Excellent guitar stands and they fold flat for transportation
I like displaying all my guitars. Like the easy access.
I bought all the ones I could find when my local now-defunct music superstore with a planetary name closed; they used them for in-store display. These are the only stands I've had in the several years since. As a matter of fact, I'm at this web site today to order some more. They fit all my instruments from small ukes to full-scale bass guitars. I've had two die recently because of other people trying to help me pack. The stand has a red lever and a red knob that lock everything in place. One helper forced the sliding neck in without flipping the red lever and damaged the mechanism. I still use the stand at home with my shorter scale instruments. Another helper tried to fold the legs in on another stand without turning the red knob. He forcefully folded two legs in this manner before realizing there was more to it. The others are still holding and look like new. Not bad for gear that was bought used several years ago. Another reviewer mentioned the plastic parts, so my $0.02 on that: They are actually the better grade of fiber reiforced plastic, not cheap PVC. Yes, the stand would be indestructible if it were all metal, but I haven't seen things build that way since the 70s. Bottom line: these are a great buy.
The base of the tripod, where the three arms join, is made of plastic. IT BREAKS. The stand looks awesome and if this part was made of metal it would be perfect. I'll take it to Sam Ash next week to see what they say about it, hopefully I can find something that looks as great as this one but in a better quality.
This is the pinnacle of guitar stands. This is the one stand I have found that will not drop or scratch the instrument, and yet there is no fiddling required to hang the instrument up or take it down. This is the one you want.[...]
Vortigern of Cursed Be
"God knows I take good care of my equipment. So why is it than that I have a guitar stand that looks brand new bust is worthless? I've had the Genesis 100 for MAYBE a year and a half, and the other day, as I peacefully rest my guitar on it, something internally snapped causing the whole thing to almost come crashing down. I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it was within the stand that broke, but it was something that had to do with preventing the more slender part of the neck from slipping out. If my guitar had been resting on the thing for the entire duration of the year and a half, I might be able to understand why a small internal part would just finally gave way like that. I'm very disapointed with what WAS a very good stand."
