Gravity is dangerous for guitars.
Earthquakes are real, and there is usually never any warning. Consideration should be heeded about the person driving while on their cellphone that misses their turn and plows into your house.
There is a reason that they make cases for guitars.
Upper left is a Squier M-80:
To its right is a PRS S2 Standard 22:
Then, a 5-string bass. Bottom row left is my beater Peavey Raptor Strat that I have kids use in a Rock Band Club I started in school (I'm a teacher).
To it's right is a heavily modified Yamaha EG112C2. It plays guitar and bass at the same time with some gear and playing changes:
I apologize to the OP for jacking the thread.
Thanks a lot! The tuners were an after thought that caused me to have to remake both of them in 2 pieces so the head stock stood off the wall. But worth it to me cuz I think the tuners added to the look.
I have a couple of stands around the house that have things I'm playing, the others are cased in the closet. Having owned/ worked in music stores over the years I see hangers as a inventory-display item designed to maximize space, as others have mentioned it's a long way to the floor..even stands are problimatic, but I find I play less if I need to un case each time I want to play.
I have a floor stand that holds 7, plus a single stage stand for the bedroom. Nothing on the walls, because wife.
What....Who's in charge?
You gotta pick your battles and know when it's not worth it
Neither. In my hands or in a case. But if it has to be one of the two, it's a Hamilton floor stand. Walls hooks have zero appeal to me.
I hear that Steve. 27 years with the same woman. Don't think I was really ever in charge. She let me think it once or twice.....I think.
Guitars on stands get kicked and knocked over too easily by kids and dogs. Hang the guitars up high and they survive better.
If they get dusty on the wall you have too many guitars to play regularly? Guitars in cases get lost in the closet and take more hassle to get out to play for ten minutes you have between activities.
As for the guys worried about stretching their guitar necks out ...
The strings pull with 125lbs curling the neck forward while the 7lb guitar weight tries to straighten it out too much?
I'm a guitar tech, and I fix a lot of broken guitars. Number 1 cause? Falling off a stand... The kids knocked it over, the drummer tripped on the chord.... I don't think I've ever repaired a guitar that fell off a wall hanger. Just sayin'....
I keep an acoustic and electric on guitar stands in the living room for playing there.
My guitar room is so small I have Hercules hangers by necessity. When I'm in there, and they're hanging, it is awesome to be able to just Grab & Go. When I am actively using them, they mostly stay in their cases because I get home set the case down and then grab again later.
The few guitars I'm not actively using, are basically stored in cases. I do not leave them on hangers
As a divorce attorney, this is a man who will never need my services.
I shall sort that tonight. Thank you.
Guitar Rack Stands for me....
Guitars sit on the side and take up very little room compared to normal stands. I don't need to look at my guitars, I just want them accessible.
I have 2 x 5 holders in my music room at home... (holds most of my instruments)
I have 1 x 3 holder for the stage.
most of them on wall hangers,a few on stands or standing against the wall/bed/couch...
important for me is, that I can see the guitars' "face"/frontside..that inspires me to play them..
that's why I don't like the "sliced bread" stands ..
Agreed, and not sure why they would be less dusty on a stand then on the wall? As for hanging, it that were an issue, there would be a bazillion threads on why someone won't buy guitars from stores that hang their guitars and ruin them LOL
Personally, I just don't want my guitars in cases in a closet, or under a bed. I want them out and easily reachable to play. I get why a stand or two, when working/playing at a desk, working with software for an amp or recording, etc is handy.
