Would this stand fit the Yamaha RBX range?

    This is a stand made by Fender specifically for it's Strats and Teles. I want to know if it will fit my RBX170. Maybe if someone here owns a Strat or Tele as well as any bass in the RBX range they could see how the shapes match.

    The Fender info for the stand is here, but I found a better pic (attached).

    I hope someone can help. Thanks guys.

    P.S. click the image, it gets bigger :D .

    Sorry for not just using the edit button, I wanted the bump.

    I've got an easier question. Is a Strat or Tele roughly the same depth (face to back) as a bass?

    I cant see why it wouldnt work.

    The tele is thicker than the stratocaster, but it all comes down to which bass you are talking about.

    I want to do it with the Yamaha RBX170. It's about 2 inches deep (from memory, I don't have it here with me).

    I dont think you'll have to worry about thickness. Just the center of gravity. Just try it out, I'm sure it'll be alright.

    Yeh, the centre of balance will depend on how high up the back of the body the little support strat reaches. It sould be OK.

    well, not really. The center of gravity, or center of balance, is where it is on the bass. It'll never change, unless you start taking chunks out of your bass. The point is, does the back peice reach ABOVE the center of gravity. But you got the idea, anyway.

    I think you'll be fine.
