The GS415B plus is a guitar stand that features Hercules' "auto-grip" technology, which allows for a secure hanging position without the need for manual locks on the neck support.

Another important distinction of this particular model is that the yoke is foldable, saving more space when collapsed for storage.

The grip works with many different guitar neck sizes with nut-widths that fall between 1.57" and 2.05".

It also features a convenient height adjustment mechanism that makes it easier to accommodate guitars of different lengths.


  • Compatible Guitar Types: Electric Guitar, Electric Bass, Acoustic Guitars
  • Stand Base: Tripod
  • Portability: Medium
  • Weight: 4 lbs
  • How it Holds Your Guitar: Gravity and Neck Clip
  • Nitrocellulose Safe: Yes

Overall response to the GS415B Plus is favorable, often commended for its convenient auto grip feature. Most users also rate it highly for being sturdy and for not looking like a generic guitar stand. Good portability is also part of the many reasons why owners love this stand.

There are some who caution that you can accidentally trigger the quick height adjust feature, and this can be dangerous when you have a guitar on the stand.

With its combination of convenience and portability, the GS415B Plus will make a good stand for home or stage use.
