The new models feature a wider mounting area to better accommodate extended-range instruments.

Mount Juliet, TN (December 29, 2017) -- Hercules guitar stands have long been known as top-of-the-line support and protection for your instruments. We are pleased to announce the next generation of our AGS (Auto Grab System) stands and hangers.

The GS414B Plus and the GSP38WB Plus feature a wider mounting area to better accommodate extended range instruments (up to 2.05” nut width), an upgraded height adjustment clutch, and upgraded rubber feet for increased stability.

Included with this stand and hanger is the new Hercules accessory, N.I.N.A., Narrow Instrument Neck Adjustment, which is designed to increase the thickness of the AGS yoke so that it can accommodate instruments such as ukulele, mandolin and banjo (as small as 1.1”).

The new Hercules GS414B Plus and GSP38WB Plus will begin shipping to dealers in March.

GS414B Plus - MSRP: $69.99 - MAP: $49.99

GSP38WB Plus - MSRP: $27.99 - MAP: $21.99

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
