This little stand works as promised. It can be folded flat so it is fairly portable. It is made of plastic, but reasonably strong to withstand the weight of a guitar. If one uses it with care I even think longevity may not be an issue either. I must add at the end that I use this with classical guitars. If you are considering it for an electric guitar with no resonance chamber, your guitar may not sit flat on work surface as the stand lifts it up at the neck.

not impressed at all. little plastic thing that tips over at the slightest provocation. forwards, backwards and sideways it will tip when winding the strings. gotta work slow or there goes your guitar! i'ii use it but think I can make a better one from scrap wood and felt. Bass layers? Forget it. Not heavy enough. If it was a little wider at the base and a little taller it would be better. Compact tho. lol. Kinda yes and no on recommendation.

            I bought it with a Planet Waves headstand for the perfect workspace area for my guitars. The combination is cheaper than the Fender work station. Plus, you're not stuck with a non-moving headstand. You can position your guitar in any position that's comfortable for the job you're trying to do.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Headstand Instrument Workbench Stand:

            Yes this is plastic, and yes, it doesn't feel steady when you just hold it in your hand, but it works. When the weight of the guitar is in the notch, the forces exerting on the legs and joints steady the stand and the result is a stable, hands-free lift of the guitar. I used this today to change the strings on my Taylor acoustic and my Les Paul, and it worked great. Two tricks- I used a non-slip yoga mat on the table to provide a soft and tacky surface for the guitar and the stand, and that worked great. As I unwound, wound and restrung both guitars, the stand did a great job of holding the guitar steady. I don't see why this would be any different if I were using it at a gig or studio, it worked.

                    I think it was my mistake to purchase this stand. I have only square neck resonator guitars. This stand is not made for these guitars. I had to find a more sturdy stand, I did.

                      this seems to be a good little tool. It works better than the rolled up towels I have been using. Seems a bit flimsy, so we will see how long it lasts.

                      Not super happy with the light weight materials used in constructing this tool. Seems very fragile. Be sure to work slowly because this will slide or tip easily if your not careful. The tripod should be more stable. Do not use this on a slick surface such as a counter top or table without a cushion of some kind under it.

                          I have been doing my own basic setup work for years and have always used folded/rolled towels on the kitchen counter. I finally decided to invest in a workbench solution with neck rest but opted for this tripod and a yoga mat instead. This is sturdier than I expected and works great for changing strings and setting action and pickup heights. May not be stable enough for fret buffing, but since I have not tried that yet no points taken off. For the price this is terrific.

                          Used it for the first time yesterday to change strings and set up 2 of my guitars. Was concerned at first about stability but it held the neck firmly without wobbling. I like how it folds up for storage. Still, nothing is safer than a shaped wood block for a neck support. Handy product, tho.

                                    The "but..." is because of the price. I made a similar support out of a scrap of 2x4, some scrap foam, scrap carpet, contact adhesive, staples and a base of 6'x10'x1/4' plywood and double backed adhesive tape. Works good comes apart for transport and only cost me time! But it does work and the question is, is it worth the price. You decide!

                                      If you are not a professional Luther, this is just the thing you need for changing strings, cleaning your guitar, and doing minor repairs. The quality is not the best. but like I said if you are not a pro. it's good enough!

                                      This item does what it is supposed to do with a minimal cost. Holds the neck very well and folds into a very small package. Very handy when changing strings or doing other type work on a guitar.

                                            Seems a little flimsy, but woks great. Super for price.
