    Yeah and in Ontario, too. You'd think scarcity would engender more respect. :dunno:

    That doesn't even look real. It looks like the guitar was shopped into the picture. Probably just light playing tricks, but it looks like it's floating.

    Where's Tony M?
    He doesn't even allow guitars on a stand, he'd hate this.

    At least turn the guitar around if you have to be foolish enough to lean it on a wall.

    It's always bugged me that there's so many guitarists who fork over huge amounts of money for guitars and amps but can't make the effort to get a guitar stand. When I see a guitarist who just leans his guitar against an amp (and I've seen plenty) I cringe so hard it hurts. Never lean a guitar against anything!

    I leaned mine against my amp once. Intending to be just long enough to get a stand. You got it. Slipped sideways and hit the floor.Scared the crap outa me. Did not damage anything other than to tick me off royally.

    I have mine on hangers (Hercules brand) because they need to be out of reach of my kids. But I've become more paranoid about it of late. Starting to just put them back in their cases.

    That said, you can visit somewhere like Dave's and see six-figure guitars hanging indefinitely in his museum. Can't do them any harm really I suppose and anything's better than leaning it against a wall.

    If nothing else, when it's done on stage it looks very unprofessional. A guitar on a stand looks like you care about what you're doing.

    I smell a market for a product. Guitar stands are a pain in the bum, and are not a great deal more secure than leaning against the amp on a stage with people tromping around. But how about something with a couple of forks clamped to the top edge of the amp. The guitar could rest in there like in a stand, and it would be going nowhere. Nobody is about to kick your amp over.

    I've even built a prototype - expect it in the shops for Christmas.

    Guitar stands?

    Watch right to the end (or skip to the last thirty seconds if you don't want to sit through ten minutes of genius) and see what happens...

    That was bizarre. Throw down the 335 and pick up the melon. Don't recall seeing that chapter in Bert Weedon's Play in a Day.

    By the way, I think there was a guitar bracket that secured to a combo's handle out a few years ago.

    Damn. Oh well, back to my latest invention. I think I may call it a wheel.

    It really does look photoshopped, but as Wav said, there is a blade of grass in front of it. Actually, I think it's because he used flash on his camera, making the guitar look unnaturally well lit and giving a second shadow. Whoever this guy is, he sure doesn't deserve to own a guitar of that magnitude.

    I've leaned my Tele copy against the amp - face-in - a few times, but it's a Tele, it can be used as a bat it's so tough. See Keith Richards.

    Yup, seen them, and obviously they didn't become a must-have item.

    long ago, and oh so far away...
    I bought a guitar holder that would insert into the second channel of a guitar amp.
    That would hold my bass, because I was playing through a Traynor 1-15 tube amp
    that had two inputs on the front panel.

    Recently, I held a garage sale, but was absent for most of it... I told my stepdaughter
    that she could keep whatever she took in if she would sit there and sell my stuff.
    I do love my Stepdaughter, and wanted to be rid of old and forgotten things.

    [​IMG]
    so here's a cool thing she found when she opened one of the guitar
    cases I authorized her to sell. She sold the case for $20 but didn't let the
    buyer take this thing, saying that it was mine and he could buy the case but
    not the guitar holder. Clever girl, she really didn't even know WTF it was.
    *grins THIS ACTUALLY WORKS! ...as long as you own a front loading amp.

    I own four amps right now, (no, six) and all of them are top loading.
    Which is why this guitar holder was languishing in an old and unused guitar
    case. Cain't use it fer nuthin' unless ah drills a hole in th' wall and inserts a
    switchcraft guitar jack... Then ah kin insert this gitt-tar holder an lean mah
    SG against th' wall agin.

    Stands, i dont really trust them, so easy for stuff to fall over..I started keeping them in cases or in the rack i bought. Last night I was playing my acoustic and had to set it down on a stand i had there for that purpose. I just began to turn away and the guitar began falling off the stand neck first, i grabbed it jut in time. So now i like them even less :)
