GUITAR WORKSTAND

GMC Luthier Tools Guitar Workstand Options provide a strong, secure platform for guitar repairs, setups and general maintenance. The workstand is suitable for many fretting tasks including fretboard sanding, fret pressing, fret levelling, dressing and nut filing.

Three versions of the workstand are available:

 

1. Multi Purpose Guitar Workstand.

2. Solid Body Guitar Workstand.

3. Modular Guitar Workstand.

CONSTRUCTION

The workstand is modular in design and is constructed from oak, aluminium and stainless steel components.

 

GUITAR NECK & BODY SUPPORTS

The guitar neck support and body support are solidly made for durability and stability in use. The design of the supports vary depending on the type of workstand - see below for further information on the different designs. 

 

The neck support platform is 95mm wide oak and covered with 3mm thick hard neoprene rubber. A cork mat sits on top of the rubber.

The cork is a wear item and is provided loose for easy replacement.

 

The guitar neck should seat flat along the length of the support. To achieve this, the guitar body support height is adjusted until the neck is set horizontal.

The guitar body support is made from 12mm thick plywood and covered with 5mm thick neoprene foam.

CENTRAL NECK CLAMP / JAWS

A sturdy central neck clamp secures the guitar onto the workstand and provides provides stability for working.

 

The clamp jaws have soft contact pads that are specially shaped to cater for neck angle clamping and parallel clamping. The jaws can be raised/lowered to suit individual application.

 

The clamp jaws are sprung open and clamped via a thumb-wheel. The outside of the clamp jaws can also be used to spread the strings.
