Have to say I wasn't expecting much for 13 bucks, but this guitar stand is much heavier duty than it looks. The push button lock works perfect, the guitar fits perfect, and everything is padded well.

Nothing bad to say about it. Excellent

Great, inexpensive option for getting your kid's cello off the floor. Included some pics to show a 3/4 size cello sitting pretty -- and no longer on the carpet! I believe it would also work for a 4/4, since the bottom support still has a bit of room for "expansion". Due to the foam pad which resides on the inside of the back support, the

As other reviewers have said this stand is very sturdy and packs up very well. Fits my acoustic guitar reasonably well. Padding and feet are well crafted and functional.

However, this doesn't fit my Strat or P-bass at all. the slight asymmetry of the bodies won't line up well with the cradle arms. If you align the body in

I purchased two of these to hang guitars in my music room. These are well made and certainly do the job okay. However, I completely did NOT trust the two skimpy screws they provided to hang this unit. They are basically drywall screws, but these have a rather skinny diameter. I was not about to trust my vintage P-Bass to a skinny screw

I've used dozens of these over the last 30 years. I've hung everything from mandolins to dreadnoughts and Les pauls and strats and basses and ukes and even guitar hero guitars, works beautifully every time. Plus, they're gorgeous hunks of wood. i would never buy or recommend anything other than this specific guitar hanger. the screws

These are good hangers and String Swing is well known as a good maker of them

I don't like the yoke on these personally because of the deep curve. It causes the screw-mechanisms on the back of my locking tuners to get caught on the back curve of the yoke. The results are either losing tune because it unscrews your tuner lock,

Not what they used to be. I own 4 string swings that I purchased 10-15 years ago. The big black spacer on mine is made of METAL, not cheap plastic. I'd rather pay $20 for a well built one than $12.99 for this piece of junk.

String Swing, like many American companies - used their established reputation to screw over new

This Guitar Wall Mount Hook worked perfectly for my son's acoustic guitar. It was the easiest things to mount on drywall. No drilling necessary. I used self-anchoring black screws, (not the ones provided), just to make sure the hook will hold the weight of the guitar plus my son's constant hanging and removal of his guitar. I know he

It does exactly what it says it does and it does it well. They include a pic case and 3 pics to go with it. This sets them apart from other sellers in my opinion... why not take the extras. They do send wall anchors in case you want to place it somewhere without a stud but I wouldn't advise this as the constant use of pulling the guitar

I know many will advise against using this type of hanger with drywall anchors, but in my case, my walls are made of two sheets of 5/8" drywall for sound isolation. Stud finders work very poorly, and I'd need at least 3" screws to even reach the studs. Instead I used Toggler drywall anchors; they are rated for 178lbs shear

I made a 8 guitar hanging rack. Lined a 4x4 with these little guys and offset them from the board at about 35 degrees to give that nice angled look of them all in a row.

I have other Hercules stands and appreciate the secure hold that they provide. However I was rather disappointed with this wall mount kit. It only comes with anchors for mounting if on brick, and includes a note that if you want to mount it on drywall to go to your local hardware store and ask for help. This is unacceptable for the

Pleased with the quality of construction. Fairly rugged. Very nice how the two locking tabs rock into place automatically when inserting the neck into the holder. Would have given it five stars if they had included better mounting hardware. The two #7 screws are 1.75 inches long. After inserting them into the wooden block and half inch

Firstly, I'd like to say these are great guitar wall hangers with some minor tweaks. The guitars I was hanging with these include: 2 Gibson Les Paul Standards, a limited edition 1952 Fender Strat reissue, and an ESP Eclipse II so I was very cautious in hanging up my guitars due to their value.

No matter what you do Amazon is going to send you the "Plus" model of this product (GSP38WBPLUS). I ordered from several different sellers, with fulfillment handled by Amazon, and each time I received the wrong model. It seems like the standard version (GSP38WB) has effectively been replaced by the Plus model. Local guitar stores only

I have a ton of the old models, and they work great. My only gripe is they are a little shallow for necks with a locking nut. These new models seem to be about 1/2" deeper, which is massive improvement, IMHO. (I didn't see that listed in the specs??)

TIPS:

Buy from legit seller. If they send old model, return, get

This is safe, secure, and exactly what you'd want from a guitar hanger. If you're here, you already know how these work from having seen them in virtually every guitar store: place the guitar headstock on the forks, and the plastic guards pivot into place to prevent any accidental slips; lift up the guitar, the forks pivot out of the

With small kids in the house, my biggest concern with standard guitar stands is that they'll knock the guitar out of the stand. This stand holds the guitar securely by the headstock such that I know they're not going to knock it over sideways with their strumming, and the feet are positioned such that it would be difficult to accidentally

I have an older model of this that I use on the road and it has stood up to the test of time and my rough use so I bought this as an addition to my practice area...I was tired of leaning my guitar on whatever I had near me for break time.

