      I have some very expensive custom built guitars; I'm not going to display then on anything less than THE BEST stand. I've tried many brands; this is all I buy now.
      I have several models of Hercules guitar stands for my collection. No others can compare for safety, ease of use, dependability - best value for your stand money. Of all the stands, this 402B is still my fave because of its portability. So compact; can go anywhere, inside most anything. And they work great - holds the guitar safely & balanced. I have several of this model & am ordering a couple more just because I'm taking more guitars to a gig now. These are going inside my car trunk with the spare tire - they're that compact.
      They work & pack well. THE top quality in a guitar stand.
      Frankly, I'd pay twice as much for a Hercules stand. I've given all my other stands away & replaced with Hercules.

      I would buy it again (and really like it) if the above issues were resolved.
      I was surprised that this had so many great reviews. I have two major problems with it. These coupld be resolved in a new stand should hercules choose to revise the design.

      1.The foam pad at the top extands behind the vertical support. If you have a strap on your guitar or bass it will usually dangle behind that foam pad. When you lift your guitar, the strap catches on the foam pad and lifts up the entire stand! It happens to me about 90% of the time. I find it annoying.

      2. The arms that hold the guitar are padded - thats good. But there are two pins on the arms that are way too short - I cant ever tell if the guitar is seated properly in the arms. I am usually afraid that the guitar is going to slide back into the unpadded area.

      If you dont need the portability - definitely go for something more - even the cheapo A Frames are better than this.

      Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

      Easy to use, folds up nice & small. It says 'guitar stand' but I use it for my 5-string basses, still works great, except the little holder on the right side will hit directly on one of the knobs near the bottom of the guitar. Not a huge deal, but a noteable minor inconvenience.

      With that said, it is extremely portable and I would get another for that reason alone.

          The cable on my Ibanez is on the front of the body, so I can have the guitar plugged in and on the stand with no issues. However, if your cable plugs in on the side of guitar rather than the face, the cable will be in the way when placed on the stand. It's a real small footprint which is great for the living room and is super stable (I just tried to push the guitar over as I'm typing this and I couldn't).

            It is true that a Jazz bass will not be dead center on this stand, but the stand will hold it just fine. I have used it on several gigs with my Fender Jazz bass and the stand works great and holds the bass with no problems whatsoever. I own 2 of these stands now.

            Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

            This is a great little stand. Well built, good price, overall high quality. I would not hesitate to use this stand with my Fender Jazz and P-basses, and I plan to do so. The stand is not a perfect fit for the Jazz model due to the offset body shape of the Jazz, but the bass does fit fine with a slight off-center alignment. The input jack of the P-bass sits somewhat close to the holding arm of the stand. But none of these issues truly interferes with the stand's ability to hold the basses safely. I will be taking 1 or 2 of these compact little gadgets to me for every gig that I go to. And I'm leaving my older bulkier stand at home!

            If you play gigs that involve drunk audience members, clumsy sound techs or other hazards on stage, then I might not recommend this stand for that situation. For that, I would still want a holding arm for the neck.

            I needed a very portable stand for my bass. Also needed to be sturdy (the previous portable was wobbly and caused scratches). GS402 to the rescue!
            Fits nicely in my backpack, and super stable. The only thing I would like better is a dual-purpose stand that could hold either acoustic guitar or electric.
            Though it was more than I wanted to pay, considering the price of the instrument it cradles it's worth it.

            Sturdy, portable, great looking. Love it and my other 2 herc Stands. Single and a double. The best stands I've ever had. Keep up the good work. Theyre not called Hercules for no reason.

            Solid and Super Portable

            By Mick

            from Massachusetts

            Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

            Seriously--Why haul the bigger Hercules stands, this works just as well anyway
            Well padded in all the right places. Put my 335 in it and tried to knock it down with the kind of light hits you would get on stage and it wouldn't bite the dust. Folds up so small it fits in my shoulder accessory case and takes up no more room than a 15' cable. Will fit in most gig bag pouches.
            Rugged steel, precision ball bearings lock in place and release for easy fold up. Dense padding in all the right places.
            A freaking steal at this price.

            VERY,VERY nice!!

            Comments about Hercules Stands GS402B Mini Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Stand:

            Buy the the stand and be happier.
            It works very well for electric guitars. Doesn't hold acoustics obviously but all of my electrics are held perfectly. It also surprised me how stable it was. Of course if ya drop kick your guitar it's gonna fall. It is very compact when folded up. It fits in my guitar cases and that's very handy.
            Made of metal and feels very sturdy.
            24 bucks for a very good stand.
