A bit tricky for an asymmetric guitar
on 18 January 2014
In general, a really well-made stand with futuristic looks. The workmanship and the materials are really good. Folds into something more or less compact, too.
Now, the problem is that I am using it for a Jazz Bass, the same as the one-star reviewer, and I have to agree that there's a bit of a compatibility problem. The stand's legs are at the same level, and the JB's bridge end is asymmetrical. So you can either place it on the stand at an angle (bad, bad idea) or off-centre, which sort of works, but isn't perfect.
Furthermore, the 'antennae' that the higher part of the guitar's body leans against don't hold it that strongly anyway, and with a full-scale bass, with the neck as long as it is and the centre of gravity higher than that of a guitar, it's way too easy to knock it over.
So if you want a cool-looking foldable stand and are ready to compromise stability, or if you know for sure nobody's gonna tip your axe over, that's the best stand I've seen. But if you want functionality and stability at the expense of good looks, a bog-standard A-frame, especially with a U-bracket for the neck, is a better option.
