Item serves it purpose. Bought as a rack but the case makes it look nicer plus you can use it on the road. Worth more than its price and its definitely value for money. Could fit 7 electric guitars but need to carefully place and position the guitars though to avoid bumping onto each other. Currently able to fit my 3 acoustic guitar and 2 electric guitars. The only bad point is that one of the rubber pads was a bit dented when it was opened from the package. That was the only downer on the item.

When assembled correctly, it is stable. Mine arrived with all the inside fold up side leg screws (2 Phillips in each of the 2 hinges, per leg) loose or half out. This was the same on both sides. These hinges hold the folding legs to the case and attach to the fold up legs. Legs are hollow square tubing. (There are 2 legs that fold up and you attach a top bar by sliding it on to the legs. That's what holds the guitar neck padded slots. Very simple, it has a push in tab and then snaps securely onto the fold up leg.

The hard part to repair was the top part of each hinge has a small bolt with a very small nut on its backside, inside the fold up leg. Have I lost you yet?

I had to carefully place the backing nut on a piece of tape wrapped around a half unfolded paper clip in order to carefully reach inside the square tubing, while holding a hinge, with a threaded bolt, hoping to get them to line up. I'm patient, but it took about 10 minutes to finally get it done.

Ok so it's secure now. I do like it. The old "Anvil" style outer case and latches seem road worthy enough if you were going to take if on the ah, er....road.

Mine will sit on a folding table and keep 7 guitars within easy reach. At the moment it's holding 2 Les Paul's, 2 PRS, 1 Strat, 1 Melody Maker, 1 Kramer w/bar. That's about 45-50 pounds of instruments. The case probably weighs in at 20-25 pounds. Table is not an issue, and the case feels solid with the guitars. They are leaned in at a good angle, and there are Velcro adjustable separator padded tubes for the bottom of the guitars. Adjustable for width as needed.

I give it 2 stars because of the quality control of the factory assembly issues. Since it will not leave my studio, I can only guess that it would be road worthy, but it does appear it will be.

I'd buy it again,(but I can't recommend it to a friend without a warning) but I'd be prepared to check over the fold up legs carefully. Had I not, I could have spilled a few costly guitars.

    This is perfect for my home studio to save room versus individual stands. At first I thought it was pretty flimsy until a forum user pointed out the locks inside the lid. You have to search for them, but they are there and they work great. Very steady now and I trust it to hold my 'girls' safely. Great product at a great price. Well worth the money.

      Great stand for the money. It seems a bit shakey at first, but your gear is very safe in it.

        Recently purchased this case as a Christmas present for my young son who plays professionally. He was so excited and said 2 things I just loved. "Now I can take more than 2 guitars to my gigs." & "Now all my babies can rest together!" Let's just say it was a hit!

          Listen up guys! A lot of people are giving this case a bad rep, but I'm sure its because they havent discovered the hidden supports in the top part of the case. Two little arms swing out to grab the vertical stabilizers. It makes it 10x more stable!!. However, the only negative feature is the flat bottom. Most, if not all guitars, have strap holders which should influence the design of this case so the weight of the guitar isnt resting on the strap holder. BUT, if you angle the guitar the right way it seems to alleviate this issue.

          Not the best

          Best Uses

          • Performances

          The biggest complaint on this is the workmanship. After using for a few gigs, one of the fasteners that hold the lid together became nearly impossible to fasten fully. It'll work once in six or seven times. Small pieces from the hinges fall off and won't stay where they're supposed. The carrying handle hardware comes loose if you don't check it each time you move it. One side of the lid doesn't seat properly, which may have had something to do with the latch not operating, correctly, and since it's riveted together, there's no way to fix it beyond ripping it apart and putting it back together.

          We knew it would never hold seven acoustic guitars without them banging into one another. That we could live with, but all this other chintzy stuff was disappointing to find out.

            The tubular steel frame is held together at the corners with cheap plastic L-brackets. Leaned on it slightly and the corner brackets cracked and the frame collapsed. I have it held together with duct tape now. Downright stupid piece of engineering.

                        Solidly built. Looks like it will take some punishment on the road. One glitch which I hope fixes itself, the holes on the crossbar did not line up with the pins on the uprights.
