Those Guyatones a pretty nice and that one looks in very good condition :love:

I don't see the legs for sale very often, but I think it's possible to retrofit something....
On an other board, in another time:
"I also have a Fat Goat HB/P90 on my bastardized f-hollowed V, which is made of God-knows what kind of wood and of how many pieces. That guitar sounded OK when I installed one Shlabotnik pup on it; it actually became alive, very soaring; but I ended up preferring the Fat Goat, which gives me a darker, more "barking" tone as well as more "CHANK" and (maybe) better dynamics when played clean."

If eventually you do do, make sure it's a sturdy keyboard stand. That's a pretty heavy keyboard! :lol: :rock: :snax:

A keyboard stand will do just fine. I use a keyboard stand with a guitar case on top of it if I need to have my lapsteel on a stand(if I'm switching between guitar and lapsteel mid-song).

What type stand do you use, Ognoy? All depends on the weight of your rig and the stand, I guess - some lapsteels are fairly lightweight - some consoles can get pretty heavy (though I have lifted some vintage synths that were also pretty heavy). My pedal steel tops 50 lbs. - still ain't no Rhodes/Hammond or even a Farfisa....

Still, the couple of keyboard stands I've had for my synths have seemed pretty flimsy - maybe I just need to look around for something mo betta :idk:

i have a typical x-form factor keyboard stand made of extruded square aluminum tubing. i'm pretty sure it could support me if i put a plank on it, and i weigh 170 pounds.
