Adjustable Right Hand Thumb Rest

Vintage instruments with one-piece soldered-on thumb rests often cause discomfort in the thumb and wrist. Modern style thumb rests can be added to any vintage instrument for comfort and adjustability. In some cases, the soldered-on thumb rest need only be moved to a new angle or location to improve comfort and ease tension.
