I use the acoustic version all the time, they are sturdy and portable. With electric guitars the output jack may conflict with the stand. I found this with a Les Paul copy I was playing this afternoon. For the benefit of all mankind I got out my other electric guitars with the jack on the side of the guitar. The (real) Les Paul Studio was OK. The jack on my Fender Jazz American Deluxe cleared the stand but was pretty low to he ground. It would be OK with an angled plug. On the Ric 360/12, the Ric-O-Sound jack was clear but the standard jack was resting on the stand. That was with the guitar standing straight up. It would work if the guitar was leaning slightly to one side. I got out my Ric 4003S. It only has the standard output jack, not the stereo output like most 4003's. If you have a "normal" 4003 you might have the same experience I had with the 360/12. With the Hofner (Icon) violin bass, it was sitting on the jack, and it was a snug fit on the stand.
This stand would also work well for banjo. Don't ask me how I know.

When I opened the box and first viewed the quality, I felt the stand was sturdy and well built; however, I quickly found that there are some design flaws. I have an Ibanez bass as well as an Ibanez RG series guitar. Neither one will fit in the stand correctly while having a plug in the jack. Also, on my bass the round pad at the top rests half on the neck and half off, where the neck meets the body. One wrong move and the guitar would knock over fairly easily. If you have a full-sized, strat-style guitar, which has the jack on the top of the body as opposed to the end, this stand may work well--otherwise, don't bother.

NICE PORTABLE STAND

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

I really like this because it is portable and lightweight. It does a great job of holding my SG, however, you must be careful near it because of the design, a "bump" into may be a costly one. Great for home studio and practice. A great alternative to the traditional style and this one does not bother Nitrocellular finishes.
Nice folding for compact travel to and from practice and home use.

Light weight design.

Nice padding.

Great price.
Light weight does not always mean cheap, however I can see where this may be an issue in the future if not handled right or stored correctly.
Got mine on SALE. Great Value.

    Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

    I purchesed this and the Fender stand to see which I liked best. The FS100E is slightly larget then the Fender Compact Guitar stand but it is more stable, better designed, holds the guitar more securly, easier to unfold and more protection against scratching the finish. Bottom line I purchased three additional FS100E to hold some of my Guitars.

    Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

    Does the job, folds up small. Last a long time. What more could you ask for. Sure someone can knock over your instrument if they walk into it(just like with any other stand) but for those situations where you dont want to lean your axe on your amp or cant put it back in the case between sets, this is the stand for you. Especially if you dont want a lot of extra stuff to carry.
    I didnt get mine online and I remember thinking I must've been driving the music stores sales staff nuts as I tried out literally EVERY portable stand they had & ended up finally choosing this one.



    I wanted something that could hold the awkward bottom curvature of a Jazz Bass steadily(which ironically I feel this does better than Fender's won portable, fold-up stand!). I wanted something that could also fold up as compact as possible tofit in most gig bags without taking up a ton of room. The fact that it had good padded bumpers to protect the instrument helped too.

    I think it took me a couple of times to get used the best way to set the instrument in it so it was the most stable.
    A couple of months after I got it, A keyboard player traversing the stage stepped on it the wrong way & ended up bending one of the legs so that it doesnt line up the way it used to but it still works fine.



    I'm still using it as my main on-stage stand (it's at LEAST 3-4 years old). That in itself should say something as I'm pretty picky with gear. I work a lot & cant afford to waste a lot of time, space or effort lugging around stuff that doesnt do the job & then some.
    I'm very pleased. I'd get another in a heart beat. I think they make one with wider legs for acoustics too.

      At first I was skeptical because it was just so small. But that is the beauty of it, you can just about fit it into your back pocket. It is surpriseingly sturdy and I feel much better knowing that it will not mar the finish on my guitar.

