Guitar Storage/Display in The Gibson Lounge Posted September 16, 2012 · Report reply I hang mine. But I have a dust issue. So I also take outdoor trash bags and make clear plastic dust covers for them. Dust is the enemy. Doesn't take too long for guitars left out in even mildly dusty rooms to end up with crackelly pots and sometimes even a bit of neck stickiness. On the other hand, displayed guitars get played more. And newer guitars with nitro finishes that are still curing seem to dry out faster when not stored in the case. Also, I just love looking at them.
