Rasgueo-Rest ahh this is what i’ve needed

Well the “The Rasgueo-Rest” has put my arm and hands in the right position so that my wrist is at the right angle to act as a pendulum and oh does if feel good and the tone that is now coming from my hand, fingers, nails is so much softer and really nice.  I think I am going to try to buy some more of these.    This is a real keeper.  The pics are of the Rasgueo Rest on the DeVoe.

Mukava is a Armrest for Acoustic Guitars

Mukava is a armrest for acoustic guitars. Get a better sound and feel more comfortable and relax while playing your guitar.


Was able to find one on the other side of the pond, in Europe so I ordered one of these as well today. Will post more after I have tired it out.

Update looks very nice, very easy to install, comfortable as well.

The “Rasgueo-Rest”

Rasgueo RestJust ordered one of the last The “Rasgueo-Rest” that are available.  I am very glad that I was able to find one.  After my lesson with Titio Rubio today it was apparent that due to my long arms I would need either a larger guitar or some device that would put my arm back a few inches so I would be able to play with my finger tips striking the string near the rosette.   This looks like it will fit the DeVoe and may be the answer.  Will post more when I receive it and get to try it out

The “Rasgueo-Rest” (patent-pending), is an ergonomically designed, adjustable guitar arm rest that will help you to get the most out of your practice and performance time.

The clean lines and transparent design of this arm rest will not compete with, or detract from the beauty of your Guitar’s fine wood. The light-weight construction material is visually non-obtrusive and durable.

Extended Guitar playing hours can become uncomfortable, and cause possible physical damage to the players arm and posture. Your playing time will be more enjoyable, and can be extended using the comfortable support and rounded contour of the Rasgueo-Rest.

This presents an elegant solution to the discomfort that Guitar players often experience from resting their arm on the sharp top edge of the Acoustic Guitar.

The Rasgueo-Rest is light-weight, and will not make your Guitar top-heavy, or change the balance of the instrument. Total weight is only approximately 10 oz. . . If you keep your instrument on a stand, you can leave the support on indefinitely, with no damage to the wood finish. It is easy to remove.

The Rasgueo-Rest RV-9 protects the Guitar’s finish from wear and perspiration damage, besides saving you wear & tear on your arm!It does not touch any area of the sound board, and so your guitar tone is not effected. You may actually discover that the Guitar tone is clarified, because the sound board is no longer dampened with your arm. Your arm and clothing are kept away from the soundboard, promoting full sonic resonance and projection of sound.

For large and tall players, the Rasgueo-Rest provides the additional height-support needed to play in a comfortable posture.The total surface-support area of the guitar is in effect, expanded, so that you do not need to hunch over to find the right playing position. When you get comfortable, playing is just more productive and fun.Model RV-9: $75.00. This fixed height design gives you an arm rest with slight flex, approx 3 inches above your guitar’s top edge. Size: approximately 7″ x 4″ x 2.5 “. It is designed with a smooth ergonomic curve to cushion and support your fore-arm or upper arm, depending on your playing position and size
