Totally agree with this. For me, hanging guitars look cool, but they are an accident waiting to happen or they appear as an open invitation for someone to touch. No bueno.I’m an “in the case” guy when not playing them for this very reason. It’s just an accident waiting to happen. Either some catastrophic failure like this happens or someone/something knocks them down. Luckily for me I learned early on with cheap guitars on stands (ie, being knocked over) and once it got my first Gibson vowed never to leave one on a stand or wall hanger.
We are turning our basement into a living space (in-home Irish pub, TV room, guitar room) and my wife said, “We should hang your guitars on the wall, they’d look great.” To which I replied, “Nope, not gonna happen!”
OP, sorry your guitar fell. Clearly, your wall hanger installation needs to be reevaluated. In the meantime, take your guitar to a luthier and have it fixed.
