So - since I didn't quite find the answer I was looking for, despite doing a search - I thought I'd ask!
While I know it's arguably best to keep instruments in their case while not in use, I'd rather have easier (and more attractive) access to mine.
I'd like to have both guitars and/or a mandolin out if possible.
The black metal guitar stands just don't look very nice. I have a single Hercules stand already. I don't have room for a rack - plus, they also don't look very nice. The wall is out. I have a music room that is safe - just needs to be sturdy enough to thwart cats.
I can't even find a DIY example on-line that I like.
Fender does make a nice-looking single or double wooden stand that is almost what I think I'd like, but not quite either.
Just wondering what others do or if there's an option I haven't come across yet.
