Currently using to hold an electric bass, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, and baritone ukulele. All fit well without much fear of them bumping into each other. I use the stand to hold my instruments in my room and I have no intention of traveling to gigs with this stand. I think it might work for gigs, but it wouldn't have nearly as long of a lifespan. There's side to side wobble that might lead to breakage if provoked. But for standing still holding guitars, it works perfectly fine and can be kept pretty close to the wall unlike some other stands.
