Assembly:
I was given the display model from the Great American Guitar show in Philly. It was very simple to put together. I only needed a Phillips Head screwdriver and single-handed, I assembled it in less then ten minutes.  (see assembly video at the bottom of this page) 

Reliability & Durability:
I have only had this set up for about 2 weeks now but it seems to be solid. I play a different guitar every day so it has gotten some use. It does not wobble or lean like some stands and I have complete confidence that my guitars will be safe in this stand. 

The Stand I was given set up in a bedroom.
Impression:  
To start, the stand looks like a piece of high end furniture with a nice herringbone inlay pattern and a classic f hole carved on either side. This is a functional piece of furniture that would make a great addition to anyone's studio, man cave, or living room. Since most of our spouses frown upon the sight of our beloved guitars, this stand is a great way to make both you and your better half happy by incorporating a beautiful accent piece to any room and freeing up your current storage space for important things like shoes (and other non-essential items your spouse may enjoy).

My advice:
This stand is amazing. It is durable, elegant, and keeps the guitars out of harm's way while showcasing their beauty. If your spouse is nagging you about how ugly your guitars look, if you are running out of space, or just want to dress up a room or studio; this is the stand for you. I say buy it!
