I know what you're thinking, how much! This guitar rack is expensive but it's the best rack I've ever come across. Setting it up is a piece of cake; all you need to do is to take it out off the box, cut the plastic transit tie, unfold it by lifting the two metal uprights up until you hear a click, and that's it! There's no messing about with an assortment of fittings and you don't need a diagram; it's a brilliant design. If you need to transport it, just press down on the top of the two metal uprights, that will release the internal catches, then it folds down into a nice neat package; it's a fantastic design.

What really impressed me was how solid it was, and I mean solid, it's extremely stable. It doesn't rock from side-to-side like certain cheaper products. Another feature that's very impressive is how it grips a guitar. I have a Strat, a Tele, a PRS, a Brian May Red Special and an Ibanez AM153-DBS and this rack has no problem gripping any of them. Once you seat the guitar properly at the bottom and at the top it doesn't move; it stays perfectly upright and the neck doesn't even touch the sides. Apparently, it's made from a flexible elastomer plastic; it feels like a sticky rubber but it's a lot tougher and more ridged. This transparent version a also suitable for guitars with a nitrocellulose lacquer and there are a number of pick holders on the back, there are ten in total and each will take a number of picks.

If you're in two minds about buying one, my advice is to go for it, you won't be disappointed. Yes, it's expensive but it's top quality and well thought out. It also comes with a König & Meyer 5-year guarantee and a 10-year replacement parts service. That proves to me how much faith König & Meyer have in their products.

It's a great product and I can highly recommended it, 10/10.

I am using this stand as a convenient means to access my growing collection of guitars.

Currently it is holding 2 Stratocasters, 1 Telecaster, 1 Jazzmaster and 1 Les Paul. Each has it's own "compartment". And each guitar shape is held equally well with a steady/snug fit, This is due to the rubber-like material used for the base of the stand where the guitars sit as well as where the necks are held. I rest easy knowing my guitars will not shift or bump or fall.

It is extremely easy to use. Folding up to use or down to store. No screws, or Allen Key needed.

What appears to be black bars between the guitar compartments in the picture is in fact a sturdy but flexible rubber like material meaning you dont risk banging your precious guitars against hard steel. Only the outside frame could hurt your guitars but of course gives the stand its rigidity.

After owning, I would prefer if the translucent synthetics were black for a better/cleaner look as the translucent material has a slightly cheap look to it.

Warning: This is an electric guitar stand and the seperations are not wide enough for my Acoustic guitars. There is a product with similar name and picture (the 17515) that can also hold acoustic guitars.

Overall I am extremely happy with this stand.
