That’s a good idea. Nice.

Great way to keep them safe and at the ready.

It looks like you solved your problem and got an attractive way to display your guitars.

I like that a lot mrtrim. Wall space is a great problem for us though! What you say about having the instrument to hand makes a massive difference. Just waiting for my wife when she says: “I’ll be ready in a minute” means I can pick up the guitar for a quick pluck!

I need to make one of those. I don’t trip over my instruments but that looks pretty cool. I see you are displaying a rebel flag. Where are you from? I’m in Mobile Al.

Never mind, I look at your home page on Lumber Jocks and saw where you are from. I’ve had too many drinks…

Great way to display your instruments. At the ready is good for playing more often. At least for the northern folks remember the humidifiers. Use ‘em whenever you are in heating season.

morninwood heres a view of the top . i cut it back on 10 degrees and line the neck rest with felt . the 10 degree back cut will make your instrument want to move toward the wall if bumped into . they will hold banjos , dobros , mandolins as well . they are not so good with guitars with the sharkfin headstocks . have fun !
