Heyy,

I've got to do some research for a GCSE Design Technology project I'm doing on guitar stands!

I need some opinions from all sorts of guitarists ...

Here's basically what I need to know ...

- How many guitars do you own and and how many electric and how many acoustic? (Electro acoustic is classed as acoustic, bass is classed as electric)

- How do you store your guitars?

- Do you have any problems with space or storage? Do they take up a lot of room space?

- Would you rather have a wall stand or floor stand?

- Will you buy more guitars?


Yeah, fill it out .. It'll help my project a huge amount!

I'm thinking about making a wall stand in the shape of a guitar with lights ect.


Cheers!

3 electrics, 1 acoustic, 1 bass. All have hardshell cases, but I usually leave them in floor stands while I'm home for easy access, But I store them in their cases in my closet for longer periods of time. I prefer floor stands, and hell yes I plan on buying more guitars, but not in the immediate future.
I simply cannot take this god-awful place anymore. Goodbye to all the good people here. The rest can fuck off.

bass is a guitar
besides it's called ultimate-guitar so you know, just go with it


I have 1 electric
I keep it with me at all times, except the shower, it has some crazy ass rules about me seeing it naked
no issues with storage.
I'd rather have a floor stand.

I know that but try telling that to a bassist, they'll pound you alltogether screaming it's an entirely different instrument. They have a point, and thus I'd try and avoid such scenes.

1 electric, 1 accoustic. soft cases/floor stand. rather a wall stand. they do take up a bit of space since i have a small bedroom. yes, i'll prolly buy more guitars when i get older...or enough money...whichever comes first.

- How many guitars do you own and and how many electric and how many acoustic? (Electro acoustic is classed as acoustic, bass is classed as electric)


I myself have a bass, an electric and a acoustic, so I'll guess that will count as two electrics and one acoustic.
However, if you count all guitars (and basses) in my family we'll land on three acoustics and five electrics.


- How do you store your guitars?


I mostly have them standing leaning at an amp or a table


- Do you have any problems with space or storage? Do they take up a lot of room space?


Can't say they do that...

- Would you rather have a wall stand or floor stand?

a floor stand

- Will you buy more guitars?


probably
