they are inexpensive and they hold your guitars as they were designed to do. i don't go on gigs or tours, so i can't speak on that aspect of it. i simply use mines at home to hold and display my collection of guitars. and for that, they work just fine.

For a cheap stand these do hold a guitar and serve their purpose, however, the old "you get what you pay for" adage is certainly true - these are not as stable as stands that cost only a little more and they also have some quality control issues. If you are looking for gigging stands or a stand for a prized guitar you don't want kissing the floor on occasion if you aren't careful - you will want a different stand. Read on for full details.

CONS:

As I said, these stands do hold a guitar, but they have a fundamental design flaw (back leg is too short) that make them unstable. They are easily tipped to either side (back and to the left or back and to the right) with a slight bump or when trying to secure the neck strap without also holding the stand. The strap is kind of difficult to secure regardless and just results in an "If I'm going down, you're going down with me, pal!" situation for your guitar. Unfortunately, the guitar stand can't say that in Kurt Russell's voice, so it's decidedly uncool if it happens.

Quality control isn't great on these, the neoprene rubber tubing on mine have a few permanently squished flat spots. The metal in the U shaped piece that holds the guitar isn't uniformly bent on both sides, making the guitar sit more on one side than the other. There is a small spot on one where the black finish spray missed. I used the best pieces from both stands to make the best stand possible with what I was given, and the other stand that is slightly more "Island of Misfit Toys" will be my visiting guitarist stand. ;)

These do break down into 3 separate pieces, but it's not really travel friendly as you have 3 pieces to keep up with and they are awkwardly shaped. I don't think it would fit in most gig bags, and definitely not in a guitar case. A one piece collapsable stand is much more travel friendly.

Item is not exactly as pictured, the rubber feet are shaped differently and the back leg appears to be longer in the picture. I think they are just using an old stock photo and the design has changed slightly since then.

PROS:

They do have a warning tag on them stating they are not for nitro finish guitars, so if you miss that in the product description or are giving these out to friends/family, there is one last chance to get out before accidentally melding it to a nitro finish guitar.

There are two metal nibs in the U shaped cradle part that keep it from slipping out of the hole in the base of the stand, works great as far as I can tell. I have also had no problems with the plastic and metal screw in piece that holds the top part of the stand in place.

It arrived very well packed, though they do not come in individual boxes, they are just three pieces (the screw part comes already in the stand) neck, base, cradle, in a plastic bag that is taped shut. I am sure no damage occurred to mine during shipping.

CONCLUSION:

All in all I got what I expected and paid for, and I am generally a careful person, so I doubt I will have a lot of issues with these in my home. I keep my guitars in their cases when I'm done with them for the day to keep them away from dust/dirt, violent accidental damage and various creeping damage. Just like cookies are now a "sometimes" snack for Cookie Monster, stands should be only a "sometimes" way of storing a guitar when you aren't using it.

For anyone interested, these do have a Made in China sticker on them.

New electrics. Do not use on guitar with older finishes. Will not use on my 1988 Taylor 710.

            I have several of these. They are inexpensive and keep you from putting your guitars in precarious places. I have two that I keep in the living room, and they don't particularly stand out as an eyesore when not in use. I have three in my music studio after the neck horseshoe broke off due to a poor tack weld. They work fine for my use.

                It seems like a good product for any type of guitar you would like to use it for, it is a little bulky if you have to bring to places but it does compact a bit

                Well, these were super cheap, but unfortunately not up to par with most guitar stands I've used. The back leg is too short, and the stand tips over very easily. I learned the hard way when my acoustic guitar took a dive right off the thing...day 1. Oops.

                  Seems like there is never a time one couldn't use an extra stand. Now I don't need to lean an instrument on a chair or other precarious place while I attend to another matter. Bundle of two stands was perfect. Sometimes if I feel like playing the acoustic out of doors I have a place to put the instrument. The product is well constructed and stable and the price for both with free shipping was quite unbeatable.
