Love this stand! Have five of them now. Highly recommend.

The heavy body weight of a bluegrass banjo low centre of gravity makes most 3 legged guitar stands too tippy and may also have to be used banjo "face-in" on the stand. The length and positioning of the legs on the On Stage guitar stand holds your banjo steady against the A frame. Very satisfied,
i love this little stand - it's really sturdy, foldable, compact, works with any of my guitars (acoustic or electric), and all at a TERRIFIC PRICE ... u can't beat it for the money ... in addition, i use one as a tilt-back amp stand for my lightweight FENDER RUMBLE 40 amp when i'm playing bass (cheaper than an amp stand and works just as well) ...
After losing another of the 'u' shaped cradles out of a cheap guitar stand on my way out of a gig, I decided to try this A-frame one. Wow! This holds my Gibson LP Traditional very securely. There are no parts to lose and it folds up to a decently packable size. It seems like a heavy duty, gig worthy item. I like the stability the most. I was always worried about a band mate or some drunk knocking my guitar over into the drum kit or something, but this stand seems much more stable. I think this is going to be part of my essential gear from now on.
In my opinion, this is a terrific stand for electric guitars. The stand is very stable, and protects the guitar well. For acoustic guitars, I prefer a stand with a support for the neck of the guitar, but for electric guitars, this stand is perfect.
This is the best guitar stand I've ever used! On-stage makes some dynamite stuff (I have a keyboard gig-rig and their double stand is a beast).
The stand is sturdy and built to fit any guitar body, displays guitars for max visibility and accessability, and folds nicely for travel.
It is way better than the 3-piece stands I was using. I'm not sure how I retained my sanity without this stand.
I even just ordered more to replace my other stands.
I just ordered my fourth one of these, and plan on getting more. This is by far the best low profile guitar stand on the market, especially at this price. I've had similar stands from other, more expensive brands and they don't seem as nice. Build quality and stability is A+
This is a great stand, both compact and light, but very sturdy, holds my new SG perfectly, and puts no stress on the neck, Great price too !
An excellent lightweight functional guitar stand, great for the hobbyist or working musician...A good value for the price.
I ordered one of these stands and was so impressed with it I turned around and ordered this second one. I put in the order on April 15th and it was delivered at noon today on April 18th. Free shipping, fast delivery, great product, fantastic customer service, and the best prices around today. Sweetwater I'm in your corner from now on.
I ordered one of these stands on April 8th, free shipping, it arrived 4 days later. What a beefy beauty this stand is. Does a fantastic job of holding my guitars. I am so impressed with this stand I just ordered another one today, April 15. My personal feelings are that Sweetwater has excellent products at fair prices plus the best customer service I've found lately.
This is a great buy.
I really don't know what more you could expect from this stand. It is sturdy, compact, well-made and supports my new SE Angelus A10E beautifully, not to mention my other acoustic, a Tacoma D9. It folds up nicely and unobtrusively, making it easy to take wherever I need to go. Definitely recommend it as a great buy.
I have a couple of these stands. They are nice solid stands. I like that they are compact and easily portable. I was a little concerned in the beginning that they did not have a top piece to support the neck of a guitar. I've had one stand for a couple of years and just bought a second stand. I've never had any problem with the stands not securing my instruments and I have young grand kids running around the house on occasion. The way the arms are made, they incorporate a multitude of instrument bodies and you can have them sit more upright or lean back depending on where you set the body of the instrument on the stand. These stands are a good deal and as I said, I've bought more of them after using the first one for awhile. Currently I'm using them on 3 bass guitars, both short and long scale.
I have two of these stands. I use them to hold my small (Roland KC-60) keyboard amplifiers. This stand is rock solid and stable. The stand gets the amp off the floor and pointed up which greatly improves the sound I'm hearing from the amp. I use them all the time.
I play regularly in orchestras for several musical theatre companies. The orchestra pit area is often small and crowded. This stand is ideal because it fits under my amp(s) without increasing the amp footprint.
Every time I put my guitar in it I think what a nice stand. I'm buying 2 more. Can't beat the price.
I use this stand for all my guitars when out of the cases. Excellent padding and folds into a small unit. Easy to take on the go. On-Stage products are a great value. Thank you Sweetwater for your outstanding customer service.
I bought this stand hoping it would protect my guitar from falling over, and so far it has worked great even with our pets and our young grandchildren running around
i just got mine can't wait till friday nite to use it on stage it's a great bye
These things hold any guitar, take up very little room. I have 5 of them!
The stand has a very small footprint and holds almost every guitar. Very well made and sturdy.
I got this to get some nice pictures of my guitar collection. All my different guitars fit on it fine, and it does not block the instrument in the photo. From a Guild 12 string to Strats & LP's and beyond every one sat stable and smiled when I said "Cheese"
Best guitar stand ever. Despite its compact size, it is sturdier than regular stands with neck yokes. Holds my acoustics in place; virtually impossible to knock guitar out of stand, or to tip stand over due the low center of gravity. Super easy to pack for gig, no parts to lose.
I am ordering another to go with my new electric guitar that I am getting from SW. Buy one and you'll never use those old fashioned stands again.
