    The major difference in Ron's cradle is that you can spin the rest over and it has a flat padded side so you can place the guitar down face for any work on the electronics and such.

    This is a production copy of a tool that he made for himself and used in his shop for years.

    Thanks for the plug Leon. They should be hitting the stores real soon. I had a couple hick-ups with the patent and the licensing, but it's all squared away and full steam ahead now.

    Hopefully this isn't too spamarific, but, it's a great gizmo that works in any application - installing inlays, dressing frets, installing tuners, working on the electronics on the back of the guitar, adjusting trem claw screws, even simply changing strings.

    You know, that looks like it would beat the heck out of a ream of paper and an old towel.
