Although probably the most innovative compact and interesting looking guitar stand, after working with it for a year I have to give it a thumbs down. Fender Strats because of their contoured body will not sit in the stand as well as a guitar with an even lower back like a Les Paul so that one has to take a few more seconds to carefully turn the Strat if you want it to be optimally supported. Your guitar will also sit in the stand with a strong leaning-back angle which you may not like and also may present you with the uncomfortable feeling of neck vulnerability. The stand is easy to accidentally step on when its empty if your not keeping an eye out for it. If you do that, the back leg(s) will bend and you may have to disassemble it in order to bend the legs back properly like I had to. After doing that, a little while later someone else stepped on it and bend it again so that one of the legs no longer compacts. It's a cool stand but it's got too many design shortcomings for the road or anywhere in my opinion. I also feel it's overpriced. I would stay away from it. On the other hand it will fit in your guitar pouch - I'll sacrifice that luxury for more security!

I bought this stand because I wanted something that would fit in my gig bag. While it's great from a portability standpoint, it's not the most stable stand out there. You really gotta make sure that your guitar is seated properly, especially if you have a guitar with an asymmetical body like a strat.

It will not hold fender basses at all.

Also, the guitar leans very far back.

One really nice positive is that it functions superbly as a tilt back amp stand if you don't extend the arms that hold the guitar body. I've been using it as such and ended up buying the TravLite model, which is 100 x more stable and still fits in my gig bag, albeit not as compact.
This is a great idea. It's nice and compact, but it falls short of it's intended purpose.
It seems sturdy enough. Haven't had any problems.
I don't think this stand is worth the price. The TravLite model is less expensive and is miles ahead of this one. This should be less expensive.

    Easy to set up & tear down. Fits nicely in my Reunion Blues Continental Bass gig bag. I've spent over $100 trying to find the best, sturdiest stand and found what I needed with the Hercules iStand.

    great for electric guitar only

    By Cthuludawn21

    from Albany, NY

    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

    I want to start off by saying that the features on this thing are amazing, It's a major breakthrough in stands. it takes a bit of force to pop the lid up, but everything slides and locks with authority. I put my Ibanez RG3ex1 on this thing and it holds solid. I would recommend this stand to anyone, especially due to its amazing portability, fitting right in the front pouch of my gigbag. So small. one small sidenote: do not buy this for your bass. I tried putting my six string monster bass on it, and it acted like a Weeble. It wobbled, but I took the bass off before it could fall down. this is a great solid stand for electric guitar, but due to it's footprint and low support height, your bass will be in peril. I hope Hercules has plans for a bass version in the future.

    Very neat idea

    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

    I just got this stand for Fathers day. I think it is really a great stand for a gigging musician. The way it folds up into a disk is just a great idea. No more carrying around those long tube stands, and having them fall apart as you go.This thing will fit anywhere. And when the guitar is on the stand it really does look like it is just floating there, like a fine work of art.I mostly likley won't use this im my home, but on the road this will come along every time.Highly recommended!

    This this is sweet!

    Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

    I lead a praise and worship choir and need a very portable setup with the smallest footprint available. I own other Hercules stands and love them, but was a bit spectacle on just how sturdy such a small stand can be. Given that I trust the Hercules name, I took a chance and I am very glad that I did. This thing sets up in no time is surprisingly sturdy. I own both the electric and acoustic models and so far they have been great. And yes, they do fit nicely into a gig bag pouch and are a great conversation piece.

    I purchased 2 of these as novelty gifts and were worth the price for "stupid deals". Otherwise far over-priced for what they offer the consumer. Too compact to offer sufficient stability for most guitars.

      I use it to hold a micro electric bass, or a mandolin during gigs. It folds up easily and doesn't take up much room when stored.

        Comments about Hercules Stands istand Electric Guitar Stand:

        Bought this on sale and the biggest problem I have so far is I didn't get two. This fits and secures my Jaguar. I can set it up then slap or bump into my guitar and it doesn't knock over. What else you do need a stand to do? Rubber holds really well and it looks all futuristic when you pull it out. Being relatively the same price as any other guitar stand, I am more than satisfied with the hercules stand.

        I needed a simple floor stand for an electric guitar. This one is pretty fair. I like the compact shape and design but feel the legs could be about a half inch longer for added stability.
