    Lots of space between those guitars. Better go buy some more.

    Looks really great, will you be hanging them all year round? will the necks shrink expand the wood crack etc?
    As I would like to do this myself but am worried in case these things happen, maybe you have a lot more experience than I

    I'd actually love advise on that. I live in Toronto, it's extremely dry right now. Should I have a humifier going or just keep them in the cases?

    I have a 2009 Standard that has been hanging by its neck in my bedroom since 2010. Alongside of it are a 1998 Fender P Bass Deluxe that's been hanging there since 2008 and a Charvel bass that has been there since 2009. Any of the three only come down for practice and only the Standard and the P Bass have seen the inside of their cases in the past eight to ten years when they get taken to play out.

    The Standard is my Number 1, and I can't see any ill effects from its being gallows'ed.

    I like 'em hung. I have a smallish room about 180 sq ft, and I keep a small humidifier, I run it for a few hours during the night. I keep it at about 40%.

    Those look great guys. I have the Al Bundy Agreementâ„¢ with Mrs. Krashpad, and until the kids move out and a room possibly opens up, that means she has run of the house, while I get the garage.

    Given that the garage is not air conditioned, none of the guitars are stored out there. I used to keep them cased and standing along a wall, although Mrs. Krashpad was (rightly) not pleased with how messy that looked. (This is not even all of them.)

    [​IMG]

    We repainted the bedroom where those guitars had been, which resulted in a huge mess. This stack was only temporary, I know it's not good for them to be like this long. (Again, not all in pic.)

    [​IMG]

    So now they're mostly uder the bed in the repainted bedroom:

    But they make it out to the garage for practices.

    Where they do temporarily reside in a rack (see, eventually, I got round to being on point!):

    That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
