The Planet Waves Guitar Rest turns any flat surface into a guitar stand. The guitar rest is placed near a suitable surface and the guitar is placed against the holder. The surface material of the guitar rest prevents almost all slipping and sliding. The perfect solution for situations where no guitar stand is available.
Not suitable for regular use with guitars with nitrocellulose lacquer!
I bought this so I could rest my bass against my speaker cab without needing to bring an extra stand and take up more "real estate" than needed. I am ok with setting the body of my bass on the floor. It stands on the strap button and strap in this position. On a hard floor I might get some wear on the strap button; but that is a minor piece to replace and no problem to me. My speaker cab is the right height so the Guitar Rest on top grabs the neck pertfectly up against the head. Only problem was that I felt the rubber material of the guitar rest didnt contact properly on the rough surface of the cab, and I was afraid it would slide ... I am sure it sits better on a smooth surface like a table or desk. I solved this easily; I found there screws of the right size and just fastened the guitar rest to the cab permanently. Even this is not the intended way to use it, it works brilliantly for me! So my rating is five stars if you do as I did. Three stars for stability without my screws :-)
For non critical situations like when you want to rest your guitar against something but there's nothing soft to hand except a table or a sideboard or even a piano keyboard, which is what mine is doing, then this is fine to hold a guitar upright just as long as there are no people or animals likely to bump into it! Not for the stage but then anyone thinking of using it for that is not really thinking ahead. Takes up hardly any room in a guitar case or gig bag though and has its uses as I say.
