Anyone know if it is fine if I use a hardshell case as a stand for my new Ibanez S570DXQM ( excellent guitar by the way) or this just a bad idea because there is some possibility that the neck could warp, or should I just not worry at all. I haven't been able to get a stand yet and this is my only alternative for a while.

Are you talking about leaning it on the case standing up? Why not just keep it in the case when you're not playing it?


No, I mean keep it inside the case. It does sound like something that would work fine and all and I have seen many people do this with even the most vintage of guitars but I am in a very dry environment and I just changed the strings, truss rod, bridge height and every other little thing that I don't feel like naming off, and these adjustments can change overnight, as we have all learned the hard way. And I have already dealt with warping and truss rod issues with other guitars. I'm just worried that this can this screw with the neck and ruin this guitar that I just spent quite a bit (all of my) money on.

um..... puttin it in the case is probaby the safest way of storage.

Your talking about leaning the case upright and leaving it open aren't you? I wouldn't do that, always close your case and latch it. I can not remember how many people I have seen break head stocks off by not latching a case.

a 10$ humidifier would be a good investment.

buy the ones that sit inside your case, and keep the guitar in its case when not in use.

You neck is already under at least 100 pounds of pressure from your guitar strings, leaning the neck against something isn't going to warp the neck.
