The TAL-1 Talon Guitar Stand is designed for thin-bodied instruments such as solidbody electric guitars or basses. It features a unique design which protects it from damage. If the stand is stepped on, or otherwise forced beyond its normal open position, the 2 parts are designed to separate rather than break. They are easily rejoined in seconds, and the Talon is as good as new. The Talon folds with one hand in a single motion. When folded, it is about an inch thick at its thickest point and easily fits in the pouch of most gig bags.
