OVERVIEW

The Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke features the innovative Hercules Auto Grab System (AGS) yoke: the arms turn in and up with the weight of your guitar to hold it securely and simply open up when you lift it off. Plus the yoke is designed to fold down for easy packing. The legs and all contact points with the instrument feature Specially Formulated Foam (SFF) rubber to protect your guitar's finish. Also features the Hand Grip Height Adjuster, which makes adjustments a breeze with a locking pin to secure the stand in place. A folding backrest flips down to support your guitar and back up for storage and transport.

All Hercules stands are safe for most nitrocellulose lacquer finish guitars*.

*Hercules tests for many types of nitro finish, however some guitar manufacturers change their nitro mixture often. Guitars should never be stored on a stand...always in the case.

Never accidentally knock your guitar off the stand again.

These stands are the best designed Guitar stands in the business, however the plastic/resin grip and thumb screw rapidly deteriorated , became super sticky and cracked making the locking mechanism unusable and finally un repairable. The "Best Designed Stand" should also use the Best Nylon or Resins available that would insure a longer usable life of this expensive stand. Thank you Musicians Friend for standing behind the "Lifetime " warrantee on these stands:)

The negative reviews here are absolutely true. The glowing reviews are from new owners who have not experienced the breakdown just yet. I loved these stands at first myself...so I ended up buying 4 of them. ALL FOUR developed the sticky/gummy handle and ultimately the broken height adjustment and flying spring that others have described. I hate it because these looked to be really cool stands....but they are not. The Hercules guys ought to do something about all these stands failing in exactly the same way...but they have not.

      Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

      Easy to assemble and to use. Very stable stand. I do not worry about accidental tumbles when bumped up against. Adjusts to my desired height making it very easy to use whether sitting or standing. Compacts for easy storage and transporting. I bought this in June, 2015 and so far there has been no deterioration of the padding or the knobs as some have reported. I am very satisfied with the performance and appearance of this stand and currently recommend it to everyone. After having bought many stands that have not lasted a year, if this stand lasts two years it would have paid for itself with money to spare. As sturdy as this stand is, it should last me for many years to come.

          I have 4 of these for 4 years and bought 2 additional as gifts the first year I had mine. As others have said, the plastic adjustment grip gets a coating of sticky goo all over it and finally the adjustment does not work as the grip sticks and will not release. This has happened to all six that I have purchased. All stands were used exclusively in climate controlled studios.

              The top clamp will clear most guitar necks, except a Mosrite. It clamps down on the strings. Not good.

              Comments about Hercules Stands Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke:

              Stand was pretty nice out of the box,and held my basses pretty well. Then they start to suck. 1) The yoke handle/lock gets gummy and your hand sticks to it, or you set it up at and outdoor gig and take 5 lbs of dirt or lawn home with you if you lay it on the ground when loading in or out 2) gummy tightening knob on the legs. 3) the lock handle snaps off on the yoke from the degrading plastic, and shoots 20 yards into the audience, the yoke collapses, and your $2000 Rick crashes onto the stage.
              Someone at Hercules needs to review their manufacturing process and vendors, and throw their plastics guy out the nearest window.
              DO NOT buy this stand until these amateurs figure out how to produce a long lasting, reliable product.

                This stand is great. I used to use the A Frame stands but my Thunderbirds always sat crooked on them. This is the best stand for any guitar, and the plus is that the body shape doesn't matter. They easily fold down to take to a gig, and set up fast and I know I don't have to worry about my guitars/basses.

                  I bought this after seeing one close up at a friends casual gig. It is solidly built and very fast to use on stage when changing between instruments as I do frequently. I wish they made on in Mandolin size.

                    I bought this for a near pristine Gibson Firebird. Firebirds don't fit all that well in a body rest style stand. The headstock area is well padded and has fluid movement. The wide base and the upright angle make a very stable stand. I own an older Hercules stand ... this one is higher quality and more stable. I would have no reservations about buying another one or recommending to a friend.

                      I have a 3/4 and full size guitar And a banjo. They all fit nicely on the sand it it holds them firm.
                      The only thing that would make this thing better is for it to have silver and gold in it somewhere.
