StewMac Body Board

About This Item

Lifts the guitar up and away from benchtop clutter
Don't let a tool-filled bench scratch the instrument you're working on. Use the Body Board with our Guitar Repair Vise and double your workspace.

More room to work in a crowded shop
Lots of elbow room: with the guitar firmly supported, you can step around it to work on both front and back. Holds the guitar topside-up, sideways or upside-down—in all positions, the no-scratch padded riser supports the body.
Lots of tool room: with the guitar held this new way, your benchtop is always free for holding tools and parts.

The most compact workstation ever
Turn a tiny patch of floor space into the hub of your workshop: mount a Guitar Repair Vise on a ShopStand with a StewMac Body Board. You get a versatile, height adjustable workstation that rotates to any angle. The felt-padded riser moves horizontally and vertically to accommodate anything from a ukulele to a long-scale bass.

Reach all sides of the body better
"I'm able to reach all sides of the body better when it's on the board. For an awesome free standing rig, I add it to the ShopStand. That gives me 360-degrees of access to my work."
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

High quality plywood with durable hardware.

Dimensions: 30-3/4" x 6" x 1" (781mm x 152mm x 25mm)
Felt padded riser adjusts from 2-1/2" to 5-1/2" (63mm to 139mm)

#1843 Includes: Body Board, Guitar Repair Vise, ShopStand and adapter bolt to attach to the vise to the stand.

Great addition to StewMac's guitar vise

By

Verified Buyer


This body board frees up my workbench top while I'm working on a guitar or bass and tucks out of the way when I'm done. I'm very pleased with it.

I thought it would be handy,,,

I was right! I still haven't used it to it's full potential, but I'm getting there. I like being able to swing the work out of the way so you can work on the bench top. Like, the other day, I was fitting a new nut into a bass and had the bass in the vise, then swung it out of the way so I could do some nut shaping...

Simple Yet Affective

I admit be skeptical when I first saw this introduced as a new item. However, having a modest workspace and a recent fret dress on a Gibson Les Paul got me thinking about it again. I ordered it, mounted it to my bench and instantly appreciated being able to walk around a guitar I'm working on especially for doing fretwork.

Great Addition to the Guitar Repair Vice

By

Verified Buyer


Set this up with my vice on a floor stand, and now I NEVER have an instrument on the work bench any more. 360 access to the instrument in the middle of the floor is amazing, I don't have to keep moving the instrument, I just work around it. One small draw back, felt on the body support is less than ideal, as things can slide off quickly . I modified with some neoprene matting, which is more skid resistant. Maybe this is something that could be included as an accessory.

Body Board is great

This tool is very useful for detail work as it provides all around access. Just took a few minutes
To mount to my vice (which I have had by the way for around 12 years and couldnt work without it). I do plan to make another "support" to accomodate my guitars when I mount the headstock in my vice. The photo shows where the lower bout rests on the support. Making a support that is a few inches longer is a quick fix. Love the Body Board. Havent tried to surf with it yet. Ha!
