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.

Dead blow neck rest

By

Verified Buyer


Great item to stabilize the neck. Also, here is a tip, get some bench cookies to put under the rear of the guitar and this stabilizes the even more preventing the rear of the guitar from rocking.

Very good neck rest.

By

Verified Buyer


Bags may be a little over filled but some like that. They work very well and don't move around as much as hard neck rests.

Adjustable and quality support. Great tool for changing your strings.

Okay for fretwork

By

Verified Buyer


This neck rest is okay for fretwork, but because it is so thick you have to put something under the body of the guitar/bass to keep everything level and to prevent the body from "flipping up" as you are working on the frets.

The dead blow neck rest is perfect for quick work and repair even just restringing

Easy to use keeps the guitar safe and steady as long as long as you use a towel to protect the belly

Right now I have an old violin resting comfortably. I like the versatility of angles that are possible. Worth every dime.

Miss my old shot bag but...

By

Verified Buyer


This is a great replacement. Nothing beats the old 20lb bag of lead shot. But the weight on this one is much more managable. Also like the folding feature for certain jobs

Great.

Dont listen to that first guy who says"Its a little lite for fretting" Dude must be installing frets with a jack hammer.The rest is perfect for fret work,changing strings or for whatever reason you lay down a guitar needing neck support.

A little light for fretting

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this item for fretting and other work requiring support for the neck. I find it a little light to absorb the percussion of the fretting hammer. The neck does not nestle into the neck rest like for example it does in a bag of bird shot. It is better than a cork-lined neck rest.
