Ready for some guitar minutiae? Go deep down into the geekery with Guitar Site‘s Guitar Stand Guide. We all know that a guitar stand is handy, but did you realize that they can actually damage an instrument? As GS exhorts:

(H)eed this caution – when not in use, it is always safest to put your guitar in its case. Some of the foam and rubber used on guitar stands might cause discoloration or even damage to your guitar’s finish. Thin finishes like Nitrocellulose which are found on expensive guitars are said to be more susceptible.

So there you go. Now browse the stands discussed, from the utilitarian JamStand AG75 ($9.99) to the Take A Stand Handcrafted Wood stand which doubles as futuristic furniture ($325).

See them all right here.