It's great, I love how it's acoustic and electric. I have a few around the house, and can always rely on them to hold any guitar (Except offset-waist guitars, of course) without risk of slip.
I got this stand to use with an electric guitar that has a Fender Strat like body (actually a Line 6 Variax) which is not evenly round at the bottom. The two pegs that hold the guitar are bendable but really the left side needs to have two positions to compensate for these type of bodies. A second position would be higher on the left side. As it is, with no adjustment, the guitar neck will not sit straight on the upper pad.
I solved it in two ways. First, I bent the left side peg up and inward about an inch or two (the right side might need a minor adjustment). Second I added a foam pad around the area where the guitar sits on the left peg. This foam tube is really water pipe insulation. It's about the same color and has adhesive and is already split to go over existing pipes. You only need a small piece, 2" long.
The best thing about this stand is that it mostly disappears when the guitar is on it. Great for showing off your guitar.
Not to appear snarky, but I would've spent my money elsewhere if these didn't deliver. Selling points for me were it's low profile, light weight, portability, and is collapsible. One of the three I have has a slight wobble (hence, half off one star), but in no way is unstable.
Nice solid stand. All around very sturdy. I have both an acoustic and electric guitar and both set well on the stand.
This is a very sturdy well built stand, way better than the cheap tubular ones that have the neck yoke, which I bought first and it broke ( I didn't buy it from SW ). My dreadnaught acoustic guitar is very secure in it and would really take quite a hit to knock it over. I took away a half star because it really does lean back quite a ways. I may add something to the top piece so the guitar isn't leaning back so far, but for 23 dollars it's a great deal. Kudo's to Sweetwater for their super fast delivery time.
Just received this yesterday. I love it! Easy to transport and it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Very stable.
Sweetwater customer service is Top notched!
I would chose this guitar if I only had acoustic or electric. It is strong, balanced, forgiving and protects the guitar. It is ergonomically perfect for either acoustic or electric and built to last.
I bought this stand along with my Yamaha APX500III. Solid construction, feels sturdy. Guitar sits nice and stable on in it. Does not slide at all on my Terrazzo floor.
This holds my Epiphone SG quite well. It's perfect for guitars with symmetrical bodies. My son had to get a taller stand for his white blond Fender Bass (Mark Hoppus). I love its simple design and how solidly it supports the SG.
After many years of resting my Ibanez acoustic dreadnought against chairs, walls, etc., I now have a rugged padded stand to safely hold it at the ready. This stand is nicely padded and stable, even on thick carpet. Super item.
We love these sturdy little stands. We have 5 of them on stage with us and their always ready to work!
I own several different types of stands and thought I could live without my A-frame. Gave it to my daughter but regretted it. But, she wouldn't give it back! Had to purchase another. I like the ease of folding it up, it doesn't take a lot of space and is stable when the guitar is on it. Versatile in that it can also hold an amp., although the fit isn't ideal.
It's hard to get too excited about a guitar stand, but as far as guitar stands go, this is my favorite. I own four of them (plus the double-guitar A-Frame).
They are sturdy, and most importantly, they hold the guitar without messing with the neck. I would not even consider a stand that places weight against the top of the neck. Either hang it, or rest it by its body.
Works better than all other stands. And as always Sweetwater got it here in record time.
Very well made and sturdy. Protects your guitar well.
It works as expected. I like the versatility in that it can be used for acoustic or electric guitars. However, it angles back too far for my liking. The angle effectively increases the footprint. Other stands i have hold the guitar more vertically which allows me to use it close to a wall or next to other stands. I will look for another stand next time.
This stand is great if your instrument has a consistently symmetrical curve or flat base. However, if there is any sort of angle that is not symmetrical it has a high probability of falling over.
The two cradle brackets at the bottom of the units are riveted in. A rivet just recently and with not a lot of pressure broke off. If it was a screw or bolt it could be repaired. Unfortunately this makes the unit worthless. I see from other reviews that I'm not the only one with this problem. Will try another manufacturer.
I received this stand and before even opening the package, I noticed that it had a California Prop 65 warning. This means that this product contains possibly dangerous chemicals. No reason to bring that into my house when I don't have to! I'm sending it back and ordering one of the Gator Frameworks stands for the same price. I called Gator Frameworks and they verified that their stands do not carry the Prop 65 warning.
Also, as another reviewer mentioned, this stand has a pretty good tilt to it so it wouldn't work against a wall. The Gator Frameworks stand looks (from the pictures) to be more straight up-and-down.
The cradle yokes are touch-welded rather than screwed on and are subject to breaking off with slightest side pressure applied when closing the stand. Mine broke that way...
I bought this for my new Taylor 514CE. They both arrived three days ago. The stand was in my music bag for playing at church tonight. When I got home, I took it out and set it up. Luckily, I noticed just before I was going to put my new guitar in it, that the protective foam pad was missing. It came off in my bag. I came within in instant of scratching the back of a new, $2800 guitar because the pad was not attached securely. Definately not a reliable piece of gear.
Securely holds many guitars: an Ibanez solidbody, a large acoustic, my ES-335, and even a P bass. Indestructable. Folds flat, though not quite small enough to fit in a gig bag pocket. Highly recommended.
