I've been buying these exact same stands for years. They're built great for the price and they work just fine. I've probably owned 20 or more of them without a single issue. They're stable, they never fall over, no guitar of mine has ever fallen off of one, and anyone who claims that they're junk is probably either nitpicking or has unreasonably high demands for such a simple piece of equipment.

As others have noted, though, the one downside to these (and many other stands that cost considerably more, as well) is that the foam padding causes a chemical reaction with nitro-finished guitars and will slowly, but surely, eat the finish off of them. If your guitar is poly-finished (like the vast majority of guitars in the world are), this stand is fine for your guitar. If you're not sure whether or not your guitar is nitro-finished, then it's pretty safe to say it's not. However, if your finish is yellowed and has a lot of hairline cracks all over it, then you may have a nitro finish. Nitro is mostly found on vintage guitars or expensive ones built for tone junkies. Those sort of guitars don't come cheap, so if you spent less than four figures on your guitar, I would trust it to this stand. If in doubt, though, it might be wise to find out for sure.

For all other finishes, this is a great stand and the price simply can't be beat. Two thumbs way up on this one.

Again, this stand LOOKS nice and sturdy, especially for the money. But the foam on it destroys the finish on certain guitars, So, therefore, I'm going with all 'Terrible' ratings. Selling this is like manufacturing a golf bag that has a metal-corroding liner!
Okay, these were listed for $4.99 apiece. A veritable steal, so I ordered four of them to have around the house for guests and to have an instrument at hand wherever I happened to be. I got the stands, they look very nice for the money, and perfect for my need. Or so I thought. On each stand is a little tag that states, "Attention: Not recommended for guitars with nitro cellulous lacquer finish. The material of foam might cause unexpected chemical reaction that may deteriorate the finish". Great. So, I called my local music store and spoke to their guitar guy. Apparently, there's no easy way to tell if your instrument HAS a finish like this. He also said that this type of foam makes marks on the neck and body that look like burn marks. So, I'm not about to set any of my guitars on them! His suggestion was to get some tape or other type of cover for the rubber parts of these stands. If I do that, the instrument will likely slip and slide off the stand.
This is the music equivalent of one of those ties you can buy on the street in any big city. Sure, you're getting a low cost article, but the caveat is that's going to be ugly or unusable. The money I'm out on these stands is NOT going to break me, or anyone else for that matter. But I want to warn the rest of you before you leave your D-28 sitting on one of them.

Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stand:

Just like everything else, things change. Historically, I've bought Musicians Friend guitar stands and for my home studio was satisfied with function/value.
But the stand I received this time has been reengineered (product photo appears to be the old model). I think that the tublar metal frame is of a thinner gauge and most of all is NOT Stable! The bottom hanger of the unit now engages with the upright through a hole in the upright. The old model had a sleeve that extended about 2" that engaged with the bottom hanger. But the biggest difference is that the support legs are very short. If you walk by and brush against the unit get ready to catch your guitar. The sale price is the only thing that's keeping it here and the fact I bought it for visiting musicians. MOST DEFINITELY DON'T USE IN A TRAFFIC AREA!

A cheap stand for your older guitars

By RockRchick

from New Jersey

Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stand:

I do not have a thousand dollar guitar so this is fine for me, but for anyone with a guitar with any real worth, value or sentiment I would suggest something else. I like the idea of the foam, it really makes me feel safe putting my guitar against it because I know it wont get scratched BUT before I even placed my acoustic into it it felt top heavy. Thinking the guitar would weigh it down, I placed it in and it does not feel sturdy. It is stable enough as to where it will stay put if it is untouched but if you were to catch a foot on it, or say, accidentally hit it when your vacuuming....it will most likely fall forward. I don't think I want to wait for that day to come so I will probably spend a little more cash for something a little more stable.

    I use this guitar stand instead of putting my guitar in the case all the time. It makes my guitar easily accessible and so I play it more often. I also use it when I play several instruments at a session.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stand:

      I've purchased several of these in the past when they have been on sale. They have never been safe for nitro finishes but other than that they have been fine for an inexpensive stand. The newest version is a far cry from what use to be an acceptable stand. The back leg once 6 inches long is now only 4! Far too short to hold a guitar safely and down right dangerous for a bass. The gage of tubing is substantially smaller making it even less stable. The side legs have lost an inch and a ¼ in length further destabilizing the stand. I know guys that would buy these in bulk for guitar shows. I wouldn't put even the cheapest guitar on one of these now.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stand:

      This is the first stand I've bought for my electric since buyiing it 3 years ago other than the one I got when I first got it.
      I wasn't sure what to expect, buying it online. A picture really does only say so much. Because of this, I'd like to write a detailed product description.
      Pros: It is heavy. Lots of metal for a cheap stand. Sturdy and secure. Has a safety catch at the top to keep from falling out. Sits my electric guitar or bass straight up; you don't have to worry about the bass head hitting or leaning against the wall.
      Cons: The ONLY con is that it is not compact or foldable. Not ideal for touring/gigging. Since I almost only use it at home, it's perfect for me. Guitars look great on it!
      Bottom line: If the above sounds good, buy it. No regrets.

      The stand knocks over easy. center of ballance is too high. Not adjustable. They give you a note after you buy it,that the foam reacts to lacquer
      finish THEY SHOULD GIVE THIS WARNING BEFORE YOU BUY IT. Most top end guitars ARE lacquer finish. SO I keep my poly-u finish guitars in them and face them towards the wall so they don't fall.

          I am just keeping guitars on stands in the house.
          For this price they can't be beat.
          Looked solid to me, at least for what I am using them for.
          Great!
