Whether you’re looking for an electric guitar stand or guitar brackets to keep your instrument safe/display it for the world to see, we’ve got you covered. There are plenty of good reasons why you should consider buying an electric guitar stand. Not only do they look aesthetically pleasing, but they also keep it out of harm’s way. Read on to find out more.
You’ll have that honeymoon period when you finally get your guitar when you just can’t seem to get your hands off of it. Since most guitar players will want their instruments nearby, chances are they aren’t going to be packed away in gig bags or guitar cases.
Most people will generally have their guitars laying on different beds, couches, or leaning against objects in the room and this can lead to various problems or even damage your guitar. There is a solution for this. We recommend using a guitar stand or using our guitar brackets. Here are a few reasons why.
Preventing Neck Deformations
We understand that after a session it’s appealing just to lean your guitar against the wall. Don’t do this. Something that happens is the neck of your guitar will start deforming which impacts the strings. In this situation, the neck of the guitar has to counter the force of the strings but also the weight of the guitar. That is often too much.
Having a guitar stand will allow you to prevent this issue altogether. When you put a guitar on a stand, the main point of contact between the stand is at the top of the body where the neck plate usually is. Meaning, there is no negative impact on the neck.
Display Your Instruments The Right Way
Be proud of your guitar(s). If you have a great collection of guitars that you want to showcase, stands and brackets will help bring more attention to your centrepieces. Regardless if you’re an active musician or want to keep a piece of your history/memories intact, it’s always a good idea to have an electric guitar stand.
Access Your Guitars Easier
If you are a performing artist and you use more than one guitar during your performance, you will probably want to have some way of storing those guitars and still have quick access to the instruments. You don’t want to be unpacking different guitars from their cases or gig bags between songs. Having a guitar stand on stage is both a safe and practical way of storing guitars during a performance.
Protect Your Guitar
If you look at most of the guitar stand designs, you will see one thing that all of them have in common. Every guitar stand is designed in a way that prevents the guitar from tipping over by having it sit at an angle. The bottom part of the stand, where you can usually find two prongs on each side, allows the guitar to sit securely.
So even if you bump the guitar accidentally as you’re passing by, it won’t fall from the stand. Depending on the type of guitar stand you go for, you can find varying levels of features. Some have locking claws that lock the guitar in and prevent it from moving. Others come with fewer complex features. Either way, using a guitar stand is much safer than not using one.
