    With how many of my friends are actively using this holding fixture, I’m surprised not to see all their names in the review area (yep, that’s a nudge to you guys).
    I’ve been using this in conjunction with the mini crossover for a few months now, and I can safely say it’s changed the way I work. The most welcome change to my workflow has been the ability to work on complicated structural issues without twisting my body around.
    Have you ever done a bridge reglue directly in front of your face while standing? How bout a brace repair? How about with complete confidence the guitar will stay there during the process?
    Buy it. Make some money with it. You’ll be happy you did.

    I have been doing guitar repair and restoration for over 25 years and I have seen lots of repair gadgets come and go. I can honestly say I have never had a tool change the entire way I look at repairs. I use the workstation every single day. If you are like me and you like to customize everything this workstation makes it so easy to do so. I have put a 3/4 size upright bass in it as well as a soprano uke. The only change I would make is that it was avail 25 years ago! Great Job! I love my Proper’s Guitar Workstation and cannot imagine doing repairs without it!
