Folding Guitar Stand by juniortan May 3, 2010

Featured Thing!


This folding guitar stand is actually attached to your guitar. Folded up, it does not impede with your guitar playing, but once you need to put your guitar down, just pull out the support legs and you can safely place your guitar on the ground. Great between gigs!

There are two main sets to print:

  1. Angry Japanese elephant - there are two choices, one with 30 degree (max) angle per leg, and the other with 45 degree; chose one that will fit your guitar.
  2. The Rest - Assorted parts for assembly (see instructions below)


Angry Japanese elephant:

  1. Bolt the two 'tusks' to the angry elephant using M3x16 bolts

The Rest:

  1. Glue together the two sets: The support arm between the legs and the small peg with the M3 hole, and the strut assembly (2 parts) - see pic for more details.

Bolt everything together using 2 M3x16 bolts

The Angry Japanese elephant and the leg holder (the last piece from the Rest pieces) should be secured to the guitar back using double sided tape.

I used 4.76mm (3/16) aluminium rods for the legs - should you be using anything else, please readjust the holes in the elephant tusks and the gaps in the support arms in the provided Sketchup files.
