About


What is the Guitar Throne

Guitar Throne is the world’s first handcrafted natural wood acoustic guitar stand and player’s throne. A clean modern design developed to provide the ultimate safe stand for your guitar and comfortable position to sit while you play.

The Origin of The Guitar Throne

As a guitar player, collector, and teacher for over 30 years I used many different guitar stands and I saw a need for improvement. I knew I wanted to create a stand that could also be used as a seat to play guitar.

The Idea

Original concept cut out of a wine case box

One day while running on the beach the perfect design just popped into my head. I was so inspired I ran home and cut the first prototype from a cardboard wine case. Although it was only cardboard it held the guitar perfectly so I knew the design worked.

The Design

Our current design has been refined to safely hold the guitar in place, as safe as a king in his throne. To prevent the guitar from tipping over we added our patented natural wood stabilizers. Also the precise angles of our design prevent any damage to the finish of the guitar as it only touches the stand in three places.

Once flipped over the Guitar Throne is ready for players of all heights to take a seat and jam away all night. In developing the design I had hundreds of students and artists play on the Guitar Throne to achieve the ideal height. The Guitar Throne also works a leg rest for those who like to stand and play.

Materials

The standard Guitar Throne is made from cabinet grade birch plywood in a natural finish. A hardwood Guitar Throne option is also available in either Walnut, Mahogany, or Cherry. Also a Guitar Throne Custom Shop is ready for any wood, color, or graphics options.

Risks and challenges

We’ve already identified our vendors, negotiated timeline and pricing details with them, designs are final and we’re just waiting for the green light to start production. Additionally, for specific elements, where there might be higher risk to the production timeline, we’ve identified alternatives just in case to mitigate this risk.

That being said, there’s always a chance that we might be late, but we promise to keep you updated and notified as soon as we know when things aren’t going as planned.

One more thing, as soon as the project goal is reached, even if it is before the campaign has ended, we’ll be putting the wheels in motion with our vendors and manufacturers so things will actually start happening before you even get charged!
