I had my doubts about buying this portable guitar stand because unlike stands with high backs, I didn't know if it would support my tenor banjo with a heavy resonator on the back. However when it arrived I was totally impressed. Yes, it is portable and light but it's made really well and all of the components are high quality. It's very easy to setup and collapses in seconds. My heavy tenor banjo (Bacon Silver Bell from 1933) fits right in the stand and is stable and solid. Thank you for making such a quality product.
