   Mark Tindle / Founder-Designer - Music has always been a part of my family for as long as I can remember. I have played professionally for many years, and now have the joy of seeing some musical talents emerge from my six children. I have also done a fair amount of woodworking in my time including custom furniture and mountain dulcimers. It pleases me immensely to be able to combine my love for woodworking with my passion for music by offering these handcrafted instrument stands.  

 Our Story - Solid Ground Stands was born from the idea that a fine guitar deserves to sit on an equally fine stand. There are many guitar stands out there that function poorly and actually put your prized instrument at unnecessary risk. But even the ones that work better do little for the aesthetic appeal. Most guitars are beautiful displays of fine craftsmanship, and in many cases they are amazing works of art! So, why not display them on a stand that is equally attractive and functional? Thus the quest began to design a guitar stand that is not only safe, secure, stable, and portable, but also a beauty to behold and one that will complement any guitar. After months and months of sketches, drawings, models, prototypes, and numerous jigs, the design was finally refined and named the Solid Ground Stand.
