Hey there, guitar enthusiasts! I'm the proud designer of the Fret37 Acoustic S1 guitar stand, and also an avid user of it. As a passionate guitarist, I've always been on the lookout for the perfect spots to play my acoustic guitar. But as many of you might relate, the challenge has always been finding a safe and convenient place to set the guitar down when I need to pause. Enter the Acoustic S1 - a game-changer in the world of guitar accessories. Before diving into my list of top unconventional places to play the guitar, let's discuss what sets the Acoustic S1 apart from conventional stands.
Fret37 Acoustic S1: Why it’s a Game-ChangerAlways Attached: Unlike the bulky traditional stands where you constantly have to dock and undock your guitar, the Acoustic S1 attaches directly to the guitar. This allows instant transitioning from playing to resting your instrument.
Unparalleled Portability: Weighing in at just 5.7 ounces, this lightweight marvel is also extremely compact. This design ensures that your guitar can fit into most cases with the stand attached (barring a few tight-fitting hard cases).
Versatile Compatibility: Want to use your strap? Need to plug in your electric-acoustic? No worries! The Acoustic S1 has got you covered.
Streamlined Design: Perfect for displays on shelves, mantles, counters, and more. It also allows for multiple guitars to be placed close to each other, saving space.
However, it's essential to be aware of the surroundings. Although the stand is sturdy, accidents can happen, especially with pets, children, or inattentive guests around.
