I bought 3 Hercules Universal Guitar Stands, probably 10 years ago. They worked great for several years. They are stable. They hold my guitars very securely with the neck latching action. They support the guitar body along the bottom edge where the body is stronger, as opposed to in the middle of the back, where acoustic guitars are rather fragile. I use them with a standard narrow neck dreadnaught, a semi solid body electric and a standard 2-inch neck classical. They all fit perfectly.

On the down side, they are a little bulky for transport, mostly due to the solid neck support tube. But the folding versions look less strong, so I think this trade-off falls in favor of the Universal. Also the bright yellow sliding leg yoke is not the prettiest thing.

The really big problem is the height adjuster/grip. This thing is made out of plastic and coated with some rubbery stuff. After 5 or 6 years, the rubbery stuff became really sticky and gooey. I have tried all sorts of cleaning solvents and cannot get rid of the sticky goo. And now one of the lock handle things in the adjustment grip is broken off completely, so I cannot set the height anymore.

OK, so maybe 6 years is a good long life for this sort of thing. I just feel annoyed that the thing didn't fail by wearing out from use. It is actually the material and design of a critical part that has failed. Anyway, I have looked at the other stands and decided that this neck gripping gizmo is so superior to all the others, that I am going to just suck it up and buy 3 new Hercules Universals. Just be aware that you will need to replace the stand after 5 or 6 years.

When this item arrived I was excited as I've always liked Hercules and needed this style of stand for my onstage setup. The stand never made it on stage because, after a single mishap where the folded stand slipped to the floor, the plastic head snapped right at the point of connection to the neck... I'm glad this happened at home and not on stage or or tour. Don't waste your time and money on this model... instead get the Hercules Single Guitar Stand with Folding Yoke SKU #453081000000000, it's only a little bit more and the head + connection is much more sound AND it folds up more compactly.

    I have been using the"old school" guitar stands and would always lose a part or it just wasn't stable enough. I finally bought the Hercules stand and never have to worry again.

    Comments about Hercules Stands Universal Guitar Stand:

    Great guitar stand.
    This is a great guitar stand especially if you play a heavy wide necked guitar like my five string Fender Jazz bass. This stand does everything you want it to do and it comes easily off the stand when you need it.
    Good quality.
    A little on the pricey side.

        These stands are great for those guitars with shapes that aren't ideal for a regular style stand. The stand seems to be well built and does a great job at what its supposed to do.... hold my guitar.

                          Very nice Hercules stand. I like it for my long neck basses. The fact that there is no bottom cradle makes this work so much better than the cradle versions for me. Just set the neck in the yoke and the yoke locks engage. The base rests against the padded legs. Height is adjustable to keep the guitar off the floor and not crimp any cables. Works for my Thunderbird just fine.
                          Travels easy enough. I put a small piece of tape on the stop hole I use for the yoke height so that set up is quick. Others have mentioned the lock breaking but mine has not and feels sturdy enough to last a while. I move this once or twice a week so no, not daily but then it does not stay in the same place all the time. So far, I am happy with it and other folks have since bought one as they saw how well it worked.
                          Of course, some people can tear up anything so beware of the throwers and snatchers. You can beat an anvil to pieces if you try hard enough. If this gives me any trouble, I'll return to update but for now, Good to go.

                            First stand I've found that holds a guitar by the neck that can handle the wide necks of an 8-string guitar. It also works great for my 6 & 7 string guitars, acoustic guitars, and my basses.

                                  I found these stands while shopping for guitars last year after decades of not playing; I was in the GC in Corpus Christi, Texas looking at gear to get back into playing and had a chance to used this stand while trying out different rigs.

                                  I immediately liked the security and ease of use this stand provides.

                                  This is the only stand I have and will buy - 8 so far. :-)

                                        A wonderful product at a wonderful price. I am careful with the stand, own multiple stands from the same company and have not have a problem with them. I use them at home, and do not bring them outside my home. Great company who makes wonderful products at very reasonable price point.
