Anyone who has carried stands to gigs can appreciate not having to find the various parts to assemble a stand when your trying to get your stuff ready. I've heard some say that having an upper support on a stand helps protect the neck but if you bump into any stand your axe is gonna crash. This stand presents a smaller footprint (= smaller target) It packs small & sets up & folds down very quickly.

The foam on the bottom of the stand will eventually erode, exposing metal and will cause damage to your guitar. I had it happen to my Les Paul. Just picking it up, and putting it back in on a regular basis you'll probably not notice, but when cleaning my LP, I noticed damage on the bottom of the instrument. After inspecting the FretRest stand, I noticed that the foam did indeed wear away to the point of metal being exposed and scratching my once beautiful Les Paul. I had four of these stands, and decided to buy a Hercules stand, that is made for 5 guitars to replace them, and I'm glad I did.

Be careful, and check that foam. It's overall not a bad idea, and these types of stands have been made for many years, but you get what you pay for. If you have one, either wrap the foam well with gaffers tape, replace the foam altogether with some type of plumbing foam or just put some type of old t-shirt or other soft material down there.

With regard to them falling over, of course this can happen to any stand. It's up to us to be careful when walking by, or placing a guitar back in the stand. A sturdier stand may withstand a bump, but this one will not. If you have several guitars, just bite the bullet and buy a Hercules stand.

FaNtAsTiC! Seriously.. A Great Stand!

By Garry

from Albany, NY

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

I am a novice player and just bought my first Guitar, a Fender Strat. I did some research on stands to find which one would support and protect my guitar the best. After reviwing, the ProLine FretRest seemed the best choice - and it turned out to be a GREAT choice. The guitar seems to be very sturdy while on the stand. It also folds up to to be transported easily. I read alot about certain stands damaging the guitars finish, but I did not hear that at all about this stand. I think this is an awesome stand, especially for the price.

Good stand

By Matt Jordan

from San Jose, Ca

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

I needed a stand to hold my new LP when I wasn't playing it, and I ordered this one to give it a try. Figured it was cheap, had good reviews, and I may as well go for it. And no complaints so far!

Great piece of equipment

By Oxfan

from Rochester, Pa.

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

Picked one up last night. I've always been a fan of the folding stands, I have two others that are considerably larger. This one holds any of my basses perfectly and securely. I have a Precision, a Jazz and an MB5. The Jazz can be a problem because of the shape, this stand holds it perfectly. At the bargain price, I may have to replace the other two.

An unexpected but perfect use for it: my Mac monitor!

By Lauren

from Plano, TX

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

The molded plastic stand for my (very expensive) Mac monitor broke recently and I thought I would have replace a perfectly good monitor just because I couldn't get it to stand up. Fortunately, I checked a blog where another frustrated Mac monitor owner had used this stand as a fix for his monitor. What a genius! This BRILLIANT solution works even better than the original stand! We're ordering a supply of them for our office and, honestly, you guys have a whole unexplored market niche waiting out there!

Jazz Bass + Fretrest = Not Good

By David S.

from Little Rock, Arkansas

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

Purchased the FretRest at local Guitar Center last week. My New Mexi Jazz Bass didn't sit very well in it at the house, but almost fell over twice on a Telecaster on a break at a gig. I will be returning it this week. I'm sure it would work better with non-offset body guitars/basses.

Remember it's for *electric* guitars

By Peter Connolly

from Layton, Utah

Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

This is a great little stand for electric guitars and basses. Nicely padded, very light, and folds up in to almost nothing. Note that there are two versions of this stand; one for acoustic guitars (FS1010A), and one for electric. The difference is the length of the folding arms at the front of the unit; the acoustic version has longer arms to get over the thickness of the body. We have several Fretrest HT1010 stands, which are great for in-studio use, but too bulky for outside gigs. We'll be buying a few more of these small ones as replacements.

      Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

      The cheap foam padding on the bottom is insecure and quickly moves off to one side,exposing sharp metal joints. I fixed it with some glue but not before it dug some truly horrific scratches into my week old Strat. $100's in damages due to careless and irresponsible design flaws, don't buy.

      Product great, website and ordering, not so much

      By Frank

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

      The stand is great and the build quality is excellent. The size it folds up to fits nicely in the small case I carry the cords and foot switch for my amp in. Getting it, however, was not only inconvenient, but required extra cost. According to the website, my local Guitar Center in Reno, NV had the stand in stock and I could go and get it for the advertised price pus tax. No problem, right? Wrong. I drove the 12 miles each way to the store only to find out that they had sold out of the stand. I was told by the salesman that it was unadvisable to trust what I read on the website. Since no one else offered this stand or one like it, and since the website still claimed that my local store had it in stock, I wasn't given the option of ordering it for in-store pickup, thereby saving the cost of shipping. I ordered it and had to pay the shipping cost as well as tax which brought the base price up by about 65%. I'm glad I bought the stand and I will buy from Guitar Center again, but now I will make sure I call the store first to verify that they have the item in stock.

      Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

      This stand is sturdy and doesn't take up much space. I have this in the corner of our guest bedroom and it does a nice job of securely holding my Jackson guitar without taking up a lot of space. We don't have kids and the dog is not allowed in the guest bedroom so I don't have to worry about anyone hitting it and knocking it over but this stand may not be the best choice for those with kids or pets.

        Comments about FretRest by Proline Electric Folding A-Frame Guitar Stand:

        Holds guitars very well, extremely low profile, you only see two tiny leg ends with a guitar on it. For my les paul the bottom sits on the rear edge of the body, the padding willl probably wear out over time, I will soon give it some kind of extra padding soon. I like them so I bought three.

          I just got stand for a Stratocaster I bought not too long ago. I was tired of laying it down on a suitable surface whenever I needed to put it down, and this stand was just the one I was looking for to remedy that. It's sturdy enough to hold your guitar in stable form, it's padded enough for a good and secure fit, it's compact when folded or in use, it's safe on the finish, and it doesn't cost too much. It had everything I was looking for in a stand, and I'm happy I bought it. I just might get another for my Telecaster.
