I just bought the shorter Hercules:It needs to come out further from the wall for the acoustics.
Rubber fuel hose (FUEL SAFE) will not react to nitro. Surgical Tubing will.I made my own.
Scrap oak railing cut to length
Big screw hooks that you buy for garage tools - remove the plastic
Replace plastic with surgical tubing
$25 or so investment for 8 hangers
One thing I do is put up a backer to span over a few studs... usually 3/4 thick. Then I ancor my hangers right to that. Then you can have whatever spacing you need.NOTE - I used a thicker, stronger wall anchor for mounting into drywall as the wall anchors that came with the package seemed kind of flabby. It would be ideal to mount directly into the wall stud... but I'm a moron and missed the stud by 2".
Otherwise, the device seems to be very reliable and sturdy.
maybe that the acoustic weighs less? I dunno.My Larrivee acoustic is sprayed in nitro. It's been hanging in my surgical tubed guitar tree for 3 years and there is no blemish on the neck. I'd never put my Flying V in there for more than a minute, though. What's with Gibson's finish?
