residents add 9 1/4% sales tax.
We ship Fedex ground insured, unless otherwise specified by the buyer. On finer instruments, we insist on overnight shipment for safe handling. Buyer pays shipping unless otherwise agreed upon. International shipments are via FedEx.
Must have prior approval of return. Opened strings are not returnable. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your guitar, simply return it fully insured (with prior authorization) via shipping method we agree upon. When we receive the instrument in the same condition as when we shipped it, you will happily be issued a refund minus all shipping costs.
