Anyone know where I can find a guitar stand that will hold my Ricks? My guitar stands won't (too big).

I was thinking, maybe a stand for viola? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I use a ukulele stand. Your local music store should have a selection for you to choose from.

I've used a Hercules Stand like that for a square neck Dobro, but I've never tried one with a lap steel. I think Fender might be making a similar stand to the Hercules now. I like them because they're small and travel well. Let us know what you wind up with. Good luck.

K&M 15520 Violin / UkuĀ­lele Stand. Low price, light weight, folds flat. I have 3 of these ... you can also use them for Washboards quite effectively!

Ended up going with a Stag mando/uke stand. I like it. Nice and sturdy! And only $12.50: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B8ZFDQW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Not too shabby!

Here's a pic of my Rick NS in the stand (and, please excuse the shameless self-promotion, but this guitar is for sale over in the classified section. PM me for info):
