OVERVIEW

Special leg locking system and finish-friendly guitar stand that'll do more than just support you guitar.

Ultimate Support's GS-100 unique hanging-style guitar stand securely holds your guitar by the head stock while the body rests safely against velvet-like padded legs. A safety strap at the yoke provides extra protection. The GS-100 securely and safely holds guitars of all makes and styles. The GS-100 is height adjustable so you can quickly adjust its height to accommodate nearly any acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, or bass guitar. Mix and match the GS-100 with any of your favorite guitars - it holds them all perfectly!

Friendly to your guitar's finish
Did you know that most expensive guitars use a nitrocellulose lacquer finish that requires special care? Because of the sensitivity of these finishes, our protective padding is a quality material surface that offers increased protection over standard surgical tubing, rubber, or foam found on other guitar stands (a high-quality case is recommended for long-term storage).

Leg locking system
Genesis Series guitar stands feature a unique, patented leg-locking mechanism. When setting up the stand, unlock and unfold the legs then lock in place for worry-free stability and strength. When finished with the gig, unlock the legs, fold, and lock for easy, compact portability. The ingenious leg lock eliminates what we like to call the "floppy leg syndrome" found with most all other guitar stands.

FEATURES
  • Hanging-style security yoke
  • Height-adjustable
  • Stable and portable
  • Friendly to your guitar's finish
  • Patented leg locking system

Spend a few extra bucks and, try this stand, you'll be glad you did. This could probably be the best stand that I have ever purchased.
Just received this and, I must say that I was not disappointed. I already own some Ultimate lighting stands and, have had them for over 25yrs. without any problems so I figured that this should hopefully follow suit and, it has. I really like the way it folds down into 1 unit and, sets up in a flash. Very sturdy, and well built, looks as if it will last a good long while.
It definitely has more stability and tube strength than the 3 pc. tubular stands.

These stands are attractive, fold compactly and have the appearance of being sturdy, however the locking mechanism for the legs is weak and gave out after only a few dozen set up/foldup cyccles. I definitely did not abuse it.

I noticed it was drooping a bit during a couple of gigs and so I re-locked it, then two nights ago it collapsed and my Strat fell, landing face down on the stage floor! Upon examining it I see that the internal locking mechanism is not accessible because it is riveted, therefore I can't see exactly what internal part failed. I bought three of these guitar stands for live performance, now I'm down to two. The others still seem ok, but I'm questioning if I should get rid of them after my Strat incident. In looking at the other reviews I see that many other people have had a similar problem with the locking mechanism. If this quality problem was addressed then it would rate 5 stars. However, based on the failure it is 1 star.

Don't entrust your guitar to it!

By Reesho

Comments about Ultimate Support GS-100 Genesis Single Guitar Stand:

I was very happy with this stand at first but after only a year gigging it turned out to be a flop - litterally. I treated it kindly, gently packed it up and gently set it up ei. I didn't abuse it. It was never dropped. I eventually noticed that the red locking mechanism was unlocking on it's own at the slightest pressure of any one of the two front legs. The symptom worsened until the stand no longer functioned at all. The weight of the guitar (in my case a Strat) was enough to push the legs right out from under even though they were in the locked position. The Strat landed on it's heel and I was there to catch it before it went over. I would take it apart and try to fix it myself but there are no scews - only rivets. By most appearances this stand is a very nice design but I have to say that whatever makes it up internally is garbage. Very disappointed!
Although well care for this Ulitmate Support GS-100 guitar stand
broke down after only a year of use. By most appearances this stand is a very nice design but I have to say that whatever makes it up internally is garbage. Very disappointed!
Gets an extra star for cosmetic quality. The quality of the internal workings is shameful.
I puchased this stand to own it and use it for a reasonable period of time. I didn't pay to rent it for a only a year. Just the worst value.

Comments about Ultimate Support GS-100 Genesis Single Guitar Stand:

The mechanism that tightens the height of the stand is poorly designed. I bought two of these stands and loved them for a while. Each lasted about a year before the tightening mechanism didn't hold the stand up anymore. So now I've got two great Ukulele or Mandolin stands!

