I have a devil may care attitude about storing mine...
stacked like cordwood in a trailer
I need a couple more racks......
This is the most space efficient, but goes against all traditional and professional advice not to store them flat. I'll just let it go at that, I'm not going to debate this.
A few of those cases have 35 to 40 year old gutiars in them - never an issue.
The quality of the case - neck support, and the environment of the room are immensely more important. The vast majority of gutiars having damage over long term storage are humidity and temp changes.
I used to go to a lot of church flea markets and rummage sales back in the 70s / 80s - You'd cry seeing the amazing pieces that were destroyed by being put in an attic or basement.
Here is how I store mine:
This ^^^^^^ But failing to have such a piece of equipment like that, flat or on its side is fine.
First I fill all empty spaces between the guitar and case with microfiber covered inflatable air bags filled with nitrogen gas. Then I suspend the case from a 4x12 Brazilian rosewood beam using oxygen free Kevlar cables attached to heat treated aircraft grade titanium hooks. They are raised and lowered using computer controlled precision electronic winches with hand wound motors. This is of course all contained in a hermetically sealed micro-climate with precisely controlled temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and air quality. The hermetically sealed chamber is enclosed in a double walled triple reinforced earthquake, flood, and fire proof high security underground vault with advanced retinal scanners and 2048 bit military encryption
I choose electronic dry cabinet, each one can be used for 2 acoustic or 4 electronic guitars:
If I had that many, that is how I'd do it.
I keep mine in their cases, sitting on the case hinge edge.
Mine are all kept in their cases, stored vertically, in closets with no room for falls, and with motion detectors monitoring for unexpected visitors.
I was robbed of several guitars a short while back and don't want to go through that again.
By the way, some of my instruments have been kept like that for over 30 years with no ill effects.
I've read that it is best to avoid resting on exterior facing walls.
Especially on the outside
Found this on internet...
I think any other position is OK.. To be honest I think even this position above is OK !!
I keep my guitars up on their sides most of time... rarely on their back... as below:
My question is, if they are on their back, is it OK to put multiple guitar above each other?
It needs a sticker on it saying "Please don't steal"
Define multiple. Personally I'd not make it more than 4.
Either on the wall hangers or upright in cases.
