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.

        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.

          Comments about Hercules Stands Universal Guitar Stand:

          DO NOT BUY THIS STAND! The mostly metal stand seemed really stout until the plastic (!!!) head fell off, having broken at a rivet before I even opened the box. It's all for the better- that weak rivet point in the plastic head is bound to break off and drop your prized ax at the worst possible time. A decent metal head would have made this a nice stand- there's a really cool concept for retaining the neck in the stand head.
          I love Musicians Friend- have bought from y'all for years- but you need to pull this item from sale before it breaks someone's baby.

          Comments about Hercules Stands Universal Guitar Stand:

          My wife bought me this stand as an early Christmas gift. It is a good stand that is very sturdy. The only thing I am concerned about is the foam wearing out and allowing guitars to slip through the yoke. It would be great if the width of the yoke was adjustable or rotatable to accommodate asymmetrical headstocks like stratocasters and telecasters.

              I ordered 2 of these a few weeks ago. I was totally impressed with how they lock in the guitars and release them at a touch. I just bought 3 more to replace all my older stands..... Really nice
