    Welcome! Nice collection, and well done display. I have been thinking of putting up wall hangers, but I'm concerned about spacing. I have a stud finder, but I'd like to be able to stagger and display more guitars than one every 16" or so. What did you do? In your second photo it looks like you have a wall system. True?

    In the second picture, that is just a board (1x6 or 1x8 i think) that I painted white and screwed into the wall studs, then screwed the hangers into the board so I didn't have to worry about stud spacing. Has worked fine thus far. Hangers I use are String Swing.

    Now that is a proper introduction post and a wonderful collection! What amps do you have there?

    Also, are you still writing music?
    Welcome aboard! (You'll likely end up with more Tele's in no time. :D)

    A severe case of under-telecasterness. You've come to the right place to get that sorted. Welcome!

    Amps in the picture are Vox AC15, Marshall Origin 50, Peavey JSX, and Peavey 6505+. Also have an early 70s Peavey Mace, a Jet City Amelia, and a PRS "Tuxedo" 30. But honestly, at this point I mostly just run into my Axe FX for everything, the amps rarely get cut on.

    I still write and record, but it's always been a very personal thing to me. I don't write for other people to hear it, just to get my own thoughts out of my head lol.

    As far as Tele's go, the next one on my list to buy is the custom shop Merle Haggard "Tuff Dog" Tele, but they are a little pricey so haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Hi.

    Welcome.

    Nice.

    Ha ha, I immediately lazered in on the outlets in the second photo. And with much envy. Because this morning I'm desperately running out...

    Use mollys, you don't need to hit studs. I know from experience. I didn't even use mollys on some of them, just straight into sheet rock and had zero problems.
