As other reviewers have said this stand is very sturdy and packs up very well. Fits my acoustic guitar reasonably well. Padding and feet are well crafted and functional.
However, this doesn't fit my Strat or P-bass at all. the slight asymmetry of the bodies won't line up well with the cradle arms. If you align the body in the arms, they lean to the side. You can adjust the width of the arms but the top pad is anchored to one of the arms, so that becomes oddly aligned with the legs at anything other than as wide as it goes. The cradle arms are welded to the frame which (I think) is the design flaw. If they were free to rotate, they could be adjusted to hold the instrument upright with one arm wider/narrower than the other to accommodate slightly asymmetric bodies. Note... I have a Strat and Fender P-bass. These aren't exactly Gibson Explorer profiles. Does fit my acoustic, so I'll use it for that .
