Guitar rack

So I have so little space, I basically live in an old folks home, when you get old apparently you only need a tv and a mug. So I found this on Amazon it holds 8 guitars to be fair it wasn’t a quick fit as there are in fact 40 yes 40 holes to be drilled, so not a job that is done near midnight if you have neighbours.
However I am really chuffed i haven’t hung 8 as I wanted a bit of space for the deck and cables plus you always need one or two down for playing.
I have small amps in a kinsman busker amp for acoustic and a Mighty Space for Electric this combined with A multi fx pedal board and an Izotope spire for recording all fits on this wall Brilliant hope this inspires someone


Oh wow, that’s a nice collection, Mark. Great idea to put them on a rack to win back some free space (for even more guitars :grin:) :+1:.

It’s interesting. I have kept my guitars on stands for ever. I just got back from my local guitar shop. I took my favorite acoustic in for a bit of adjusting. The tech took one look at and showed me that the whole top was starting to bow. He said this was because I was storing my guitar on a rack instead of a case. He said I should always keep my guitar in a case with a humidifier. The humidifier is nothing more that a wet sponge in a plastic holder.

Mark you have a nice rack.



You mean, to acquire the next guitar? Thinking about it :thinking: :grin::grin:

All this means is you live in a dry area. I humidify my house and keep all my guitars on wall hangers and stands and have no problem with any of them. My oldest guitar is 77 years old.

Without causing offence I was always led to believe that cased instruments don’t get played and to be honest I have no space for them, I do try and rotate my guitars but I hope that the new blues course is too expensive for me otherwise I’ll need a 335 :joy:

Nice collection Mark ! :slight_smile:

I did some quick measurements of your room and you could fit another 9 guitars on a stand. Your 335 and 8 other new friends :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Thank me later :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Also, if needed, my neighbor have tried some ideas.

Love it :joy:

That guitar rack looks like a great way to store your guitars in a real small space Mark. Thanks for sharing a real good way to store many guitars, and have them be real out of the way.
As for guitars that are in their cases not being played.
I still store in a case for the 3 that I use (I got 5, the two I don’t use are in a case too).
One of them gets played everyday (short of the 2 I don’t play often)… :wink:

As for living in a dry area, I live in South Florida. The humidity gets so thick you can cut it with a knife. I use very heavy duty strings because I love the big sound. I’m guessing that the strings are contributing to my bowed top. I also hate having to case my guitar. I play both my acoustic and electric every day.

Do you run your air conditioner for long period of time? This will dry out the air. The only way to know for sure is to get a hygrometer to measure the RH of the air inside your home.
