My Ultimate Guitar Stand has been rock solid, and I much prefer it to my old A-frame stands. However, I’ve noticed some wear on my SG‘s headstock, right where the stand’s self-closing yoke grips it. Disappointing!
But at some point I came to the unsurprising realization that it looks pretty stupid like that on stage.
So, on the hunt for an alternative solution, I briefly considered cutting a pair of old tube socks in half. 🙂 Then I came to my senses.
But, that led me to the idea of wrist sweat bands. Remember those? All the rage back in the 80’s!
I found a pair of cotton wrist sweatbands on eBay for just a couple bucks. I ordered the 3.5″ bands in black.
These fit perfectly over the Ultimate Guitar Stand’s yoke, and nicely protect the guitar’s headstock.
