THIS STAND FITS MY ODD-SHAPED RC RICH MOCKINGBIRD PERFECTLY THANKS TO IT'S TOTAL ADJUSTABILITY - -I BOUGHT THREE OF THEM
You don't have to have an odd shaped axe to want this one. It's so easy to use, sturdy, and well padded that it's ideal for an everyday stand for any electric.
Tip: If you don't need the side support, it can be used to hold your rolled up patch cable.
Half a point subtracted because it's not cheap.
Adjustable supports and grip of the pad on the neck rest, combined with the backward tilt make for a very stable guitar stand. Requires about 6" of clearance from a wall. For a Jazzmaster, supports have to be in lowest position on stand for arm at side to extend out far enough. That arm functions as a guide; bringing the guitar to rest against it before lowering helps for correct positioning. If preferred, it can be folded up and retracted out of the way.
Well made stand that will be perfect solution for some. Buyers should know that the small upper support on the left side is fixed in place, and cannot be moved to the right side- significantly limiting flexibility. Main lower supports can move up and down, but cannot rotate on axis.
I purchased this stand because I own a Jazz bass and as we all know Jazz basses will not set flat in a support stand. So I adjusted it to fit the offset and put my bass in it. I then adjusted the support arm for the curve/waistline. It just does not work well on the jazz bass. The bass had a tendency to want to slip past the arm, was difficult to get in and out of the stand without my strap getting hooked somewhere on it, and for live reasons one doesn't want to have to wrestle with the stand on stage.
The construction is solid however the support arm is difficult to get tight enough to stay in plaice with weight on it, the tiny rubber feet that are very necessary for no slippage can get caught or grip carpet too much and come out of the holes and get lost. It's a great concept but has too many issues for me to be able to use it live.
I normally don't write reviews, but thought I should let people know. I purchased this stand for my Flying V because of the adjustability. If it had worked like I had hoped, I would have bought one for my Explorer and Firebird too since these guitars are all difficult to find stands for. The angle of the stand is too severe and the guitar felt like it would fall over if placed into the stand too quickly or bumped while in the stand.
