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!
