I finally received my stand yesterday.
It is nothing to write home about.
It will walk on you making stability a issue.
I think this could be over come by putting a wedge in by one of the hinges.
There is no way i would take this out of the house to use and using it in the house it would be used for guitars that are not handled much.
Fender makes the stand pictured a couple posts above which is inexpensive,more compact ,and much sturdier than the jackknife. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender/...601053082-sku^[email protected]^PLA
They are attractive and work well for my needs. I had too many guitars and too few stands to have them out and about. Now I have them all at hand. I just lean them up on the stand in the corner and they're good to go.
I can see how you wouldn't want them "in the round," too easy to accidentally knock over. You probably also don't want to use them if you have small children. I see no particular impediment to using them on stage, unless you have a very active stage show; their size, weight, and ability to fold actually make them ideal for travel.
Tldr; Great to stick in a corner or closet, not great around pets or small kids. Good buy for $12.99 or less.
I've had their A frame for electric for a long time.
Compact, light, sturdy enough, great for grab and go.
With my HSS, I never felt it was too tippy, or unstable.
Received an Ultimate hanging stand as a gift, so use that live presently.
Never tried these wood ones though. However at around ten bucks each...
