I think you will be fine. Do you keep your guitar in the case every time your not using it or do you leave it out?

Grab you one of these and I think youre gonna be fine.

I have 4 guitars hanging on those right now, with 2 more to be installed in the near future. So far, so good.

i have 13 hanging. had them there for 8 years. no worries, they will hold teles and seven strings. i like the String Swing brand, and the prongs can be moved for a fat neck.

make sure you hit a stud. should be eveyr 16" or you could do what i did and ran a pair of 16' 2x12" lumber screwing it to the wall and you can hang anywhere.

i guarantee somebody will argue and say that drywall anchors, but i wound't trust them. i worked construction through highschool and some of my college before i started my masters degree.

i like the metal ones more aesthetically, but i am sure the wood ones are fine as well.

Most stores have their guitars hanging on the wall. I don't think it's any thing bad at all.

I'm mostly with you, and I've got 18 hanging....(We're hopeless, folks like you and I...)

I won't argue, but I use drywall anchors exclusively with nary a problem. I just don't use cheap 'push and hope' anchors.


These will support 40 pounds hanging on them. (I tested them by hanging a 5 gallon bucket of water on my first guitar hanger...they may support more, I don't know)

I have one of these and I worry about whether it will **** with the neck.

Just out of interest, will any guitar I hang on it be fine, including Gibsons? I really only hang my Fenders off it because I worry that it will put pressure on the top of the neck where the nut is.

Compared to the tension that strings place on the neck, the weight of the guitar is truly an insignificant factor.

It will be fine.
