You'd keep them in a case that had a picture of a guitar on it?
my 3 live peacefully,in harmony with each other, under the bed. from where one only is summoned at night to please the master (me)
no doubt they talk about their nightly experiences to each other but i say whatever is goose for the horse that drank the water is too much to spoil the broth that broke the camels back
what model and make is that guitar...is it quite shallow?
Standing up in a case is the best way to store them. Keep them in a room with a temperature you would sleep in. If you have acoustics, watch the humidity. You don't have to get fancy. A quart jar filled with distilled water and an absorbant cloth stuffed in mouth so it sits in the water should generally keep the relative humidity about right. I don't know about extremely arrid places like Arizona. Wipe it down before it gets cased.
Sitting on stands so I can grab one and look at the others.
My Martin is in the case but I keep everything else on a long stand in the closet.
I love looking at the "music rooms" people have with all their guitars hanging on the walls. However, I don't think I could ever do the same. The idea of my guitars hanging on my wall would honestly induce anxiety in me throughout my workday wondering if they are safe lol.
I prefer them to be in the case, in a certain room of the house, humidity and temp controlled. Oh yeh, and never inform the girlfriends of how many guitars I actually own.
All my guitars are free range.
In cases or on wallhangers.
Safe and reasonably stable environment.
I know the safest way is to keep guitar in case. But it's not my way. I'm too lazy to take it out of case every time and put it back after I played. And I also like to look at my guitars. So they are on the stand:
Mine are under the covers, spooning each other all day and watching daytime tv. They get better tone that way.
A few on stands, a few in cases. I rotate them every once in a while. One is usually in some state of being dissembled, too...
My Tele right here next to me on a stand....my 61' RI SG usually in it's case when not played.
I keep all of mine in hardshell cases, for a couple reasons. First, they're protected from being accidentally knocked over or falling off the wall. Second, it keeps the dust off and the humidity at a fairly constant level. And third, it keeps them away from prying eyes. Maybe I'm paranoid, but for all I know, the plumber, or UPS guy, or your run-of-the-mill door-to-door salesman could be a notorious burglar who has a penchant for expensive guitars. What they don't see, won't tempt them.
It should be fine to leave them out. Leaving them in cases is usually a safe bet, unless it's a mid-60s Gretsch, in which case (no pun intended) the binding may self-destruct. Trust me, I speak from experience.
The only way to fly...
I leave my Les Paul locked in a case, like the gimp in Pulp Fiction. The Teles are on stands, that way they can keep an eye on me. My Esquire is on a stand, plugged in ready to go
I have a couple that are in cases, ready to throw in the car. Most of rest are in the rack in the studio, or on stands in the bedroom and living room.
Stack em like Firewood !
A side note, having survived a recent severe tropical "disturbance" (not technically a hurricane) I pondered the thought of moving my instruments from an upstairs room to the basement just in case trees fell on the roof! Didn't even give a thought about important documents or other family members' posessions! (Sorry, girls)
On the wall where they're easy to grab, out of the way and nice to look at.
