A guitar that lives outside its case is a guitar that gets played. All 4 of my immediate family members play, and so I set out to design a stand that would compliment the curves of a guitar while holding it safely for the moment you walk by and want to play. Built with tool-free, knock-down hardware this stand can be disassembled for easy storage and shipping. The guitar is securely supported by soft rubber tubing. Getting the dimensions to look pleasing on this one was a real challenge and there were probably 10 prototypes before settling on the final design. Tung oil finish.
