Frequently Asked Questions
1. The role of Knee Plate Screw?
It is a screw that maximizes stability by finely tuning and fixing the angle as desired by the user when the knee plate rotate left and right.
By turning the screw clockwise to tighten the screw, the angle between knee plate and support plate becomes wider and by turning it unclockwise it becomes narrowed.
2. Do I need to purchase components separately?
Z-Skinny comes with everything for installation on one guitar including a double-sided tape on.
Additional sets of the double-sided tape and other components such as separation tool and marking post-it are available in case of rare detachment or for transferring the support to another guitar.
Of course you can buy extra tool kit on our website.
3. Will the Z-Skinny affect the guitar’s sound?
Whether it's the player's knee or the attachment of the guitar support against the guitar body, the area on the side of the guitar is attenuated. It can be said that the Z-Skinny has no greater attenuation than any other guitar support on the market. The stickers and pads used on the Z-Skinny supports do not reduce or alter the movement of the guitar strings.
Rather, according to one of research on Z-Skinny, the vibration damping can be reduced because the area in contact with the body of the guitar side plate is reduced.
This is believed to be similar to the effect of arm rest reducing vibration damping. In conclusion, the acoustic fluctuations resulting from the use of the Z-Skinny guitar pedestal were evaluated to have a slight improvement effect.
4. What is the difference between the Basic and Swivel model?
Z-Skinny BASIC is a fixed-type knee support suitable for general users who enjoy classical guitar as a hobby or for beginners.

You can select and buy it according to your level of proficiency in playing the guitar, but you can choose it according to your needs.
