Our GS8100 Hang-It ProGrip Guitar Stand delivers enhanced guitar security alongside convenient one-handed operation. As a guitar is placed in the yoke, the yoke closes itself around the neck to prevent the guitar from being bumped off the stand and the yoke automatically opens when the guitar is lifted. Padding on the yoke and leg bumpers protects the guitar's finish. The height-adjustable guitar hanger and stabilizing bumpers accommodate any traditionally shaped guitar including acoustic, electric, and bass. The braced tripod base provides stability and balance for dependable instrument support. For efficient transportation and storage, the base and yoke fold down.
