Why spend money on a stand when you can build one for practically next to nothing?
Step 1: Get a Plan and Cut It Out!
Do you want it to be portable?
Do you want it to fold out?
Do you want the neck to be supported?
I chose to have a portable collapsible stand that supports the body.
Cut one of the sides out and trace it out on the leftover piece of plywood to make the second upright.
Step 2: Router the Edges
Step 3: Assembly
also, you might want to screw a little chain such as the ones found in bathrooms to hold the drain plug to prevent the stand from spreading apart when the guitar is resting on it.
Step 4: Finishing.
My stand will soon get a high gloss candy red finish, but for now it has an unique bare plywood finish.
Let your imagination run wild, try different concepts!
