To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have two of these stands for two different guitars. It fits my full size Taylor 310CE (dreadnought) but does not work for my slightly narrower nylon acoustic (Yamaha NTX900FM). Even for a nylon acoustic the Yamaha is slightly thinner than normal by (1/4" or so). The small nubs on the front of the stand are too low to catch this guitar so it will freely slide forward and end up on its back on the floor (see images; 1&2 are Yamaha, 3rd is dreadnought). I believe these stands come in a regular and a small size. I can't say if the small size would help since the Yamaha is thin but otherwise full length. I wouldn't trust these for any type of solidbody electric but they likely were ever meant for that; don't consider it a knock. Just know that it's only sturdy for a narrow range of guitars.
This was a pretty awesome guitar stand. I use it for my skinny guitar. I also tried my standard Yamaha guitar and it fits just as well. When the box arrived it came in two pieces. You slide the two pieces together and its done! Its ready to use just like that. It has a nice rubbery material on the edges where the guitar sits so it does not slip. Its sleek design makes this a great display for some of your most valuable guitars. The base is wide enough that the guitar will not tip over when it's on the stand. The best part about this guitar stand is that it is real easy to take apart and assemble that it makes it portable enough to travel with. You can slip it in a bag and set it up in seconds. Great for gigs! I'm totally getting more of these to add to my music room. I hope this was helpful! ROCK ON!
This guitar stand is the best! I had one of those "other" stands before and after hearing my guitar crash to the floor in the night (heartache) I threw it away and purchased this one. That was a month or so ago and my guitar and I have never been happier. I sleep much better now it is cradled in this stand. It's sturdy. We had a house full of guests this weekend and it was there to play but was safe when it wasn't being played. I love it! It's pretty too. I couldn't be happier :)
First and foremost it’s advertised as having the edges wrapped in soft leather, not true! It’s actually wrapped in a foam rubber gasket material. On top of that because of the rounded bottom edges it’s kind of like a rocking chair if you’ve got a $25 guitar you might be all right, If you’ve got an expensive guitar this is the last place you would want to rest it. How it got so many good reviews is beyond me!
This is my second CAHAYA guitar stand. The first one went together just fine, but this one was difficult to assemble. A close inspection revealed to me that the plywood used in the second stand was a little different from the plywood used in the first one. Using a flat wood rasp, I very carefully removed small amounts of wood from the inner surfaces of the slots, primarily from the center ply, which was a little higher than the outer ones. About 15 or so minutes of work resulted in a suitable stand.
I've had two of these stands for about a year now. They work fine with my resonator guitars; however, when you put your guitar into the stand, make sure that the guitar is balanced correctly in the stand. It may fall over if you don't.

Pros: -easy to assemble/dissasemble with just two pieces and it is easy to figure out where to align -portable, easy to pack away -there are grips to not scratch your guitar and hold it in place -compatible with almost all types of guitars: acoustic, electric, travel-sized, full-sized
Cons: -no grip on the bottom so will slip around on a smooth surface -very lightweight to can tip over with a small push - not ideal to be usual around children -wood-based so don't leave it in sunlight or around heat, it could warp
The protective tape on this stand is inadequate to protect the fine finish on an acoustic guitar. After a short time I found several scratches on the finish on my expensive Martin where it contacts the stand. Very disappointing.
This little stand is OK around the house, but certainly not a stage or gig stand. It tips forward fairly easy, and it's a two piece that slips together. Plus you have to be careful putting a guitar in the stand to ensure it's seated properly behind the two little front supports that retain a guitar. It's easy to kind of sit a guitar on top of them instead of behind them, and seated properly, (see the third pic). I use them at home in a little make-shift studio. I'm the only one that comes withing 15 feet of it. And it's not at all subject to getting bumped. So it works well there, and it's kind of cute.
