Hola! Universal Music Guitar Stand
As you’d guess from the name, the Hola! Universal Music Guitar Stand is a guitar stand that can hold acoustic, bass, and electric guitars. It accomplishes this through “grooves” in the cradle (the part that holds the guitar up). Different instruments slot into different parts of these grooves, which allow them to be held up at the proper angle depending on their size.
The stand also folds flat (and in half) for compact storage. Like other a-frame stands, the Hola! Universal Music Guitar Stand can fit in the main pocket of a gig bag without too much difficulty.
The manufacturer told us that they use a form of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that is safe to use with nitrocellulose finishes. It also uses velveteen rubber padding at all contact points, which will help to ensure that you guitar doesn’t get any scrapes or dents while you’re putting the guitar on the stand and taking it off to play.

The market response to the Hola! Universal guitar stand is mostly positive, with reports of it working well with various instruments from acoustic guitars, to electric guitars, bass guitars and even ukulele. Portability is also a big factor in why many rate it highly.
There are a few who caution that this stand doesn't always hold the guitar in place well, allowing the guitar to wobble. Wobbling however is a natural limitation of A-frame design since they don't have neck support.
With its extremely light weight, the Hola! Universal Music Guitar Stand is easily one of the most portable guitar stands in the market.
