Hello All,

Since our last kids have either moved out on their own or are off to college, I am converting a spare bedroom into my own den/office/music/guitar/sanctuary room. I want to hang my guitars on one wall and was considering using these hangers. They are very reasonably priced and I think it will look pretty cool. (my wife is not yet fully convinced.)

Anybody use these? Should I be concerned about mounting them directly in sheetrock walls? Any danger of them falling? Any info or experiences appreciated.


ps -And before you remind me, yes I know that they all come back, but they cant have my guitar room!!!!!

I have over 20 of these on the wall in my "guitar room." Some are mounted in studs and some are mounted directly in the sheetrock. I have had some of them up over a year and have not had any problem with them coming loose or falling. They come with a pretty good sheetrock anchor. The heaviest guitar I have hanging is a Gibson Firebird VII, which I am sure tops 10 pounds and it is solid as a rock in the string swing. I will have no hesitation hanging my D-10BZ in one when I get it on Monday, in fact, I even have the hanger picked out, right next to my
L-03MTE.

Good luck with convincing your wife, my room is the basement, so I had less of an issue convincing.

One other thing, if your guitars are going to be hanging on the wall, they will be more susceptible to humidity and dryness. I use a dehumidifier all summer in my room, and we have an Aprilaire humidifier on our furnace for the winter months.

I have most of my guitars up on wall hangers in my "studio". The heaviest is my RIC 4003FG bass and there are no problems at all. I only have one hanger that is in a wall anchor in drywall and I ensure I don't hang my bass on that one. (My RIC 360/12FG is on the opposite wall)

I have all mine mounted to the studs.  Be sure and cover the rubber 'fingers' that hold the headstock with some sort of inert substance.  Cotton works best for me.  I made little booties with a sewing machine.
