I've bought three of these now, two for the church I attend and one for myself. Not only is the price right, but honestly, there are very few more expensive guitar/bass/mandolin stands that I would rather buy. Per that last sentence, I use this stand for bass, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and mandolin. I've had problems with finding a good stand that will fit my mandolin AND a bass guitar but this certainly does it due to its adjustable width. Also, the folding mechanism for these stands is sturdy and convenient. I was a little sceptical of if these stands would be robust enough to be thrown around a bit as my church tears down and sets up every week. That means these stands get thrown in a storage bin every week. If you are a traveling or local musician who needs to bring your own guitar stand, I would also recommend this stand for that application. I'm in a cover band myself, and I would use this stand in a heartbeat for that.
