OVERVIEW

Solid and safe support for prized guitars.

The GS-200 Genesis is a guitar stand constructed of automotive-grade materials. It features case-quality velvet pads to protect your guitar's finish. The fold-down support arms securely hold your instrument, and the legs lock open and closed for worry-free stability. Measures 32" (813mm) when set up, and 3.5" x 21" (89x533mm) when folded into a compact unit, it weights 3.1 lbs. (1.4 kg). Stand also features storage slots for your extra picks. 5-year warranty.

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
  • One-piece stand folds into a compact unit
  • Constructed of automotive-grade materials
  • Case-quality velvet pads to protect your guitar's finish
  • Fold-down arms for secure support
  • Locking legs for worry-free stability
  • Storage slots for extra picks
  • 5-year warranty

I bought an Ultimate GS-200 stand about a year ago and couldn't believe how much easier and quicker it was to set up compared to my three older-style multi-part stands. I was thrilled to get two more this week to finally replace my remaining old stands. My Alembic Spoiler bass and my two Ampeg Dan Armstrong basses fit very well on the GS-200 stands. Not only are these stands sturdier than my old ones, but they're twice as fast to set up and tear down, which is a big plus when dealing with three basses on multi-band gig scenarios that require speed and efficiency before and after the performance. I plan to donate my old stands to some young music students who may not have a guitar stand yet.

I play bass. I purchased one of these about two years ago and it worked perfectly for all of my basses. I just received a second one and the support brackets that the guitar rests on are set much wider apart than the first one I purchased. As the reviewer below said, virtually of all of my basses now slip through the brackets to the floor or come close to doing so. It appears they widened the placement of the brackets since I purchased the first one. In any event, it's now worthless for most standard size basses or electric guitars as they slip through the brackets. If they resolve this issue, everything else about this stand is great and it's the best design on the market.

Comments about Ultimate Support GS-200 Genesis Guitar Stand:

My band has used the stands in the past with no problems. I bought a new one and the base is wider and doesn't hold my electric guitars. Its fine for acoustic, but not electric. Maybe they fixed it but, I haven't been informed.
The base is wider for some reason. My electric guitars slide through.

    Comments about Ultimate Support GS-200 Genesis Guitar Stand:

    I bought this stand a couple years ago. I'm primarily a bassist but also play acoustic guitar regularly. Have used the stand extensively for both - with a variety of instruments. Generally, it's been okay, but I don't think I'd recommend it. I have run into the issue regarding the width of the bottom rests. You have to confirm that your instrument fits the stand. It might not. Unfortunately, someone recently packed the stand for me after a gig and must have folded it up without properly releasing the locking mechanism. The stand now seems to be ruined. Unfortunate that the main locking mechanism is plastic and easily damaged if forced. Other than these two issues, it's been a decent piece of hardware. If you get one, don't let anyone else touch the thing...

                I am very happy with this guitar stand. I now own three of this brand and model. I looked at other stands, but this one pops out as very well built, and it holds my various-sized guitars securely.

                I do wish Musician's Friend would put the stand on sale now and then. I waited for months and gave up waiting.

                            This is a great guitar stand. All of my guitars fit in this stand including my old Yamaha JR1 3/4 guitar! Honestly I don't know what these reviewers are on about, because it has NEVER dropped a single guitar at a gig or in practice. But it is a bit wide for my Yamaha Pacifica. I recomend this stand to anyone who wants a good, reliable stand.

                            Just got one in the mail today. This is a very sturdy guitar stand that is compact and easy to use. Based on previous review entries and my own experimentation, I can't say that I'd be totally comfortable putting an electric instrument on this stand, but since I bought this for use with an acoustic guitar, I have no issue with the stability. My only slight complaint is the neck retainer is awkward to use. It would be nicer if it was a solid part that slid out of the way instead of a floppy piece of rubber. I can't argue with the stability and security, though. Also, it would have been nice to have been provided with a case for storage in collapsed form. By the way, collapsibility is a major plus with this. No more multi-part stands to lug around, or flimsy floor stands that are easily knocked over. This product stands out (oh yes, pun intended!) Recommended.

                            Every one of my electric basses fall through to the floor. The tele and strat just barely fit, but I still don't trust it to hold them. The weight of the basses cause them to fall through. The two bottom rests are to far apart to trust my instruments on.

                            I love this stand! I own a half dozen of the MF store brand stands. While those are good for around the house and do the job the ULTIMATE is the one I use on stage. It folds up easily into a compact shape. It is safe, stable and secure. The rubber neck retainer provides peace of mind when you walk off the stage. It does not scratch my Strat, Martin, Thunderbird or Dove. I never worry about my guitars when using this stand.

                            This is a good quality stand, I like the locking mechanism and folding design. I rate it only three stars because I had to make a couple of modifications so it would work for me.The body supports are set wide apart and my small bodied Warwick Corvette would slide right through to the floor. I drilled holes two inches farther up the legs and reinstalled the supports there.The guitar sat a little too vertical for my liking and made me feel like it could fall forward. I cut a half inch off the back leg which helped.
