Three Things to Consider Before Buying a Guitar Stand

If you care about the condition and longevity of your guitar, invest in a stand that will keep it clear of accidents.

Guitars mostly won’t stand up by themselves. Whether you’re talking about an acoustic, electric, or bass—you can’t just set the guitar down on the floor without risking disaster. They might store OK in a case or gig bag but then you can’t just pick them up and play, which is sort of the point, right? While most guitar stands make access easy, choose your next stand based on its adjustability, stability, and convenience, and whether you’re using two or more guitars.

Adjustability

Stability

Sometimes it’s more convenient, as well as space-saving, to display multiple guitars on a single stand instead of carrying a separate stand for each.
