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.
Should Guitars be stored flat?
Storing guitars “in the playing position” is normal. Vertical, on end is a slightly better use of space. Flat is sufficient if stacking is done with care to respect weight of one on top of another.
Is it better to keep a guitar in a case or on a stand?
Unless you’re humidifying your guitar with a case humidifier, or have small kids or pets running around that may knock it over, it’s perfectly fine to leave a guitar on a stand instead of keeping it in a case when you’re not playing it.

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.
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.
Can you hang a violin on the wall?
The Twoset Violin guys and Hilary Hahn don’t recommend this, and say they‘ve never heard or seen a musician who hangs their violin on the wall. It makes it prone to damage and allows it to collect dust. It’s only used by people who want a violin-shaped decoration.
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.
How do I know where the studs are in my wall?
A good starting place is 16 inches from a corner. For better precision, use a tape measure and mark 12 inches, 16 inches, and 24 inches from the corner. Tap the wall at each distance. You’ll hear a solid sound when you tap the part of the wall that is supported by a stud.
