How do you hold a guitar body to spray a finish? Hang it on a ceiling hook and weave around it while you trip over your spray hose? Fasten it to a stick and hold it up until your arm cramps? Prop it up and hope it doesn't fall over when you bump your worktable?

The unique Freehand Holder is our new solution. It's an easier way to hold a body or neck securely, for a more uniform finish.

Freehand Holder includes:
• Sturdy steel frame
• Rotating handwheel shaft
• One solidbody attachment
• One acoustic attachment

Clamp the sturdy steel frame into your vise and fasten the guitar body or neck to the rotating handwheel shaft. Attachments for solidbody and acoustic neck joints are included. Now simply turn the wheel as you spray. The body moves to you, not the other way around, for easy, uniform spray coverage. A smoother finish means you'll save time and effort at the sanding stage, too.

The wheel has Allen-adjustable resistance. To switch bodies quickly for production finishing, extra body attachments are available separately—you can spray one while another dries.

You'll probably discover other work-saving uses for the Freehand Holder, we'd love to hear about it!

A big help

I don't do much painting so its great as a standalone clamped into my Workmate. I used it with a piece of 1/2" EMT as an extention. The EMT is a bit snug so you have to sand it down a bit to make it fit into the Freehand attachment.

Estável e fácil de manusear.

É um ótimo suporte para se ter, evita as chamadas "gambiarras" e garante um trabalho mais profissional. O único problema é que as furações não bateu com a minha guitarra, neste caso tive que fazer um pequeno box de madeira para utilizar o suporte sem alterar a furação do instrumento e funcionou perfeitamente. Recomendo!

Exrta hand, Extra time

Use this for many spray jobs. It makes spraying quick and easy. Holds project in place while shooting paint or lacquer, and easy to turn while using the spray gun. No fumbling around!

A Great Idea

This tool will save you a lot of grief when spraying. I have it on a rotary stand, excellent for bursting bodies.

Great for Eliminating Runs

I was getting runs from the KTM-9 waterborne finish when I hung the body vertically. The Freehand Holder allows the top and back to remain horizontal. No more runs.
