Many guitar players disregard the importance and the great benefits of a quality guitar stand when they are just starting out with the instrument – after all, it may seem like an unnecessary extra expense to invest in something like this after you have gone through the trouble of finding the guitar itself, and all the necessary extra equipment. However, a good guitar stand will help a lot by holding your guitar tightly in one place when you have to take a break between sets, or when you’re resting from playing/practicing.
You may think that you can simply lean the guitar against a wall, but this is not often the best idea – it can cause some harm to the guitar, especially if you keep doing this over a long period of time, it will cause bowing or even warping in the neck. A good guitar stand will ensure that the instrument is properly supported and won’t risk having it fall to the ground and damaging it beyond repair.
It’s even more important to make sure that your guitar is rested on a quality guitar stand when you have further “risk factors” in your home, such as little kids, pets etc. So all in all, never disregard the importance of investing in a good guitar stand when you’re getting the guitar itself, as it will go a long way towards ensuring that your guitar is preserved in good condition and that it lasts you a long time. In addition, if you find yourself with more than one instrument, you should make sure that you have a separate guitar stand for each one of those guitars in order to have a place to put all of them.
