Affordable stand for electric guitars
There are different ways to store your instruments: While some people swear by keeping them in a case or a gig bag, others prefer unrestricted access to the instrument. There are two options for this: Wall hangers and stands. Guitar stands like the Millenium GS2001 for electric guitars and basses are more convenient than wall hangers because they are portable and can also be placed anywhere in the room. They can also be used in the rehearsal room or on stage. Being compact and easily foldable comes in handy, especially when the stand has to be taken along on a trip.
Foldable and safe
The Millenium G2001 electric guitar stand is made of metal and designed to be durable and foldable, while staying firmly in position when unfolded. The feet are made of non-slip rubber, as is the spot against which the guitar is propped up. This prevents both the stand and the guitar from slipping. The supporting surfaces for the guitar are made of dense foam. One of the support arms is bent to provide extra stability if the guitar or bass gets accidentally knocked, while the other arm is straight to avoid getting caught on the potentiometers.
Suitable for most designs
Whether you play single-cut, double-cut, semi-acoustic, ST-style, TE-style, or bass: The GS-2001 E will fit the bill. This makes the stand attractive for most guitarists who prefer to invest their money in the instrument rather than in overly expensive accessories. The guitars are nevertheless well protected thanks to the soft foam padding. There is one particular thing you have to watch out for: Guitars with nitrocellulose lacquer, such as US-made Gibson guitars, should not be placed in this stand for long periods of time, as nitrocellulose lacquer reacts to the foam and deteriorates under certain circumstances. This should not cause any problems for the duration of a performance, but storage is only recommended for guitars with other common lacquers. Users are instead advised to opt for stands with support surfaces that are either white or made from cork.
Millenium is one of Thomann’s in-house brands and has been an integral part of the store’s range since 1995. More than 800 products – from drums and percussion through to accessories such as microphone stands, racks, and recording workstations – bear the Millenium label. These products are made by renowned companies who also manufacture products for other well-known brands. Since they are imported directly from the factory without any further distributors or sales companies, they can be sold at particularly attractive prices. Incidentally, one in every four Thomann customers has already purchased at least one Millenium product.
A safe pitch
With this stand, you don't have to worry about lack of support for the neck. On the contrary: Due to the low height, there is hardly any leverage to make the stand tip over. The instrument is held securely in place by the foam-padded arms, and the rubber surface against which the body rests prevents the guitar or bass from pivoting. The angle at which the instrument stands prevents it from tipping forwards, and the supporting surface prevents it from tipping backwards. The instrument thus rests securely and can be easily removed by lifting it upwards. The four rubber feet of the stand also provide a firm hold, which ensures that the stand is not moved unintentionally. The guitar featured in this image is a typical single cut, the Harley Benton SC-Custom Plus. Technically, it's possible to leave a cable or a wireless system plugged into a guitar of this design.
ST and TE-style
The Millenium GS2001 electric guitar stand is also well suited to ST and TE-style guitars. A Harley Benton TE-52 is resting securely in the stand shown in this picture. Even the cable can stay plugged in if the guitar is placed on the stand with the necessary care.
Modern ST styles
Even electric guitars with deep cutaways and rounded neck joint surfaces will rest securely on the Millenium GS2001 E. Depending on the position of the output jack, you may have to be careful with the cable. Here, an Ibanez from the RG series can be seen placed on the stand. Tremolo-equipped guitars will also fit without getting stuck on the support arms of the stand.
