Thank you for your answers.
Uh, not in my experience.
considering basses usually hang from their necks at music shops, I doubt it.
My basses hang by their necks on my wall
I've used a Neck Hanging Stand for at least 7 years.
Have had problems with 'standard stands' though.
I kept smacking the input jack when putting down while plugged in.
I'm talking about this kind of stand (not this exact model):
I use the stand Ultimate support makes with the telescoping upright and the three legs that fold up and lock in place for easy transport. Guitar center for $25 I think. best darn stand I ever used and easy to bring to gigs because it folds up into 15" long piece of nothing. Other stands I found were too easy to tip over. This one is very stable. Beleive it!
I bought a hercules double stand for gigging purposes. On the one hand I spent way too much on a stand, on the other hand, it rocks in every single category including the swimsuit category.
I already have one like the one I posted before, which I like very much.
The problem is somebody on other forum told me that had neck problems using this kind of stand.
I believe that the neck problems can be associated with other factors.
So I just want to know your opinion about this kind of stand.
That stand really doesn't hold it by the neck, since the bass would be supported by the bottom pegs so I really don't see how it would hurt the neck, unless maybe when it locks, it ia too tight and puts pressure on the neck, which I don't know if it's possible with that stand.
I have the same stand tonenazi has as well and like it very much.
IMO: Don't like it this...................Prefer this.
Cheap guitar stands with surgical rubber (usually the yellow, powdery stuff) will leech some of the plasticizers into solvent-based (i.e. non-catalyzed) finishes causing damage. Nitrocellulouse lacquers, water based lacquers, and maybe some cheaper polyurethanes are susceptible to this. So don't put your Gibson or nitro finished bass in a cheap guitar stand or on a vinyl couch!
I just ordered one of these. Ultimate GS700 I'll let you know.
In the bicycle industry Ultimate is well known for fine quality repair stands.