Will never use one again.

By Ed Maxwell

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ultimate Support GS-100 Genesis Single Guitar Stand:

Will never use one of these again.
I don't think I've even owned this stand a year . I set it up and put it in the corner of my living room and haven't moved it since. I had my hofner bass which is very light sitting in it and the back leg gave out for absolutly no reason at all. I hadn't touched the stand or bass in days. Just happened to be in the room when it happened. I will never trust an instrument in one of these stands again.

Comments about Ultimate Support GS-100 Genesis Single Guitar Stand:

I already own this stand. Have had it for several years and have never had a problem. So when needing another stand I chose the Genesis and couldn't be more pleased. My Martin is resting on the new one right now and my Chet Atkins SST is cradled in the old one. I couldn't be more pleased.

          I have used these stands for years. Used to manage a music store where we used them. I never saw a single instrument ever hit the floor when it was in one of these stands. Can't say that about any other brand. Also never had one mar the headstock of an instrument. You can't go wrong.

            Comments about Ultimate Support GS-100 Genesis Single Guitar Stand:

            This is the most useful and portable guitar stand I've had over my 40 years of playing and 25 years of gigging. I got it originally for my Thunderbird bass. I used it for three years before it was acquired by an unknown party at a church. I'm on my second now, and I'm about to get a third and fourth for my home studio.

            Setup and teardown are quick and easy. Packing is effortless with no parts sticking out at odd angles.

            I've had none of the reliability issues of some of the other reviewers. It holds any guitar from the funny-shaped Gibbies to an old Takamine accoustic without fear or stress.

                I bought this stand for my Gibson Flying V. At first, I was very happy with the purchase. The stand is stable and decently manufactured. However, there's definitely not enough padding on the yoke. I left my guitar hanging overnight and found indention-marks on the underside of my headstock from the pressure on the yoke caused by the guitar's own weight. I've honestly never seen anything like it before, it was an extremely unexpected source of damage. The yoke has a rubber padding, but definitely could have used a layer of foam or something.

                        I like how compact they are when folded, fits in my pedal board case, and I've found them sturdy enough to trust at gigs. Seem to be well made, but probably not meant for tour torture or abusive conditions.

                                    Works well enough to hold my asymmetrical Schecter V-1 Custom - it's not as great at non-standard shapes as the more expensive Hercules, but it's a very stable and a fair bargain.

                                    If you have to have "hangs perfect every time without thinking", this will work well enough, it just may not look as pretty or be as absolutely stable as the higher-end options.

                                    But for a mid-priced stand, works very well.

                                      I have bunch of these GS-100 guitar stands. I have them in various places around the house where I practice/play and I have several that go to gigs. I have used several kinds of guitar stands over the decades. I have had a few guitars damaged due to poorly designed stands. This is a great design. It holds the guitar very safely, it adjusts for various sized instruments, is compact when folded, it's easily transported and requires a minimal amount of van or stage space.
                                      They CAN be broken if treated poorly but if handled with some care, they last a LONG time. I am still using the first one I bought way back. (It looks worn but is still quite functional.)
                                      It is a great product at a very reasonable price. There are similar stands that cost more and have some added features like locking mechanisms but this very simple and basic model delivers over 90% of the function of the more expensive models.

                                          I have used these stands for MANY years professionally. set-up, tear-down over and over again. have stood the test of countless setups. Simple design, grippy neck yoke, stable tripod base, relatively small footprint. sometimes the adjustable yoke pole tightening mechanism slips out of its hole, but pound it back in and your good to go. (this only starts happening after they get VERY used. years and years. Mine are pleasantly "sprung" but still, stable and functional. The foam on the legs though not as soft as brand new, is still in great shape.
                                          I just bought 2 more of these.
                                          Forget about those yellow ones or the CHEAP music store ones. Not worth it!
                                          Plus I have never had a guitar fall off one of them.
                                          thats something!
