Benedetto Neck Rest

Designed by archtop artisan Bob Benedetto and made exclusively by StewMac, this elegant neck rest has a few hidden features to help you elevate your craft. From simple setups to tricky adjustments in the playing position, this beautiful helper instantly earns its spot on your bench.

A guitar neck rest is a must-have! Whether you're changing strings or changing tuners, you need to keep your guitar steady and secure. Benedetto applied his decades of guitar building and design to craft a neck rest that is not only functional and visually appealing—it's also built tough for a rugged life in your shop.

Two heights, endless uses
The upper neck cradle sets the Benedetto Neck Rest apart from the pack. The special shape perfectly holds the guitar on its side. Why? It's ideal for making adjustments in the playing position—no more awkward balancing act! It's quickly becoming one of our favorite setup tools. The extra height is also just right for working on large archtops and acoustic guitars.

The lower large neck cradle is wide and shallow, perfect for holding the guitar face up or face down. It's the right height for solidbody and semi-hollow electrics. Made from sturdy plywood lined with scratch-free and finish-safe felt padding.
