Jtv Guitar Stand?


Best Answer Rewolf48 , 21 October 2013 - 03:51 AM

I had problems with a "normal" guitar stand as the VDI cable was at exactly where the supports was, so the guitar was at a silly angle and I didn't like the idea that the socket was taking the weight of the guitar.

 

I now have one of these http://www.herculess...ars/GS414B.html which supports the guitar from the head just like those hung on a wall  - it is much more stable that it looks because for some reason the photo shows it extended for a bass or something when in practice it only needs extending up one step.  Our Bass player has one of the double headed ones (GS422B).

Just got my very first JTV and was curious, what model of guitar stand works best for when the DVI cable is connected?

Any stand that will hold a guitar with a 1/4 inch plug will work. Or has so far with mine.

The jack plate's edge will sit on the side of one of the bottom bars of a basic stand.. It'll be fine.

Some stands may interfere with the place where the VDI or even Jack connects! I have an old stand like this one http://images.guitar...001_black_R.jpg and I can't place the guitar with the cable connected, so what I do is just close it to the previous pin marker and voilá!

The Hercules Stand is the solution. I would suggest one of the models that have the back brace for your guitar. This feature provides for the ability to also support non-traditional body types like (e.g. a flying V).

I haven using the Hercules tri-stand version for about 8 years, and it has really been good to use. I used to take 3 guitars Variax 300, LP, and Ovation A/E and needed all 3, but now I take my 2 JTV's - 59 & 69S, but still use the tri stand - just used to it.... Folds up nice in my gear bag, doesn't take as much floor space as 2 separate stands, etc. Nice & stable. The other guitarist in the band has a Hercules bi-stand, but it takes up about the same space as my tri.
