I have been playing bass guitar for about thirty years or so and over the years I have found that it's become annoyingly painful to hang a heavy bass on my shoulder anymore. I have therefore been reluctantly looking into trying to find what I would call a "bass guitar holder", for lack of a better term. What I'm talking about is not a simple guitar stand that you set your guitar on while you're on break on stage, but a device that holds your guitar in a playing position so that you can walk right up to it and play it without the use of a strap. I'm afraid I don't know what these devices are called, but I know that someone on this forum knows what I'm looking for and can maybe help me find out where I can buy one. If anyone has any info about this particular piece of equipment I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks. Musichead.
