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.
How do you keep a guitar when not in use?
If you’re playing your guitar on a regular basis and want to keep it at arm’s reach, using a wall hook or a stand are good ways to go. A wall hook will keep it off the floor while still displaying it to the room through a U-shaped grip that will hold it by the headstock, while a stand supports the guitar by its base.

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 do you install drywall anchors?
How to Use a Drywall Anchor
