When you are looking for a guitar rest for a classical guitar you have choice between ErgoPlay and Gitano. (Yes, there are others but these are the two that most often duke-it-out on forums) Both are excellent rests, but choosing one over the other is a matter of how you play. Consider the following variables:

Do I play with the guitar positioned almost flat or fairly upright?
Do I want to play with or without a footstool?

The Ergo rest expects you to play with the guitar in a fairly to almost fully upright position without a footstool. The Gitano requires the use of a footstool for a comfortable upright position and no footstool when the guitar is fairly flat.
Of the two, I prefer the Ergo as it allows me to keep both feet flat on the floor. Last year I had major spinal surgery; not having to tilt my hips when playing (as I would with a footstool) is quite important.
When purchasing the Ergo Tappert, I also purchased the children's model for my five year old son. The transformation in his playing was marked. He finds both left and right hand fingering easier using the rest rather than a footstool. Further, the guitar no longer slips off his knee as it was once prone to do even when using a 'sticky' securing cloth.

Overall, the Ergo rest seems quite expensive at first, but for me has been money well spent.

Rather expensive but well worth the money. It greatly improves posture and control of the guitar and reduces slippage from the knee. It has plenty of scope for adjustment in order to achieve the preferred playing height. The only negative point may be that the suction cups do not always hold too well on highly glossed finishes and have a tendancy to lift after a while. However it is thoroughly recommended for those who are serious about classical guitar playing.

I have been playing classical guitar for many years, using a footstool to raise my left leg to support the guitar. It is always a nuisance to have to carry a footstool around with me and recently I have noticed on YouTube, that many German guitarists use a guitar rest instead of a footstool. I began to investigate and soon found the Ergoplay guitar rest on Amazon and sent off for one. It took a week or two to arrive (it was despatched from Germany), but this didn't matter to me as I knew that the company was reliable and it would get to me eventually.

I have now been using the guitar rest for a couple of weeks and I have to say, it has transformed my playing. I love not having to use a foot rest. I can now sit in any chair and play the guitar just where I am, without having to hunt for the foot-rest and set it to the appropriate height. The position of the guitar seems to be just the same as when I use a foot-rest, but both my feet are planted firmly on the ground.

My guitar is finished with nitrocellulose lacquer and so far I can detect no marking from the suction pads which secure the rest to the body. I doubt that marking will occur but to be honest, I would be prepared to tolerate some slight marking because the rest is so convenient to use and I don't think I will ever go back to a foot-stool.

The simple thumbscrew on the guitar rest makes it very easy to adjust. I usually play on a dining chair but if I want to play on a sofa or casual chair, I just lower the rest a little using the thumbscrew.

Although this rest is not cheap, it does seem to be made of very high quality materials. I anticipate that I will never have to buy another one as this one should last many years.

This rest has transformed the way I play guitar and I only wish I had found it years ago.

The rest was very good positionally and solved my back and wrist problems . I was watching closely to see if the suction pads left marks as I have seen on the internet this is possible . I kept the rest in place for brief periods of half an hour or so to reduce the chance of this, but unfortunately after a few weeks the pads left tide marks on the finish that I found ugly and unsightly . I could not remove them at first but eventually obtained a specialist product that did the job . My instrument is finished with nitrocellulose lacquer which is notoriously vulnerable, but I like it to look good as well as play well, so the cloudiness under the suctions pads did bother me.

I wish I could think of another way to attach this rest, because positionally it is excellent, and having tried other solutions such as straps and foot stools it is definitely the best from that point of view.

Although initially I thought the price was a bit steep after using the stand for the past few performances I have to say it is well worth the cost. This is a sturdy little piece of kit for anyone who wants to support the posture they cannot get without a stand. I would recommend this to anyone over all other guitar supports. I can see this lasting the rest of my life as a musician.

Such a good idea, well implemented. If you sit to play an acoustic guitar often, do your back a favour and use this guitar rest.

Good quality product, but by its nature, will work best with gloss finish guitar side.
