I plan on buying a Gibson Explorer this summer and I'm just wondering if they work on normal guitar stands. I know the body shape is alot different from les pauls and what have you, but wondering if normal guitar stands still hold them and if not, is there a brand or something that sell special ones that will? Thanks


You know you're a guitar player if you think this following sentence is funny:

Gain makes everything better! Break a leg? Here, lets put some distortion on it!

Well, I know I can hang it on the wall cuz that's just headstock stuff, but if I were to take it elsewhere and want to put it on a stand, I think it's Hercules brand stands that are different from others, I'm not sure, I think you hang from the headstock on those somehow.... but I'm not sure

Yeah, Hercules makes EXCELLENT guitar stands, I lovem, very sturdy, huge, monstrous, holds it by the headstock and it's all cool. Portable too.

^Indeed they do, i own an Explorer and a Hercules stand, its quite pricier than a basic stand obviously, but it works superbly for any guitar with an "awkward" shape so to say.

you guys obviously don't know a whole lot. my Kelly will sit on a floor stand just fine and it has relatively the same shape as the explorer so it will work fine. but i agree with you guys too, wall stands are the best and they display your axe more prominently
