Imagine a world where musicians trip over their guitars daily. That’s exactly where we’d be if it weren’t for guitar stands. Sure, there’s always the classic “prop it up on a chair” approach—followed by a cringe as the guitar invariably slides to the ground. The time-tested guitar case, too, is a reasonable resting place for when safety or travel is a must; but it doesn’t lend itself too well to the quick ups and downs required of live performance or everyday life. Guitar stands, meanwhile, keep an instrument safe and available for spontaneous strumming.
