Gitano Guitar Support Review


Click here to Purchase the Gitano Support

The Gitano Guitar Support is compact and portable, easily fitting in most case storage pockets. It’s likely the smallest support available at 5.5 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, and less than 1 inch thick. And it’s endorsed by Andrew York.

This support is versatile, working equally well for left- and right-handed guitarists and on both classical and acoustic guitars. It reduces stress on the lower back by helping to maintain a good playing position.

The support’s versatility extends to the guitar angles that it makes possible, from steep to almost parallel to the ground. Where you attach the two suction cups to the guitar determines the instrument’s angle.

At the common medium angle, the support provides a lift range of about 2.75 inches to 3.5 inches. Like your guitar nearly flat? The support offers a lift range of about 1 1/8 inches to 1 7/8 inches. Like your guitar steep? The amount of lift increases as the angle increases, reaching a maximum of about 7.25 inches.

The Gitano support is great for:

  • Comfort
  • Mobility
  • Keeping a great posture
  • relieving stress and pain from using a footstool

Some Drawbacks

  • Suction cups are not reliable
  • Not completely adjustable

Hi, I’m Allen Mathews. 


I started as a folk guitarist, then fell in love with classical guitar in my 20’s. Despite a lot of practice and schooling, I still couldn’t get my music to flow well. I struggled with excess tension. My music sounded forced. And my hands and body were often sore. I got frustrated, and couldn’t see the way forward. Then, over the next decade, I studied with two other stellar teachers – one focused on the technical movements, and one on the musical (he was a concert pianist). In time, I came to discover a new set of formulas and movements. These brought new life and vitality to my practice. Now I help guitarists find more comfort and flow in their music, so they play more beautifully.
