    Hercules Guitar stands Beware!!!!

    Come on my house is full of things made from plastic that have lasted over 20 years. I personally have never had a plastic item disintegrate like this; melt into a gooey substance. I called the company and the rep said they were aware of this "problem" and stated it had to do with a chemical...

    Hercules Guitar stands Beware!!!!

    I am far from Lazy and I do save most of my receipts! The reason I don't save receipts for guitar stands as what could possibly go wrong other than user abuse? Especially for an item that cost less than $50? Who would guess that there would be a wide spread manufacturing defect that could...

    Hercules Guitar stands Beware!!!!

    I am sure I could bring the stands to my local guitar center where i bought them over 5 years ago and they would help me out, to be honest I wouldn't want to put them through the hassle of trying to figure out from hundreds of purchases I made, which ones contain the stands. It just not worth...

    Hercules Guitar stands Beware!!!!

    I bought mine from guitar center and called them and they told me their receipts could only be searched for the last 3 years. I should have bought them from sweetwater. It really shouldn't matter as I am willing to send them the actual defective stands. You either "stand" behind your stand or not :)

This is a know defect that these...

    Best B3, Rhodes, Synth, Piano in One Keyboard

    I think the overall best sounding by far is the Kurzweil. I have tried the nord and kronos. they both have usable sounds however, there is something thin to me in the sound of those boards. The Kurzweil to me has a quote "organic sound" whatever that means. I keep wanting to buy a Nord however...

    my new cocobolo OM santa cruz vs my collings OM mahogany 1a?

    So I ended up buying an om santa cruz with Cocobolo back and sides and Italian spruce top. So far I am still liking my collings om 1a better? To me its clearer more bell like where the Santa Cruz has more going on ( i am guessing more overtones) this leads to more of a "fuzzy " sound to my...
