Here is a folding guitar stand that I made out of copper tube. It was ten times the trouble of simply buying a factory made stand, but if you are a musical plumber, you might enjoy having one!

The guitar shown in the first photo is a mini, travel guitar. I really like this guitar (a Yamaha JR-1). Easy action and good value. If I'd had this guitar as a kid (rather than the finger lacerator), I might have learned to play better.
