Handrest for a UV?

Ok , i know someone here knows this.I really want to get a handrest for my UV (i know they dont make them anymore ,and that they weren't made for UV's)but i want one.So can someone here that has one tell me the measurements , then i can make adustments so it will fit and i can have it made.For some reason i think that Littlegreenman or Rich might be the ones to answer this one.

I have neither the mechanical ability to try and make one nor do I have the facilities to try and manufacture one.

I...however....would consider paying generously for a pair of them for my UV777BK and RG7620 if someone finds they've got a knack for it.

Please....before I have to drill out a body for a Trem-Setter.

Perhaps it won't be a surprise to find out that I'm about half way through making a 7-string sized one...
I was saving it as a 'surprise' to post it, but here the topic finally came up...

Well, after having taken a break over the holidays, my RG7-620GN now has my first 7-string handrest on it, as of earlier this evening. It's my test one.
I'm going to get a couple of shots of it as soon as I can.

It's very interesting.

I'll also mention in that other thread...

Okay:
7-string handrest on my RG7-620GN

There's the pics as promised; click on the pics on the left to make'em big.

Working great, comfy on the hand - slightly different construction from my original 6-string one(s) made for my LNG.

This could turn into a very lucrative business for you (especially here on jemsite). Keep up the good work man!

Those are cool and all, but at this point in my guitar playing career im trying to develope my pick hand so i can play really accurate and quick. I feel like a hand rest would force me to change my picking style and just plain get in the way. Plus, i dont really see the point of having em. Looks cool though/

Dead Roman,
Your points are probably representative of the majority of people - like me, not having access to the handrests when I /really/ could have used them forced me to adjust how I worked my picking hand to keep from pushing the trem about.
But there are some who would still like the option of having an anchor point where they can brace their hand and not worry about warbling things, without affecting how the trem itself works.
Enter the handrest - stands over the trem (btw; it's adjustable, and made to be kept VERY low, so that you can rest your hand, yet still palm-mute without feeling like a foreign object is there), pull up unchanged (rest just sits there in 'neutral' position - but when it's time to dump the bar, the trem 'picks up' the handrest, and takes it along for the ride.

Look closely at the pics - it sits /just/ over the saddles. My good but somewhat skeptical friend's first test-play of my RG7 (he has two of them as well) had him literally saying that he tried to notice it, but simply couldn't. Apparently it was quite seamless in feel to him.
End result; he wants me to make two of them for him.

Anyway, you're right; it's not for everyone.
I'm just a) satisfying a 15 year old desire for this hardware by making it myself, and b) extending the idea to include our beloved 7-strings.

I wonder if Skarekrough is still hunting for this option?

that armrest looks pretty cool, i however don't have a need for one, but it does look cool, maybe with something written or drawn on it, it would look better
