Full description


Please note...this is a 'Prop' stand, it is not designed for hanging heavy instruments. The base of the instruments needs to be able to rest on the floor. Light instruments such as fiddle and uke may be hung on this stand.

Steve 'Eagle' Noon writes …It’s almost two decades since I saw my first ‘Pub Prop', It was placed in my hand by the inventor, Brian Rathmill saying “tell me what you think of this”? It was an ingenious idea and a must for the ‘gig bag kit’. It was hand crafted from steel, milled, drilled, filled, hinged and threaded with a rubber protection sleeve around the neck support. As a qualified precision engineer myself I thought …Wow this is a brilliant idea …but very expensive to manufacture. Brian pursued his idea through to the production of a ‘moulded’, affordable ‘Pub Prop’ which is the excellent product that we see today. Brian was from our ‘neck of the woods’ and I play music with friends in the Manchester sessions that still own an original ‘Briarmill Table Prop Stand’, he is sadly missed on the local music scene, but Brian left behind for us a legacy in his ingenious ‘Pub Prop’.

all good as far as i know - it's a present so I can't really give an opinion

this is cheating, actually. It's a present for someone else, so I have no idea if it is excellent or not. But if it isn't, I'll be back on this forum...

Bought this as a gift to prevent a friend damaging her guitar by just leaning it against a table in a crowded room. Have had mine for years, but also use a stand.

Great, simple idea. Very practical, lightweight and small. Holds the guitar very well when the base is on the floor. (Wouldn't use for hanging heavy or valuable instruments).
