StewMac Deadblow Neck Rest

About This Item

Shock-absorbing support
Like a sandbag, our Deadblow Neck Rest is dense but flexible. It conforms to fit any instrument on your bench, and solidly absorbs hammer blows during fretwork.

Everything from string changes to repairs
Fold it in half for large-body acoustics, and lay it flat to fit small instruments. Our thanks to guitar repairman Gene Imbody for this smart, versatile design.

"I've been using this design for a few years now. Its flexibility makes this my go-to rest."
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Size: 12" x 6" (305mm x 152mm)
Folds to 6" x 6" (152mm x 152mm)
Weight: 4 pounds (1.81kg)

Durable canvas filled with shock-absorbing pellets.



Deadblow Neck Rest is also available as a set with the StewMac Guitar Bench Pad: a soft, rugged mat for repairs and setup. Safe for instrument finishes.

Great but leaking!

By

Verified Buyer


The reviews convinced me to add this to my bench but the glue seals have opened and the sand is falling out onto the bench when in certain positions.

Response from StewMac


Oops! We apologize for that. We're shipping a replacement to you today. Thank you!

I love it. Many uses, works like the pictures show. I use the a-frame neck rest position the most.

Great for the shop!

I bought this because my old bag of lead shot was worn and it probably isn't the best idea to have laying around. This is a much better upgrade and is very affordable as well as functional.

Yet, another way to rest the neck

This thing is great. It holds both electric and acoustic. It won't mar the neck like wood. Martin has one, but I like this one better.

Love the neck rest!

Verified Buyer


This thing is so simple yet so useful.....I recently used it for my first banjo build and it was perfect for all sorts of operations throughout the project. This is not your grandma's bean bag. It has a lot of heft to it, the sections are stuffed full so they don't squish much under load, and it can be used in a variety of ways. Well worth the cost.

Yep, I'm loving this thing. The wife & I get along much better now that I'm not using her purse.