      Stable Folding Stand

      from New Jersey Shore

      Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

      It's a relief not to have to transport my older stand. This stand is so lightweight that you hardly know that you're carrying it. Since I'm physically challenged, that's a really good thing. So far it provides a stable stand for my guitar. I'm wondering though if it would support a wider guitar than the SG. I also own the On-Stage Universal A-Frame guitar stand which is much heavier.
      The stand looks better in person than it does in the pictures. It is lightweight, and folds up small so that it can be transported very easily. It provides a stable stand for my Gibson SG. I'm told that the foam on the stand won't damage the nitrocellulose finish of the guitar. I hope that's true.
      I just purchsed the stand a couple of weeks ago, so I'm hoping that it lasts for a while. It appears to be put together solidly.
      It looks like a good value for the money.

      Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

      Works with my Schecter Custom 4 bass and my Fender Jazz. My old Fender stand couldn't reliably hold my Jazz without me setting it down carefully to make sure it wouldn't fall over. It's not an issue anymore. There's enough friction from the foam to keep it held well.
      Feature wise it should do three things, fold up neatly, unfold easily and quickly, and lastly hold my guitar(s). It does all of these.
      Solid construction, nice foam padding, good joints where it pivots. Feels solid.
      Inexpensive, good stand, not much to argue about.

              I was already using the acoustic guitar stand and was very satisfied with it. When I bought a Strat, I bought this stand for it. I like it for several reasons. I carry my small gear items in a tote bag, and both my stands fold very compactly and take up little room. Unfolded and in use they are very strong and stable.

              Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

              I bought 1 of each for the a frames because I think the traditional guitar stands are way too flimsy and do not hold up an electric unless you perform a balancing act to do so. I've had a 79 rick fall and hit hard (luckily on carpet), but the tears would have fell on tile. I've read all the worries about rubber on nitro cellulose, and knew I had to change it up. This guitar stand has the foam wheels, and won't hurt your finish. The guitar stands the most upright out of all the A frames, so it has less of a footprint. most of the A frames lean your guitar so far back, that the footprint is misleading and also unbalancing. The head of the guitar is almost directly over the back foot on the tripod, therefore good balance. There are no sharp edges to hurt your guitar, small foot print, sturdy, well built. This is the A frame you want.

                  I now have 8 of these stands. They are compact but are very stable and hold my guitars very well. They have a small foot print so the size of the guitar is the determining factor in how many items can be in a given space not the size of the stand. It holds the guitar by the body not the neck. Very compact design that folds up to become very portable. Not quite as compact as the Fender unit, but I think the Fretrest unit is far superior in design and usability. They have my vote.

                      This is a great light, portable stand for a gigging musician who doesn't want to lug a large, heavy stand to a small gig. It's not as secure as the larger Ultimate and Hercules models, so I wouldn't use it where people might wander by and bump into it (there is nothing to support the neck of your guitar). But for smaller venues it's fine as long as you tuck your guitar away from traffic.

                      And a big plus: the stand unfolds securely into position and stays that way, unlike cheap imitations with loosely connected legs that shift and wobble with the slightest touch.

                      Note that the stands (I've bought 4 of them) come with rubber collars on the legs that don't show on the website photos.

                        Every guitar player needs a guitar stand for their instrument. There are dozens of choices these days, and most stands are 'good'. However, this folding A-Frame guitar stand is the best of all worlds. It is quality built, not 'flimsy', won't scratch your guitar, is light and will fit all instruments. Most important for me, is that it folds up nice and is so compact that it will fit into my gig bag easily. Other stands (tube stands etc.) work great, but they have to be packed separately when you load your equipment for a gig. I've even lost some of the parts on my stands before, after loading equipment. I have one for my Strat and I liked this stand so much that I bought a second one for my Tele. Buy one. You won't be disappointed!

                        Someone on the Internt suggested that this stand could be used to hold up my computer screen. The screen had a broken plastic leg. It work perfectly. Thank you for the product.

                        Might be better for guitar, but after leaving my bass on it for 10 minutes or so, it tipped and dumped my bass on the floorIt's simply not balanced well enough.

                        Its about average for a guitar stand in price, but is great in quality. The padding doesn't ruin any finishing on the guitar, which is what worried me the most when shopping for a good stand. I don't see any problems with it as it displays my SG like a beauty. Its low profile, portable, and easy to use. Buy it. Best neckless stand you can get online for cheap.
