    Hello y'all! Great forum here.....

    I just bought a USA Guild Pilot 5 and it slides off of either of the two guitar stands I own.
    Can anybody who's owned one make a suggestion (other than "keep that pointy thang at home, you metal throwback..." or "stash it in the gig bag....") and help me out?

    Thanks.

    I used to have a pre-fender Guild Pilot 4 string before some putz stole it. Great bass! Anyhow, I know your delima with getting it to stay upright on a standard stand. I switched to the type of stand that hangs your bass from its headstock, though I was always afraid it would topple-over due to it seeming a little off-balance. I now use the rock-case type stands pbh showed in the 1st link. Though my g**tarist hates that stand because his gibson flying-v won't fit on it.
     
  4. I use a hercules headstock lock stand that hangs the bass from the headstock. Very balanced and secure.

    Thanks all. I will take a trip down to GC or Mannys to see about the Hercules....
