Just curious how you guys feel about storing guitars in there cases while laying on there sides.

 

Would you be comfortable like this long term?

 

I usually keep a few like this under my desk for easy access. Right now it's my three favorite and I'd hate to cause any issues.

 

 

 

Thanks.

Call me crazy. I recommend you hang those puppies on the wall where you can enjoy looking at 'em, as well as grab easy when a tune pops into your head. Then you can put the cases in a closet not to be seen. It shouldn't harm them to sit quietly in their coffins, though.

As long as they are de-tuned and in a high quality case I think you will be fine either way...

Assuming that you have cases that fit the guitars properly, this should not be a problem. I store mine in their cases, but standing upright.

 

I do not like hanging guitars on the wall. They get dusty, and they are more exposed to variations in temperature, humidity, and sunlight than they are in a properly-fitted case with a tight lid. From my seat at my desk at this computer, I can have any of my guitars out and ready to play in 30 seconds or less. No big deal.

If you hang on the wall, make sure it is on an inside wall, not on an outside wall. Because in colder climates the outside wall will have temp. differences, not good for a wood guitar. Same idea for pianos too.

Right! My shack was built in the 1800's and even though I've done some wall insulating (from inside) the temp changes are there. Your hanger should keep the guitar an inch or so away from the surface to boot. And don't forget to make sure your hanger is anchored to a stud behind the sheetrock, especially when hanging your piano.
