Overview

Gives your arm a more comfortable contour and also helps to protect the top of the guitar from perspiration. Most importantly, it allows you to play normally while it lifts your arm clear off the top of the guitar, giving you all the sound your guitar has to give.

The outer edge of the John Pearse Armrest is a compound curve so that it can conform to a wide variety of body shapes. It is attached to the surface by means of a double-sided adhesive strip, developed to hold it securely without harming the delicate lacquer of the soundboard. If you have a guitar that has a high value as a "collectable", you may want to reflect on the addition of an Armrest because it is not considered "Original Equipment."

The John Pearse Armrest is designed as a permanent addition to the guitar - as is a pick guard or a bridge.

Comments about John Pearse Acoustic Armrest:

This is a way to customize your guitar both in functionality and appearance. It is permenantly attached though so if you plan to sell your guitar it stays with the guitar. I plan to keep mine so I attached it. It is very simple and quick to attach. Improvements in sound is subjective to each ear but I like it, bottom line.

    John Pearse Acoustic Armrest

    By Dennis Wilson

    from Indianapolis, In

    Comments about John Pearse Acoustic Armrest:

    Never thought this product could make a difference, but after I installed the armrest, immediately I noticed the difference. Several hand-made guitars have these armrest built in and for a good reason; they work! I recommend this product for anyone wanting a fuller sound from their instrument.

    john pearse armrest review

    By johnny johnson

    from fairfield, pa

    Comments about John Pearse Acoustic Armrest:

    I orginally ordered the john pearse armrest to cover a small ding on a 1982 model 1139 Ovation acoustic. I never noticed how your arm rests on the guitar taking away from the sound. This armrest is fantastic, looks great (also covers the ding), mounts easily and stays in place and has added so much to the tone and volume. I will be ordering more to put on all of my acoustic guitars. Great quality and price, thanks again for having the best in all equipment and accessories. Johnny

    John Pearse ebony armrest

    By Al Smith

    from West End, N.C.

    Comments about John Pearse Acoustic Armrest:

    I installed an ebony armrest on my 1991 HD35 Martin shortly after the purchase. It increases the volume by 15-20 percent. Recently I installed 3 Pearse armrests' on fellow picker's Martins. All are pleasd with the increased volume. I would not be without an armrest...my old Martin cuts through 8 or 10 pickers in a jam and can be HEARD!! It makes sense that an arm resting on a soundboard is going to deaden the sound.I get frequent remarks about how loud and great my ol' Martin sounds...makes me feel goooood!!! I also use a hand-made armrest on my custom built C.E Ward mandolin...it's the best and loudest mandolin around this area. It kick's butt!!

    Great product

    By John McFadyen

    from Arizona

    Comments about John Pearse Acoustic Armrest:

    I had some misgivings about sticking one of these on my '67 D-18, but I was dead wrong. I only thought the old baby sounded good before. It really does exactly what is claimed. I now have one on both Martins and a Taylor, and the results were the same for each one, a more responsive better sounding instrument.
