    I am now own in possession of 4 nice electric guitars (95 Gibson Les Paul Classic, 2001 ES 135, 2005 Telecaster, 83 Fender Strat Elite) and am looking into getting a multi-guitar stand or rack, or something like that so that my guitars can be kept together in a smaller space in my studio.

    Does anyone have a recommendation as to which rack stand seems to do the best job? I checked out the Warwick Rock Stand for 5 and 7 guitars, but it doesn't seem to get very good reviews in terms of stability and craftsmanship.

    Appreciate your input...

    - Chris

    I have one of each and I´m quite happy with them. One importent thing is that the foam linning on them have never reacted with the nitro on any of my guitars - something I´ve seen plenty of racks do at shops and friends houses.
    My racks are pretty much stationary though so I can´t really tell you about road worthyness - but they look ok to me as long as you´re not going on a 12 month world tour...and if you are you should be able to pay for new ones afterwards.
    Good luck in your hunt

    Looks like a Warwick...

    P.S. I have 2 of the Warwick 7 guitar stands. They are sturdy, solid and don't react w/nitro. I think they're great!

    I like the Fender ones, very secure, look great!
    Find them used fairly resoanable.

    Or alternatively you could use their wall mounted hangers (x4) with adjustable yokes, which would hold your guitars "side - on" in a very small space.

    :AOK +1 for the Warwick 7's. I've got a couple also and they are perfect for my use. (plus it seems I buy whatever Jamie has. :eek: )

    The fender case is very nice, although a bit pricey. What about the Warwick Case/Stand that folds up like a guitar case? There's a 5 and 7 guitar version. Is it worth the extra cost?

    Slot wall. It cost me $25 a sheet but well worth it.

    It's a "Rockstand" by Ultimate- I believe.

    I went with an Ultracase, and could not be more satisfied. Very solid (the large models are HEAVY), and protects your guitars very well. Basses and acoustics fit in as well - highly recommend.

    I use the cheap and effective warwick rockstands -

    I have 4 of em at home and they are quite sturdy, the only problem I have is that I use elastic cords to keep the guitars out of Jr's hands/to stop them falling, and they cut into the foam.

    At less that 20 bucks a piece I'm not too worried about them breaking.

    Wow, that is definitely one kick ass case. I checked out their Web site and it appears that they make high quality stuff. For now it's a bit out of my price range, but I will keep them in mind if my guitar collection expands, which I hope it will!

    I have one of these, which I use for gigs. I got it off of ebay at a good price, but it is not the most sturdy piece. The sides are wobbly and the base of the guitars tend to slide. I think Gator sells a similar piece but mine is not a Gator. Mine is not branded...

    Thinking of selling it and going with a Rockstand Ultimate Folding Case Stand.

    I've seen in the ones made by Gator and they appear to be good quality, but I have only seena 3 guitar version. I wish they made a 5 or 7 guitar version. Fender makes a similar case for 7 guitars.

    I have one just like it. Works great and wasn't very expensive compared to the fender. I got it off of ebay but Roncomusic was the vendor. I like the way it sits inside. Eliminates the possibility of the slipping off the stand. Plus it has the straps to hold the guitar in.
