I made this guitar stand in honor of my granddaughter who becomes a teenager in a few days. (FINALLY, in her opinion!) Of all my grandchildren, this child seems the most passionate about learning to play the guitar, so I am doing all I can to encourage her.

The stand is made from walnut and cherry and has a hot water-bent base (a), which includes a hole for the guitar strap button. The pictures are self-explanatory I think. The neck bracket is height-adjustable about 4-12” to accommodate varying sizes of instruments. The neck bracket is held by two 5/16” SS hex-head bolts with the heads thinned down to about 3/32” thick for appearance, and with brass thumb nuts.

This took more time than I expected, but having another project going at the same time, I don’t know exactly how much time it actually took.

I hope she likes it!

As Paul posted a very nice stand, now about something else if you please, I am curious as to what sort of guitar you have sitting in the stand?

This is a nice design for an adjustable guitar stand. You did a beautiful job on it.

Thanks -

Robert, the guitar is a resonator guitar I built a while ago:
