Guitar Stand???

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, the wife bought me a guitar for christmas, so now I got another hobby to learn! Anyway, the key thing here, just like forging is practicing. It's a bit of a pain to get it in and out of the case etc. every time. I'm thinking if I had a nice guitar stand I could just leave it set up, plugged into the amp right next to my chair and whenever I got 3 minutes I could pick it up and at least run through a couple of scales. I'm in the research and design phase. Not really sure what's important for a guitar stand other than it be stable and hold the guitar securely. It would of course be desireable to have them look nice to boot. Any design ideas or input or pictures etc. would be muchly appreciated.

You can make them fold up at the neck and legs. By using rivets to give it a old time look. I've made a bunch of the wall mounted ones. Just upset the end of the rod that goes Thru the wall plate. And they hold the guitar off the floor and still in sight when you wanna pick some.
Plus it want get knocked over either. I'll try to post pictures.

I based mine on the $20 one from Guitar Center. It does not fold up but turned out nice. My next one will be a double sided one.
