More about project :
 You can move your guitar up, and also to the left or to the right, and it will remain there, without further efforts. Performaxe lets you choose how you want your guitar to rest on your legs. Performaxe reduces fatigue when you practice sitting down, it lets you stop hunching over, bearing straps or footstools, or tensing your legs and feet for hours on end. It is built with comfort in mind so it firmly clamps to your guitar and you won’t feel like you’re “playing with something attached”, but it will be as if your guitar changed its shape into a more comfortable one.Improve your posture and the playability of the instrument with Performaxe, and focus for longer on your music.

PERFORMAXE IS LOVED BY PROFESSIONALSPerformaxe has been praised for its effectiveness by guitarist of all skill levels, from bedroom players to international guitar heroes. DESIGNED LIKE A WORK OF ART The patent design of Performaxe has been perfected in over one year of prototyping and beta testing, it is effective and extremely easy to use, and it’s a valuable practice companion worth being seen on the most beautiful guitars.
