I ve got two of these and they re fantastic. I bought a new guitar recently and I was very worried when I noticed that the nitro-cellulose finish was very delicate and that it often reacted with materials found on guitar stands. After a lot of reading and research I settled on the Genesis stand because the manufacturer was explicit about the padding materials used.
The stand folds up into a very small package and it s one-piece so there are no parts to lose if you travel with it. I ve used them for guitars and basses of all sizes with only some minor problems (see below). The stand is tilted back and the legs spread wide and it feels very, stable.
There s a little strap that you can use to secure the part that holds the neck and some notches to store pickups.
The only problem I ve encountered is that the spread of the bottom arms makes it awkward to use for some guitars that don t have symmetrical bodies. For example.. some basses, etc.
