Default Wide neck bass stand?

I'm starting to realize that finding a stand for my BT6 might not be as simple as I thought.

I was looking at the Hercules GS415B but it doesn't seem to be wide enough. My BT6 is about 54mm at the nut. (Ken, you can correct me if I'm wrong )

Any advice? I've been told that the above Hercules is too narrow for that width of neck.

I also can't find any info on how wide the Ultimate GS-1000 Pro is at the top either.

Thanks.

Don't get the ultimate, it's not wide enough for a Smith 6. Otherwise it's a nice stand.

Thanks Ronen. So Hercules and Ultimate are out.

Anyone have any thoughts at all on one? Some company must make one

Actually Hercules makes one that is wide enough, I have it and it fits perfect on my Smith 6. The model is GS455B

Look for that one!

Best,

Unfortunately, the Hercules GS455B is not available in Canada.

Still looking

Just finally found one available in Canada: https://www.axemusic.com/bass/bass-a...gtr-stand.html

Looks like the one.

Thanks for helping out
