  • Top 10 Best Guitar Stands in the UK 2021
    Top 10 Best Guitar Stands in the UK 2021
    We think it would be fair to say that guitarists spend many an hour fawning over the guitars they want to buy. We meticulously research new releases and discuss them with our friends until we’re blue in the face, but something we don’t consider quite as much is where we’re going to store our precious axe once we get hold of it!  Despite being overlooked, guitar stands and hangers are a crucial purchase for every player, from the studio to the stage. Without these, we’re susceptible to knocks, scratches, dings, and gravity, all of which will not only devalue your instrument but may even break it. To avoid any damage, check out this article - we’ll cover all of the guitar stand basics before showing you some of our favourite ones to buy at Amazon, eBay, and Gear4music.

To help you find the perfect tools to manage this system, we’ve put together a simple guide and recommendation list of soldered, solderless and low-profile cable kits from trusty brands like Boss, Fender and Planet Waves.
