Lately i've just been leaning my guitar up agains things like my wall, amp, etc.
I want to get either a hanger or a stand, but which one's better. I sort of want the hanger, but what if it falls? What are the differences between the two?

with a hanger, it can fall off the wall if you suck at diy.

with a floor stand, the stand can be knocked over.

it really depends. i use a multi-floor stand because i don't really have any walls which don't have blaring sun shining on them all day, and also i suck at diy.

EDIT: wall hanger is probably better if you're good at diy and have a suitable wall.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

i guess hanger, b/c i can probably get my dad to do it, we have a stud finder, and those little screws that when you screw them in, they open behind the wall like wings, to hold it in.
my dad's really good at diy, i'm okay.

EDIT: i've got walls with no sunlight, too.

a hanger can save space in your room but you always want to take a stand with you to gigs or even just jamming with friends. hangers look cool though

stand is cheaper and far easier, but a wall hanger is cool.
go for a stand
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

Hangars bug me because I don't like throwing that much weight onto the headstock of my guitar, I don't actually know if it does anything. But I just prefer to have the leaning stands.

Oh well, probably just some stupid superstition - it's just your preference. Make sure you screw the wall hanger into a stud in the wall!

i'm kind of worried about the weight thing on the headstock, too...idk. i guess a hanger sounds pretty good right now though.

and to cerveza, i've seen hangers cheaper than stands.

use your brain and think for yourself


Yes, TS, you should always use your brain to think. Unlike this ^ guy, who seems to think with his ass.

I would recommend stand, myself. Hangers just seem too precarious to me, they make me nervous (that's just personal preference, though). But seriously, if you put the stand in a corner it's not that likely to get knocked over, especially if you keep it in your room/out of high traffic areas.
