Solid Ground Stands was born in 2016 from the idea that when your fine guitar is not in your hands, it deserves to sit on an equally fine stand. Unfortunately, there are many guitar stands out there that function poorly and actually put your prized instrument at unnecessary risk. But even 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 your beautiful guitar on a stand you can trust that is equally functional and attractive? 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 in any environment. After months and months of sketches, drawings, models, prototypes, and numerous jigs, the design was finally refined and named the Solid Ground Stand.

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.
