I have mine hanging as well. In apartments I find getting things off the floor and onto walls makes it seem like you have so much more space. I didn't think mine had the integrity to hold either, but it has been there for a long time now with no problems. I put dowels in to strengthen.

PSG, thanks for the idea. I'll see how the room turns out and might use that idea. I need to accommodate a filing cabinet and two large bookcases so I'll see what sort of wall space I end up with.

I have something like this: http://www.amazon.com/XCG4-Tubular-Velveteen-Padding-Security/dp/B0006NDF8A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377715108&sr=8-1&keywords=guitar+stand
Might not be that exact model, but it looks pretty similar. I got it for free from my linear algebra professor when she was moving.

Its never dropped my guitar...which has been sitting on it for most of 5-6 years.

I've owned this style before. It is a typical 80's style. I replaced all of those with this style guitar stand. There is no neck support to catch when grabbing the instrument. They also fold to a more compact size.

You have to be careful with some of the rubber and such that they use on those stands and hooks. It is best to put a cloth between the guitar and the stands because it tarnishes nitro finishes pretty quickly.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




I do occasionally have the strap (I keep an acoustic on it, so the strap is tied to the headstock) catch on the top of the stand when I pick it up

I played a Dumble today. Whoa. (And I didn't realize that a guy at the store filmed my crappy playing)

Lark Street Music in NJ is a superb store, if anyone has the chance to go. I'm probably going to buy that 355.

Okay, studio is still very much in the creation phase. Scooped one of the night stands from a guest room to sit my amp on, still have no guitar stand, so basically just have a bit of space hollowed out and making do. If I have things set up to suit me by January I'll be both surprised and happy.





My Kaossilator 2 which is plugged into the amp and playing drum accompany for me.

I used to have a flametop Epi LP. Really nice guitar for the price.

Might be buying an American Deluxe Strat tomorrow if I play my cards right.

Been noticing many folks play the Fender Jaguar for ambient music. Is there a technical reason for this or is it just because they can be had for (relatively) cheap?
