    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.

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

      The only reason I didn't check 'professional recording' in the options section is that there are multi-guitar stands designed to hold several intruments better suited.

      Have used them on a few gigs and rehearsals. I'm really pleased with the design, overall. I don't even use the 'strap secure' option, though. It's a bit of a pain and will fatigue over time, I'm sure. The Hercules design is much better for securing and release while in the stand, but then again it IS a mechanical feature that may fail over time as well. A friend has a Hamilton that breaks down more narrow and longer, but the security attachments seem to loosen easily and the weight of the instrument requires using both hands to extract it. One on the stand and one on the instrument.

      Quality-wise the Universal is somewhere in the middle of the Hercules and the Hamilton.

      They go in my 'stands bag' with my mic and speaker stands. The mic stands are all tri-pod/boom. It's an old, green Army duffle-bag. I'm keeping them in their original boxes until I can find a suitable padded 'gig bag' in which to transport them. The mic and speaker stands are pretty heavy and I don't want to risk damage to the guitar stands.

      The singular question is their durability which can only be answered in time. If I get 2-3 solid years of gigging out of them they will have served their purpose. By that time there will be other products on the market vastly superior in which I'll invest.

      The ONLY reason I gave them 4/5 stars is a lack time on the job. Love the locking mechanism for the legs. Really stabilizes the stand whether being used or transported. Again it's one of the great features, but how will it hold up over time? This all being said they still beat the carp out of those old-style 3 piece packing nightmares, don't they? Mine will never leave the house again.

        I use it for a 5 string Schechter Bass Guitar. It is pretty heavy and this stand handles it easily.

          Don't buy your dream guitar and put it on a cheap stand. I've tried them all, and I really like this one. Works great for Vs and Explorers, too. Protect that investment.

              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.

                  This is by far one of the best stands on the market. Hold the guitar securely and comes off the stand without trouble with the strap getting caught up.

                    I originally bought this because it was safe for the finish of my two Eastman archtop guitars. I was one of those 'cheap-o is just fine' guitar stands guys. Even though these are considerably more expensive they are worth every penny. They are much more sturdy and well constructed than I had expected. And, since I have 2 cats, the absence of any 'cradle' gives one less opportuntity for my little mongoloids to tip over my not-so-cheap guitars. Perhaps, most of all, they are great for travelling. They fold into one piece(2or3 pieces for the cheap-o's)and assemble easily. I love having this with me on a gig. Easy 5 stars! Come to think of it I'm gonna buy another one;)

                      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!
