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 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.
