10 reviews for Amazon Basics Guitar Folding A-Frame Stand for Acoustic and Electric Guitars Musical Instruments

  1. Ed Brickner

    I purchased one of these and liked it so much I bought another one. This is a great guitar stand for the price. It can be adjusted for different size guitars and is very sturdy. The boy thing that would make this better is a rubber latch to keep the guitar a little safer but I have not had any issues without it

  2. Brian from Boston

    I have no idea who initially invented this style of guitar stand, but this is a great price for a well made copy. The stand opens to three different positions to fit a wide variety of body sizes. The foam arms are designed to work well with body solid body electrics and acoustic guitars. This is replacing a Fender branded folding stand I’ve used for about 20 years. It’s bulkier (will not fit into a gig bag unless it has HUGE pockets) and heavier but is far more sturdy. It folds nicely into a shape that works as a handle for carrying it. I first saw one at a rehearsal space I was at and after seeing the price I ordered one immediately. HIghly recommended if looking for a compact stand for gigging.

    Really nice Stand with padding for support, sleek design, not bulky. It’s simple design is functional and looks nice.

  4. Lee T.

    I actually purchased this to stand for my electric longboard (Evolve GTR) to stand it upright for storage. It works really well.

    I bought one of these to keep my inexpensive parlor guitar at hand, and it works well, and the access increases impromptu practice sessions, my goal. Due to the mixed reviews, I looked it over with a critical eye when it arrived. Noticed it has brads, which I’m not fond of, but took another look, and the brads look sturdy and well-seated. It’s neither structural nor mechanical, and I think it will stand up fine to the intended use: to sit on the floor and hold a guitar. I jiggled it a bit to see if the guitar would drop off, and even picked it up by the base and leaned it forward, and it has to lean a bit for the guitar to fall, bearing in mind that mine is a bottom-heavy, 12-fret-to-the-body, small guitar. I’m still attentive about where in the room I position it, but so far, I’m happy with it. I also like that it’s close to the (carpeted) floor, so a fall is unlikely to be disastrous. Would I trust it with my $45K WWII D-28? No, but not a problem as I don’t have one.Yesterday I had the guitar on my bed and the stand empty, and wanted to set my bodhran down, and without thinking about it, placed it on the at-hand stand, where it sat like the stand was made for the purpose. Since I had been actively seeking options for resting places (leaving in case or under a shelf rejected on the out-of-sight-out-of-mind principle; on top of a book case rejected because cats and gravity), this seemed serendipitous. I picked up the stand, tried the tilt test, and it clung with tenacity. Foam rest at top and on legs protected the wood. I looked up options for purpose-built bodhran stands, and decided to buy another of these, since they can then be used interchangeably for either instrument, and I was already knew what I was getting. This bodhran is a 14.6 x 5.5 inches/6 (38 x 14 cm), and it looks custom-built for the purpose.In reference to the snarkilicious Q&A’s about whether this stand is cat-friendly, I noticed that my stand had tooth marks in the foam supports which hold the body of the guitar at the base. It was me or the cats, and I would remember, so I speculate that a cat or cats and the stand were getting *very* friendly at some point.

  6. Anon Rahman

    I never had other guitar stands, but I can tell the reviews on this are not fake. It’s a pretty good guitar stand, and I would give it a 4/5 or 5/5. Very satisfied with this purchase!

  7. Amazon Customer

    Adjustable open position makes this stand usable for a variety of instruments. One fo my acoustic and one for my electric guitars. Folds up to about a 10”x10” square and packs nicely into my accessories bag. Highly recommend.

  8. James Fields

    It does exactly as advertised. Stands there holding a guitar. I recommend buying one for every guitar you have. I have one.

  9. Dibren

    Compact stand. Very sturdy. I don’t know if it fits all guitar bodies as well as it fits my Telecaster. I still prefer the neck support on a stand but for travel etc. this is perfect. The top rest is right on the neck plate on a Telecaster may be on the body on other shaped guitars. Still a really good product.

  10. garb

    Very impressive stand. Accommodates my simple 6-string Ibanez acoustic guitar. Protective foam on the cradle part of the stand keeps scratches from happening. Not sure about the longevity, but at the price paid replacing the stand would not be break the budget.UPDATE: So impressed with the first one, I gladly bought a second. They are really well made.
