Ultimate Support

Ultimate Supports GS-100 guitar stand is one of the most compact tube-style stands on the market (folds to just 22" x 3-1/5"). Securely holds any size guitar or bass, hanging it by the headstock. Well-cushioned with inert padding so no chemical emissions will mar your finish, and has no protruding pieces to hang up your guitar strap or cable. Tripod base is extremely stable, even on uneven surfaces. Handy pick storage slots on the top of the yoke.

    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.
    Hey, you get what you pay for, enough said.

    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.

      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.

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

                  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!

                      I now have three of these. Guess that would sum up my confidence in them. Like anything else, if you don't operate them correctly you can break them as other reviewers seemed to have accomplished.
