Get a stand

Guitarist - - Feature -

One of the best in­vest­ments a gig­ging guitarist can make is a por­ta­ble gui­tar stand. Don’t leave your gui­tar lean­ing against an amp on stage be­cause, sooner or later, it will get knocked over and dam­aged, pos­si­bly seriously. Us­ing a stand is also more pro­fes­sional – the gui­tar will stay safe on the stand while techs go bustling about the stage – and be ready to pick up and play when you come on. Our fave is the Coop­er­stand CS-1 (£39.95), which sup­ports both electrics and acous­tics se­curely. It also folds down to gig­bag pocket size when not in use and, with its smart wooden fin­ish, looks great at home, too.
