Always on the hunt for sturdy yet portable stands for gigging. I bought a couple of these Fretrest stands from GC and I've been very happy with them. They fold up small, nice rubber to protect finishes. http://www.guitarcenter.com/FretRest-by-Proline/Electric-Folding-A-Frame-Guitar-Stand.gc They were $14 when I bought mine. Had them for over six months of gigging. I was pretty surprised to see the negative reviews, especially about the rubber deteriorating. So far mine are still like new and I trust any of my basses on them on my gigs.
