    Guys
    Any suggestions on a guitar stand for the floor? I'm reluctant to hang my guitars (so a cradle model of sorts would do) and Amazon doesn't appear to have many good ones.
    Thanks for any help.
    Chris

    Are you looking for a stand that can hold multiple guitars, or single stands?

    I recently grabbed two of these when they were on sale (PRS Floating Guitar Stand – PRS Guitars West Street East Accessory Store) and they are great. Very sturdy, and the guitars look great on them.

    If you're looking for a multi-stand, I've heard good things about a few brands:

    Actually, just a single guitar.
    The one you suggested look good but I'm reluctant to hang my guitar(s).
    But thanks, anyway. Appreciate it.

    If you want a real nice quality stand buy one of these - I have one and it’s magnificent.

    Which model and finish do you have?
    I like the concept on how it cradles the guitar rather than "holding" it.
    I am taking delivery on a French rub/varnish finished guitar.
    As I have seen, with a guitar finish like this, contact points on a guitar stand could create wear points/areas.

    Nice to have a quality stand like these. The cost is minor if you have a high end premium guitar to hold

    That PRS stand looks awesome, and love the wooden stand from South Mountain, as well. If I only had ONE guitar, would be a consideration.

    As a woodworker, I've been threatening to build a similar guitar stand for quite awhile. Will have to think about it some more.

    I have 5 guitars and 1 uke hanging on the wall using String Swing hooks. I like them up off the floor, cause the dogs like to sniff them and get slobber on the tops. (Yuck) I do have 3 or 4 on stands on the floor, as I don't have enough free wall space in that room, which are a couple of different budget models.

    The sturdiest are the Hercules stands--$30-50 at GC or online. I also have some minimalist Fender stands that don't extend up the neck - fine if you don't have dogs or kids walking around on a routine basis.

    I really like the PRS stands. They are very sturdy, and I don't have any fear that I'm putting undo strain on a guitar when they are there.

    I have the walnut / maple model 2 . In fact, I have a second one on order due in a few weeks. These are high quality solid stands with beautiful felt at all contact points, and a nice swing latch with magnetic contacts.

    The fit and finish is like a piece of fine furniture.

    I've used On-Stage A-frame stands for a long time and I really like them. They're soft foam on the contact points and hold the guitar firmly.

    Lots of beautiful stands here! If you don't want to spend a lot of money and want one that doesn't require "hanging", you might try one of these.

    Stagg makes a similar one. I bought a couple a few years ago on Amazon. Not the fanciest wooden stands but they do work well. (Unfortunately, temporarily out of stock on Amazon right now, but you might find elsewhere) https://www.amazon.com/Stagg-SG-AW10...ct_top?ie=UTF8

    (Says there for classical guitars but I use them on everything from archtops to Teles)

    Winter: Thanks. Pretty much what I'm after. I'll buzz them tomorrow. Thanks to the others, too, that offered their suggestions.

    I have a couple of these. Not beautiful by any means but space saving and haven’t marred any finishes for me.

    Ha! Agree. But I have a classical with a gorgeous French polish finish and my old rack' with rubber padding didn't do it any favors. I found out the hard way.
    Come to think of it, I'll put it in the bedroom and see if my wife gets any ideas.

    I made a bunch of these out of shop scraps a few years back to use around the house, but sold them off recently and replaced them with Herculeses (Herculi?) when my daughter reached the perilous stage of toddlerdom:

    You might also get in touch with Josh at Atlas Stands... he used to post here, but I haven't seen him around in a while. I think he focuses on amp stands, but has made some nice guitar stands as well.

    I use the guitar stands from OneFortyThree. Great small business to deal with. Made in Nevada. Minimalist, mid-century design (which appeals to me). Very sturdy - never been knocked over despite the presence of toddlers and a dog. They'll line the portion of the wood which comes in contact with the guitar with suede, felt, or any other material upon request.

    I believe you have some higher end beauties. IMHO These stands are treating them the respect they deserve.

    Cool minimalist design. The wood paddle curve high enough to cradle the guitar. But being the nervous person I am I would still want a design that cradles the neck. Ideally both the high lower bout cradle and a cradle for the neck, head.

    I like the design. But a low setting amp stand design in a house with cats could be a problem.

    Love the stand -- but that Strat blue is amazing!

    Be cautious with Hercules. I've heard numerous stories of the padding on them causing nitro burn on Gibsons.
