“The D&A Gigstand guitar stand is an ingenious, simple and incredibly useful piece of equipment. It's one of those items you come across that you want to tell everyone about. I have the acoustic version of the stand but I find it to be equally well-suited for my electric guitars because there is no slippage - the instrument stays exactly where you place it. I can't imagine a guitarist not loving this. Talk about building a better mousetrap!”
