What can I use if I don’t have a guitar stand?
You really need a case or gig bag to store your guitar when you are not using it, and a stand or wall hanger to hold it when you have it out for playing.
Is it better to store a guitar in a case or on a stand?
Generally speaking, the safest way to store a guitar is in its case—ideally, a good-quality hardshell, as opposed to a gig bag or ill-fitting chipboard case. As obvious as this might seem, if you have multiple guitars, don’t stack them one on top of another in their cases.
Should Guitars be stored flat?
Storing guitars “in the playing position” is normal. Vertical, on end is a slightly better use of space. Flat is sufficient if stacking is done with care to respect weight of one on top of another.
How do you store a guitar for a long time?
Is it OK to hang your guitar on the wall?
The answer is no. It’s generally accepted as a safe way to hang a guitar because the downward exertion from the weight of the guitar isn’t nearly as strong as the pull of the strings in the opposite direction. You may need to run a humidifier in the room with your guitar during the winter when the heat is on.
Is it bad to keep guitar out of case?
Also storing a guitar in its case is probably a good idea, it will make the strings last longer and prevent it from recieving any damages. If it’s not going to be used for a long time, I’d take off the strings, clean it very well, and then restring it.
