    I'm looking for a multiple guitar stand. Afoordable, hold 5-7, (or more). Any suggestions? Getting them out of their cases after being stored while I'm gone on the river and putting them back up all the time is getting old.........

    How do they balance in there? It looks precarious - I reckon they can topple into each other.

    If you have any wood working skills, here's some plans I found somewhere in cyber space. I've built a couple. They look nice and are easy to build.

    True could I guess if on is not careful.
    Especially odd shaped ones like T-birds and Jaguars...and "V"s

    That's cool Flatrock. I can handle that, and may use oak!
    Thanks!

    I use a Quik Lock like the one pictured. Very durable, folds down for transporting. I've used it both at home and on gigs for the last year and never had an accident. Holds ever kind of guitar.

    A lot of people like the Hercules version of the same type of stand.

    That looks sturdy Flyswatter. Lots of options, and now I'm thinking a nice wooden one would look better on the hardwood floors.....???? Maybe...

    If ya got the tools and the time, a nice wood one would be awesome especially if the need to fold or hide or "put away" the stand is not required. If ya got the room, make it a nice attractive piece of furniture--functional furniture ;)

    I just may do that E, if time permits. One day, I plan on building a large cabinet like the big boys use on tour. Something that'll hold 20 or so, have lighting inside, and be mobile. It's gotta look good, cause I want it in the living room!

    Well, I'm sure you'll have to battle it out between all the other applicants, and prove thy ability to hold liquor.... in the coffee.......

    I jumped the reservation!
    My amigo, Bill, from across the road, built a six slot permanent type wooden guitar rack/case that he keeps many guitars in. He built it in his woodworking shop behind his place and did a good job building it. He designed it to where all the instruments rest in padded locations and are a full 90° from the front with just a slight tilt to the left to allow the instruments to lean into the upper cradles for the necks. Thus giving it the least amount of width taken up by the rack/case on the floor. He said he was wanting something that could hold half a dozen guitars but not take up too much floor space in his house. He succeeded, as it looks almost furniture-like and only spans maybe four feet in width (he allowed space for full bodied acoustics in two slots otherwise it would have been a little more narrow). So home built multi stands are nice I think when well done. :thumb:
