I use this for a mandolin and it is a stable and secure stand. The neck and body rest on the typical foam you find on many stands.
- The neck rest is also secured at the front side so your instrument won't fall out if somebody bumps into it
- Sturdy, good materials
- Neck rest tends to move (rotate) slightly to the right when tightening the screw
- The "locking bar" on the front side of the neck rest is not horizontal but slightly angled. In other words, it is not exactly level with the floor.
These cons are aesthetic. The stand is 100% functional. If you really want perfect looks, you might want to consider another stand. Otherwise this is a really good deal.
