To call it just a "guitar stand" would be unfair to the design and utility of this great new product. The GBU-300 Universal Guitar Stand ($65.95 MSRP) is universal because both the base's width and the height of the head stock cradle are fully adjustable. That means the GBU-300 will support and protect any instrument from all acoustics- great and small, electric guitars, baritones, mandolins, even large six-string electric bass guitars. Like the Goby Labs well-designed microphone stands, the GBU-300 Universal Guitar Stand features all-black, powder-coated die-cast metal components and very few non-metal parts.
With this transforming guitar stand, you can lock in a wide stance for the tripod legs to insure maximum stability and know the body supports' molded rubber covering won't scratch instrument bodies and necks. These rubberized supports are large loops that become carrying handles when the stand is collapsed and readied for travel.
The GBU-300 Universal Guitar Stand has a lock-open/spring-closed mechanism that provides instant access when switching guitars during live stage performances. The ratchet mechanism locks the clasp open and out of the way for immediate access or lock it down for full security during storage.
Another winning design, the Goby Labs GBU-300 Universal Guitar Stand sells for $65.95 MSRP and is exclusively distributed by Hosa Technology, Inc. Check out http://gobylabs.com.
