Is it OK to hang a guitar on the wall?
The answer is no. It’s generally accepted as a safe way to hang a guitar because the downward exertion from the weight of the guitar isn’t nearly as strong as the pull of the strings in the opposite direction. You may need to run a humidifier in the room with your guitar during the winter when the heat is on.
How do you hang a guitar on the wall without drilling?
Try using a ceiling & floor bracket system along with a 2′ x 4′ timber post. The bracket is secured against the ceiling and floor so there is no wall damage. Once the bracket system is in place, screw your guitar hanger onto the timber post.
Can you hang a guitar on plasterboard?
Re: Hanging Guitars from Cavity/Plasterboard Walls
Plasterboard walls are just fine. You just need to do it right, use the right fittings, and think about what you are doing. With proper fixings you can easily put a number of shelves on a single plasterboard wall.
Is it bad to leave guitar on stand?
As long as the guitar stand is in good shape, with the padding intact and nothing poking out, your guitar won’t have any issues sitting it in for hours while it’s not being played. Ensure your guitar stand padding is in good shape so it doesn’t damage your guitar’s finish.

Should I Untune my guitar after playing?
No, you do not need to detune your guitar or loosen the strings when you’re not playing it. In fact, do not do this as it will most likely cause damage to the neck of the guitar over time. By releasing the string tension on the neck, the wood will bend the other direction.
How much weight can drywall hold?
Exactly how much weight drywall can hold depends on where and how the weight is mounted. A thin nail in hollow drywall will leave even a light picture frame on the floor, but use the right hardware and technique, and your vertical drywall might be able to hold as much as 100 pounds.
Do you need a guitar stand?
You don’t *need* to do it, but having a stand helps reduce risk of damage. In my early days playing guitar I didn’t have stands and occasionally I‘d get nicks on the guitar or other damage from just leaving it lying around, so now I have floor guitar stands or wall mounts for all my guitars.
How do you store a guitar?
How to Best Take Care of Your Guitars—When They’re Not in Your Hands
- Generally speaking, the safest way to store a guitar is in its case—ideally, a good-quality hardshell, as opposed to a gig bag or ill-fitting chipboard case.
- Tripod stands are generally the best option for securely displaying and storing guitars.