The Hercules stands are the best guitar stands I've used. They are very solid and with the locking yoke you don't have to worry about your guitar getting knocked out of the stand. This one seems even sturdier than my others and is a bit different design, so I don't know if they've upgraded or if I just ordered a different model.

I’ve seen some reviews that these aren’t as good or strong as the expensive brand hooks. You know the brand... I have those too, have been a guitarist for 30 years, and have a fairly large collection of guitars. So maybe my input will help.
First, the price point on these is great!
Second, don’t use the cheap anchors that

These hangers are made well and are the perfect width for any guitar neck. The protrusion length out from the wall will leave plenty of room for any guitar. They use rubber on the two prongs to hold your guitar. And that means no scratches. The company gives us some pics and a little case to house them in, which is a nice touch. The only

After multiple close calls with 5 guitars on 5 crappy stands (and almost knocking them over like dominoes), I called it quits and purchased this after glowing reviews from a co-worker. Truly an excellent stand. The padding is sufficient, the adjustability is great, it's lightweight and sufficiently sturdy. Will easily hold 7-9 Electric

This rack is well built! Very study. Very adjustable, meeting my needs and expectations. You can set this up to load your axes in at a right angle, but I set it up in such a way that my guitars are at an angle; showing them off a bit more.

Most of my guitars were on wall hangers...taking up wall space. I love seeing them

My husband really likes this stand for his guitars - it's fun to have them all side-by-side for display and easy access. The folding feature is great, too! The number of guitars you could fit on it depends entirely on the type of guitar and how close you want the guitars to be to each other. We use it for 5 right now, but it could easily

How many guitars does one person need when you can only play one at a time? The answer is one more than you already own.
I love owning and playing both acoustic and electric guitar. Such an amazing pastime and stress relief. Its also as relief to know that I can trust my wall mound with my precious guitars both acoustic and electric.

I love the quality of String Swing holders, and this isn't my first. However, the shape of this one was not great for my La Patrie nylon string guitar. The U arms were too narrow to fit the head stock!

I had to bend the two sides apart slightly to make it work, so it looks somewhat stable, but not exactly giving me a comfy

They turned out just as the rest of the commenters said. I made sure to be careful when tightening them as to not crack the plastic. I use wall anchors all the time so I didn't think I needed to tie it into a stud, even for my son's cheap electric that feels like it ways 20 pounds. It's up there hanging right now and appears to be

I have posted pictures to show how nice they look when finished. The holders themselves are great and they swivel in order to fit any guitar head/neck. They also have a soft rubber to protect the contact point with the guitar. The screws are also solid if running it straight into a stud. The reason I can only give 4 stars is the drywall

Man these mounts seem flimsy as all get out. They aren't though, they seem to be holding the acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and electric bass that I hung on them. I'll admit I held my breath for the first hour after I hung them, but it's been a few weeks now and not so much as a wobble has come from the wall.

These are amazing hangers. They work well and are easy to install. Not sure what else I can include to encourage you to hit that 'Helpful' button but if you would that would be awesome.

These are not what I expected. They certainly hold the guitars securely and I like that they’re made of real hardwood but minus two stars for the poor sanding and lacquer job on them.

Go to Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace, or my personal favorite, True Value, and splurge the extra $3.99 for some decent sturdy drywall anchors (not these cheap crappy ones), a proper matching size drillbit (sometimes you can buy them in singles), and throw these bad boys up.

For the price I can't really complain too much, but these would be better hangers if the block that attaches to the wall were either wood, or solid plastic. As it is, it's hollow plastic. and doesn't strike me as the most durable material for holding much weight. I can use these for ukes, mandolins, charangos, and the like, but I really

I am not a musician but I married to one! At home, he has three guitars and we used to put them in their bags, on the floor leaning against the wall.

These guitar hangers are well made and look great. They are made here in the USA which is a huge plus. They are truly made well and are quite sturdy. They come with drywall anchors so if you need to hang them where there is no stud , you should be just fine. I hung two bass guitars and one guitar, and I did need to use the drywall anchors

Worked perfect for what I needed it for. I needed something to keep my guitars out of reach of my toddlers.

I bought these instead of the String Swing, which I already own several of, simply because of the price point. These are obviously a knock off version. Not quite identical, but close enough that they don't look out of place hanging side by side on the wall. The String Swing is definitely higher quality, but it's not a wide margin.
