Handrest

Are these still able to found? How much do they go for? Is there anything I can make or buy anywhere that will do the same thing? When I palm mute the high string and when I alternate pick chordal stuff, a hand rest would make all the difference.

Re: Handrest

It would be easier to learn how not to rest your hand on the bridge while playing and when doing palm mutes learn to rest it lightly.

Re: Handrest

Well another good thing about handrests is you dont rust out your saddles.

Re: Handrest

Ibanez is still making them but not for the common folk. Rob Balducci has it installed on some of his guitars.

Re: Handrest

Ibanez isn't making them. Some guy is reproducing them. I can't remember his name and contact though, but if you search hard enough there's a thread here of course.

Sounds to me like you should be stocking them Rich. I'm sure someone would pay extra to have their new axe outfitted with the palm rest.

Re: Handrest

I think the studs still have to be drilled and tapped.

Re: Handrest

Yup - I'm 'some guy,' and Rob Balducci is using two of them I made for him, a 7-string one on his BAL-7, and a 6-string one on his green custom RG.

Devon8822 has made contact with me now, too.

Re: Handrest

Steve, do you have the threaded studs also?

Re: Handrest

I 'add' the threading to existing studs, as required.
It 'eats' the plug taps, and it's a bit of a b!tch, but I get 'em in there.

Occasionally we run into some luck, when someone happens to have older spec studs, which are threaded to the top of the Stud Lock hole.
