In the case, or out? Why?
I keep all my guitars in cases or bags. Stupid stuff tends to happen to me when they're out. Speaking of, I need to fix a pretty good sized chip in a maple fretboard of a T style
I have a couple that hang in my office, I usually have one out at home, a couple in cases, and my gig guitar is normally in the case. I don't believe most acoustics are all that finicky. The one I take out is normally in a case for convenience and my Gibson is in the case to protect it from me.
Mines in a hard case, it seems very fragile to be left out for me to knock over
I'm constantly going from one to the other (tele, acoustic, mandolin) so I seldom if ever put either in a case, they're all either on the couch or leaning against the couch within reach
Hidden from my wife.
All my guitars hang or are on stands for easy access and display. I like to look at all of my friends.
Mine is on my bed when I’m not playing it.
It has a nice fancy gig bag to travel in.
Hanging on the wall, with the rest of the arsenal.
In their case with the humidy packs in them in my office. The Martins anyhow. I track the room's humidity as well.The old Yamahas, still in the case in the basement/jam space. It's a little cooler down there. All my electric, expect one are down there.
Same here with my Martin. I’d like to leave it out for easy access, but I don’t want to knock it or dry it out.
I used to keep my martin in its case all the time, but, I always grabbed one of the other acoustics that hang on the wall. Finally, after thinking of selling g the martin because 'i never play it' I staryed keeping it on the wall with the hoi polloi. Now it gets the love and attention it deserves.
During extreme winter months, when the heater runs nonstop and air becomes excessively dry, I run a room humidifier to prevent damage to my I instruments.
Mine are hanging. I hard case them when going out of the house.
gorgeous collection there! Hope you don’t use your fireplace
Every guitar stays in a hardshell case with a little sponge/baggie humidifier. I fix too many guitars with cracked tops to subject mine to the abuse of leaving them out.
If you have a high qualitity HVAC with closed loop humidity control then please feel free to leave them out. The owner of the music store l deal with says theirs goes thru 20 gallons of water a day
All my guitars are in their cases in a room with a room humidifier running in the Winter. The acoustics and mandolin also have an in case humidifier in winter.
Two on the wall and two in rotation on stands in the studio.
Just added a mandolin stand.
Mine are in their hard cases with the baggie sponges or those d'addario bags that absorb moisture, they work okay. I don’t have ac or anything and too much humidity in the summer is more of a problem for me than the dry winters.
The down side of having everything away in their cases is that I have to get them out each time I wanna play. When guitars are just laying out I will pick them up more.
Out - on a simple cradle stand, between my chair and the coffee-pot in the kitchen - acoustic
