    Default Best guitar wall hangers?

    My wife and I will be getting a new puppy soon and I need to get a few guitars off the floor.

    Will need to hang 1 Jazz, 1 tele, 1 classical, and 1 steel string acoustic.

    Will be hanging on drywall (circa 1930 apartment).

    Any suggestions would be appreciated; have never used these.

    Thanks.

    I use these

    Guitar Wall Mount Hanger 2-Pack, Ohuhu Guitar Hanger Wall Hook Holder Stand for Bass Electric Acoustic Guitar Ukulele https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019ONS4TC..._Nmk3CbXS7E6ZF

    They come with drywall anchors

    I wouldn't trust the drywall itself to hang a guitar

    I would try to find a stud

    Or get a one by six long enough to span several studs

    Mount it to the studs then hangers to the one by

    Stain the wood to match or contrast

    Mine are mounted 18 inches down from the ceiling
    Which I find clears the chairs and such



    This is an old photo but the hangers are the same

    Thanks, ehdwuld. Yes--I'll locate the stud. The heaviest one (the bass) will go on a wall where there's already a massive mirror hanging, so that'll help me find it.

    With a place that old you sure its drywall and not plaster? Definitely use an anchor or as youve done, find a stud, esp if the walls are plaster

    You're right--it's likely plaster now that I think about it. I have home theater speakers mounted plus that really heavy mirror I mentioned, so I'm sure it can be done. Thanks.

    My old house had plaster walls throughout most of the house and made it very hard to hang amything, even pictures. Had to predrill any hole before I drove a nail or the plaster would crumble around the nail as I drove it in.

    I use the Off the Wall hangers. They look cool, too. Finding a stud is the best thing, anchors 2nd best.

    With the Hercules mounts, Floyd Rose nuts can be cumbersome. From my experience.

    Thanks, Mincer. I'll have a look. The plaster walls are the reason I've resisted doing this for years. but now I'll have to figure it out.

    If you cant find a stud to attach the hanger, use toggle bolts instead of the anchor. That may help.

    I use string swing it supports your guitar by the body and the neck. Instead of just the headstock.

    Thanks--looks good, but I definitely don't have the real estate to accommodate handing them that way.

    I don’t believe in these unless it’s a guitar I vaguely care about

    Case or gig bag please

    This has always been my opinion as well, but in this case it might not be avoidable.

    Hercules Hangers

    I have question regarding these. Amazon has two versions.

    Hercules Guitar Tools (GSP38WBPLUS)

    https://smile.amazon.com/Hercules-GS...ruments&sr=1-1

    and

    Hercules GSP38WB Mountable Acoustic Guitar Wall Hanger with Wood Base and Auto Grip System

    https://smile.amazon.com/Hercules-GS...ruments&sr=1-2

    Is there any real difference between these two?

    I've got very limited wall space and with one hanger I'd like to be able to usually hang a Tele but at times a classical acoustic.

    Will either of these be OK for both?

    I got over my fear of hanging these on plaster: This past weekend I hung a flatscreen TV using anchors and it went very well. That wall isn't like some of the walls in this place where the plaster crumbles.
