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.

Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stands (2-Pack):

I made this purchase based on the mostly positive reviews, but also the price. At first happy with the purchase. It did the job well of holding the guitar. But today, not even 3 weeks after buying it, the neck support snapped off! Upon inspection it is just a cheap glob of solder connecting the neck support ring to the support arm. I looked at the second one and it is the same so I expect it to break soon too. Bottom line Folks, don't waste your money on this cheap Chinese made product. If your guitar is important enough to you to buy a stand for it then spend a little extra and get a decent one, not this piece of junk.

Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stands (2-Pack):

I purchased a pair of these last year and as a gigging musician we normally go though a pair of these in a year for whatever reason. The ones we just received are NOT like the old model. Yes, the rear leg is about 2 inches shorter than the previous model which makes this stand just about useless in a gig environment. It might be OK for the corner of your bedroom. Also the post that the cradle sits in has been completely removed and now there is just a hole in the tube that the cradle fits in. It is not a good design. I know they are inexpensive, but they are not even worth the money.

Great price, but be careful of your guitar finish

By Guitar Collector-sNXuh

Comments about Musician's Gear Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitar Stands (2-Pack):

One of the better deals for guitar stands. Most useful for studio or situations where it will not be moved around too much or packed with other heavy equipment. I would not recommend bringing to gigs, it won't last too long that way. Also, you'll need to cover the padding with something if your instrument has a nitro-cellulose laquer finish.
Extends to a decent height, neck rest can be set high enough to clear a jumbo acoustic body. Comes with a slip-on rubber retainer to help keep guitar from falling forward out of the stand if bumped from behind.
Lightweight, thin, cheaper metal. The #1 problem is the material used for the padding cannot come in contact with nitro-cellulose laquer finished instruments or it can discolor it. This means no vintage Fender, no Gibson, no Gretsch (which is what I own and use). Only modern Fender and budget guitars should be set on this stand as it comes from the factory.

My workaround is I went to the craft/hobby store and bought some stick-on felt and have glued that over the foam padding. Not sure I would trust these at a gig. They are thin flimsy metal and could be easily bent just packing them in your car/truck with an amp cabinet. I use them in a studio where they aren't subjected to being thrown around with heavier equipment.
For the money, it's a screamin' deal.

        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.

          Don't waste your money. Set my Taylor 714 in it when first set it up and with the short leg and the guitar not centered it toppled right over so out the window it went.
