Just got another batch of steel guitar workstands. Designed and manufactured by forum member Ross Shafer, these handy stands allow easy access to the tuners, changer and strings while working on the underside of your instrument.

https://www.steelguitarshopper.com/pedal-steel-workstand/.

Pictures are of the prototype. There may be minor cosmetic differences in the unit you receive. More pictures at www.steelguitarshopper.com/productimage.php?product_id=2420

They did! The initial run of 12 sold out over the weekend. I've just now set it so that you can pre-order to get in on the next batch.

The cup cut outs aren't meant for beverages, although a shot glass will certainly fit. They're intended for use with small Dixie cups to hold small parts in.

Dixie cups are an awesome shop tool!

Just a shout out to thank Ross Shafer and Sierra Instruments for making this happen. You guys are great! Cool

Ross sent me this picture of the next batch in its first manufacturing stage.

Bob, I opened the box and what a NICE product. It's even stained. Well thought out and lite weight.

Everything about the transaction was perfect.

Wow!


I love this picture, Ron. Work on your pedal steel in your living room, kitchen, anywhere!

Looks way cool & useful - What's the length?
Wondering if it will fit my ZBs.

The supports are 21.75" long, and the distance between them is adjustable up to 11". I'd be surprised if your guitar didn't fit on it.

Great Idea. Looking forward to giving this a try. I'm certain it'll beat using towels, books and the kitchen table. Very Happy

Looks well thought out. Are the keyhead and the changer exposed on both ends? How about a picture with a guitar-on-board.

Here it is with my Sierra S-10, a very small guitar:



Here's with a Carter D-10. You tend to lose the benefit of the trays with a double body:



There is width to spare with the Carter. Full extension is about 11" between the supports:

I was balancing a pedal throw yesterday and thinking how useful one of these would be. Bought one today. Hopefully, this means only flipping the D-10 over once to work on it, rather than multiple times to test the results of each adjustment.

b0b, are these units stout enough to take the weight of a Fender 400, cable-pull PSG?

TIA Cool
