    Jeeze. Dirt and dust doom and gloomers. Hilarious. Polish them with a diaper every night right?

    Hang some, put some on stands, shove em under the bed in cases. Who cares? Just play them.

    Got a couple hangin in the bedroom. One out on a stand by the studio gear.



    Used to have many more before the kids showed up. No one’s mentioned string swing slatwall angled hangers. Those were my choice for years when I had 6-8 out hanging.



    Unfortunately, all of these guitars had to be thrown out at a total loss, because of all the dirt, dust and rust build up, due to having them on the wall and out of the case.

    :rolleyes2:

    B - because you can fit more in the space so room for expansion.

    I mentioned the slatwall hangers because of this. You can hit several studs hanging the slatwall and then you can slide and stagger the hangers wherever you want them.

    I had my first collectible guitar, an Ibanez Artist with the german carve and lots of abalone hanging on the wall. The HVAC guy knocked it down and took a bit of a chunk out of the body. I don't hang guitars that I love any more, except the 27 OO42, which is inside a hardwood cabinet very firmly screwed to the wall. The rest of the guitars that sit out are the riff raff.

    That said, I too use a piece of molding that's screwed to the studs, then the hangars are attached to that. You can still do staggered with a pair of rails, or do diagonal with a diagonal molding... I think I'd go with the Hercules hangars if I were going to put really expensive guitars on the wall.

    I'd say either A or B. Or maybe have more space between them with an LP or framed art between them.

    Yeah, that setup gets my vote if space allows.

    A.
    Unless you need to stagger them to fit more, keep one horizontal line. D is absolutely out of the question.
    Unless your home features a lot of that unpainted wood, just get white hanger panels and/or paint them to match the wall.

    D, by a country mile.

    But if you hang them, you better damned well play them, all, regularly.

    I recently had to throw all these out because they became dusty and unplayable.

    I vote A, but be careful with those Tele headstocks and the String Swing hangers. The Tele stock likes to slide through them.

    A, if you need to squeeze more in you need better options than b or c.

    I had that happen to a 59 Paul, use it or lose it.

    And expose them to the elements? Or can I keep one in its case while I play it?

    Thanks for everyone suggestions including the mention of Hercules hangers. Unfortunately, the Hercules Hangers do interact with nitro so those are not an option.... :(

    I think C looks the best, but it depends on the wall space you have to hang them.

    Wrong thread man. But then you already knew that. :rolleyes:
    So go start a thread about guitars in cases instead of crapping on threads you don't even care about. o_O
