    Anyone into stands for 3, 4, 5, or 6 guitars? The Hercules GS525B looks interesting!

    I've got two of the Hercules three guitar stands.
    You can easily fit 4 electrics on one with the additional spacers/holder kit.
    Way more secure/steady than any other stand I've every used.
    I've got several nitro finish guitars and never had problems with them and these stands.
    I probably should have bought the 5 instead of another three, but then I would have had to buy even more guitars!!

    Looks like it can react with nitro so be careful. I have a Les Paul with a big mark on the back from a guitar stand reaction.

    That's the confirmation I want to hear. I have a few guitars with nitro finishes that I am afraid to put on a stand. I'm just tried of taking them out of their bags and stuff lol

    I have a 3 guitar stand. No issues with my Strats' finish and the rubber padding. I put my guitars in cases as soon as I am done though. YMMV

    I wrote Hercules to confirm before using.
    You may (for your own peace of mind) want to contact them.
    My e-mail to/from them was a couple years back.
    They responded to me quickly (within a day or so).

    I use the three banger - Strat, Tele, Strat in open D.

    Good quality. The first one I had got sticky on the rubber handle after many years of gig use. No way to clean off the stickiness. I called them, they said it was a known problem and sent a brand new one for free. Impressive! I've been using it for several years now - no issues.
