Our Guitar Workstand Options will convert your workbench space into an efficient utility for guitar repairs, setups and maintenance. The guitar is supported above the bench at a comfortable working height leaving maximum space for tools underneath.
In addition to guitar setups and repairs, the workstand is suitable for arduous fretting tasks including fretboard sanding, fret pressing and levelling. The workstand is also a feature of the guitar workstation and thus could be integrated into a fret press should this be a future need.
Two versions of the workstand are available:
1. Multi-Use Guitar Workstand.
2. Modular Guitar Workstand.
GUITAR NECK & BODY SUPPORTS
The guitar neck and body supports are robustly made using oak, aluminium and stainless steel components.
The neck support platform is made from 95mm wide x 19mm thick oak and covered with 3mm thick hard neoprene rubber. A 3mm thick cork mat sits on top of the rubber. The cork is a wear item and is provided loose for easy replacement. The guitar neck platform is supported by two 40mm square aluminium uprights.
For correct use the guitar neck should seat flat along the length of the neck platform. To achieve this, the guitar body support height is adjusted until the neck is set horizontal.
The base of the workstand is made from 70mm wide x 25mm thick oak and is fitted with support legs and 2 rubber feet at each end.
NECK CLAMP JAWS
The neck clamp secures the guitar onto the workstand and provides additional stability for working.
The clamp jaws have soft contact pads that are contoured for neck angle clamping and parallel clamping. The height of each clamp pad can be adjusted individually for the best contact with the edge of the fretboard. The complete unit can be adjusted up or down to suit the neck thickness and fully lowered clear of the neck support when not required.
The clamp jaws are sprung open for ease of operation and clamped via a thumb-wheel arrangement. Fast adjustment between different sized necks can be achieved by compressing the jaws with one hand and spinning the thumb wheels to open or reduce the jaw width. The outside of the clamp jaws can also be used to spread the strings.
Length 760mm (x 70mm wide base)
