v2.1 adds a sculpted, carbon-fiber reinforced arm that moves the center
of gravity of the instrument so that it balances more like a normal
guitar without adding to its length or thickness.
The arm is filled
with biaxial woven carbon fiber fabric and pressure cast molded with
graphite filled epoxy to form an extremely lightweight structure that is
stronger than steel. The arm is mounted into a pocket that is routed
into the rear body of the instrument so that the overall thickness is
We designed the arm
to follow the exact contour of the instrument so that excellent balance
is achieved without disturbing the smooth contours of the body.
With its own strap
lock button molded in, you’re free to use virtually any strap you’d like

So if you’re one of
those folks who just can’t adapt to the balance characteristics of the
PalmGuitar® 2.0, the v2.1 may be for you. If you’re not
sure, don’t worry … any of the v2 series options can be installed
on any v2 at any time. Modifying an existing instrument will take a
minimum of 48 hours turnaround time. If you’d prefer instead to order
your v2.1 from the start, if we don’t have finished v2.1’s in stock, the
wait shouldn’t be more than a couple of days.
