Hercules

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

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
