A short while ago I was searching amazon for a guitar stand. My guitars are mounted on the wall but when I play I like to put it down once and awhile. I found some metal and wire ones that weren’t too expensive and a few metal ones that were pretty nice but a bit more. Then I came across one made of wood. It was really nice but instead of $24.95 it was $149! Well, a couple of hours and a few pieces of scrap wood later and I duplicated it.

It’s made of hard maple with a neck ‘hook’ like I have on the wall to hold the guitar by the neck. I whittled (no pun intended) $149 down to about ten bucks. I’ll poly it next time I get the spray gun out for another item I’ve made.

In the pictures it’s holding my largest guitar, my Guild 12 string. It also easily fits my Ovation and Martin.

Nice! Any dimensions available, my Ovation Legend would love one of these.

One of the easiest thing to do, is research on eBay and then make your own.

I just took my largest guitar and made sure the stand was tall enough that it wouldn’t touch the ground. The rest is sort of ‘free hand’.
