    What do you use to hang or store your guitars?
    I use home depot screw in tool holder hooks $1.98 each. Then into a wood block. And I have a homemade 8 guitar rack
    What are you guys using?

    I dont do anything fancy. I try to use pieces that are otherwise no good for anything else.i drill 2 sizes so the screw has room to taper.

    I have guitars stored in just about every way possible. I have two 5 racks and one 7 rack. All bought used. Normally in a package deal with a guitar, so very little money invested. I have a bunch of floor stands. Three are Hercules brand. They are a bit pricey, but very nice. When I play out, those are the ones I take. And then I have a ton of generic floor stands that I have accumulated by buying a lot of used guitars! LOL. I have five Hercules wall hangers scattered around my man cave. Again, they are a bit pricey, but I love their product. And lastly, I have a closet full of guitars in cases. These are ones I don’t play much, or need work.

    I walked around my room and took some pictures of how my stuff is stored tonight.

    What "gauge" strings do you use on that second "guitar" from the left? ;)

    I use a dozen String Swings, need at least a dozen more (and more wall space). I should have done the tool holder thing like you did. Would have saved me a bundle.

    Also have a couple of Fender tweed case racks, one for seven and one for three. But they're stored down in the basement. No room to set them up.

    Used to be like this, but they are all on the shelves now, with each shelf section holding a minimum 4 guitars stacked horizontal in cases on top of each other.

    In not a fan of those $1.69 Home Depot hooks, When one of your guitars fall out you won’t be a fan anymore either. $10-$20 is way cheaper than a broken neck

    I also like the Hercules racks and the wall hangers are from Amazon and are Ohuhu brand. I keep my cases, and other stuff I don't use regularly in my crawl space.

    I have 25+ Hercules hangers in my apartment, a huge line of hard cases, and soft cases stuffed in nooks.

    I'd say you have a guitar addiction problem.......and a good credit score!

    You would be correct on both accounts but these are the result of horse trading and hustling CL, FBMP, Offer Up, etc. Only a few were bought new. I guess this manifestation of my addiction beats slamming Crystal Meth and going to jail for robbing people, but I would not know anything about that..... ;)

    I have one triple hanging stand, and 7 single stands; so ten of my 16 guitars are in stands, and the other six are in hardshell cases.

    Everything hung on home made apparatus. Most made from old windsurfing carbon booms.

    I want something like they use at guitar center. The angle allows alot more guitars in a smaller area
