I have a 7 guitar multi stand. I have them sitting at an angle with the side neck resting against the back bar of the mesh and the front of the neck supported by the peg in front of each guitar. I notice that most people have them sitting with the back of the neck supported by the peg behind the guitar. Which is best? Does it matter? or is it preference? I see both ways done. But I am OCD about taking care of my guitars.

i always rest guitars against the back of the neck.

unless it's a tele of course, then just toss it close to the amp.

with difficulty, normally. any of those pointy guitars you normally need a hercules stand or similar which holds them by the headstock.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

They are hard to stand up indeed.

Wall hangers work, but they're not portable. Hercules stands work, but they're very expensive.

I myself own an explorer-style guitar and I managed to get around the problem, using a regular guitar stand like this:



Just by removing the left leg that holds the guitar body on the stand, and drilling new holes lower down the frame, and putting the leg in those new holes, you can make the guitar fit on the stand. You do need an electric drill though.

But those kinds of stands are WAY cheaper and more portable than the Hercules ones, and they work just as well when you modify them to fit your guitar.

I always rest them on the neck, resting them on the strings always looked kinda weird to me I guess. Doubt it makes any difference for the guitar though, just soothes my OCD.

On a stand face forward.

However, I advice to put it on the strings when leaning it into something else (hard surface). Otherwise you mite end up with little dents in the neck.
