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.

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

              LTD H-308 fits with room to spare. Well constructed with good balance. I've had guitars bumped off of cheap stands. This is worth the extra money

                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.

                Can't believe I'm reviewing a guitar stand!!! But yes folks, this stand is that good!! Heavy Duty and very secure. I have used Ultimate in the past, but form now on this will be my stand of choice. Oh...and this quality item also came and one of the nicest boxes I've seen in a while. If you see this at a good price...pick one up!!

                Comments about Hercules Stands Universal Guitar Stand:

                This is the best guitar / bass stand I've ever owned. I can't speak to longevity because I've only had it for a few weeks. I use it for my 6-string bass which has a wide neck. It fits better than any other stand I've used. The auto open / close works perfectly. The size / height also fit with no issue. My bass is a 35 1/2" scale but a larger scale shouldn't be a problem.
                The only con, besides the price, would be the size for transport. The design makes it rather large even when folded up and dis-assembled. If the yoke at the top was foldable, it would make it a smaller footprint. Currently, I have to use a large duffle bag to fit it along with misc cords, headphones whereas before, I could fit my A-Frame stand and other supplies in a smaller bag. You would think that at this price, it would come with a carry bag.
