JBrent Woodworks Releases New Hybrid Guitar Stand

The new model comfortably holds up to three acoustics and three electrics.

Adding to the company's line of fine furniture-grade hardwood guitar stands, JBrent Woodworks has introduced a new hybrid stand that accommodates a mixture of electric and acoustic guitars.


JBrent's previous models were 3- and 5-place acoustic and 4- and 6-place electric configurations. Where previous models were made to hold either acoustic or electric guitars, the new hybrid model holds both.

The new hybrid stand, with places for 3 acoustic and 3 electric guitars, nestles them comfortably in a stand that only measures 37-3/4 inches across. It can accommodate acoustic guitars having a body depth of 5-1/2 inches with ease.

Features

  • Beautiful, naturally finished hardwoods
  • Graceful maple/walnut inlays in the legs
  • The guitar rests on ¾" poly foam covered in rich red velvet – protective and attractive
  • The entire weight of the guitar rests on its base – secure and safe for the instrument
  • The neck rest is radiused for minimal contact with the neck of the guitar as it sits in the stand
  • Stands are shipped disassembled to save on shipping, but come with easy-to-use assembly instructions, pictures and all necessary tools, screws, and parts
  • The full dimensions of the stand are 30"H x 37-3/4"W x 13"D

The price of JBrent's new hybrid stand varies depending on the wood that is chosen. It ranges from $229 for Cherry to $309 for Genuine Mahogany and Walnut (as shown). Other hardwoods are optional -- just call or write JBrent directly for availability. Visit the JBrent website at jbrentwoodworks.com for an overview of the company's offerings.

Can a bona fide funk guru help design a better Klone?

Wide range of gain. Very useful EQ.

Doesn’t do the Klon clean boost as well as original.

Jackson Audio’s pedal collaboration with modern funk hero Cory Wong could have taken a few different paths. Considering Wong’s style, a compressor would have been an obvious choice. Instead, the Optimist is a dual overdrive that builds on a Klon-inspired baseline, adds a second overdrive, and has a clever EQ to create a super-flexible overdrive. Named after Wong’s second album, The Optimist suits Wong’s exuberant and fun-loving personality. But it also describes the way you might approach a gig with this pedal in hand. Together, the two separate overdrives and active EQ give you enough tones to cover almost any gig this side of Slayer cover band.
