    I use the Top Stage ones they sell on Amazon, about $14 for a 3-pack. Sanded and stained these to match the board.

    Those look nice! But I’m a sucker for the auto lock on the Hercules :rolleyes:

    I took your suggestion on the String Swing hangers. Arrived quickly, installed easily. I’m ordering more today!

    String Swing for me. I also use them for other instruments, like mandolins, banjos, ukuleles, etc. I like having instruments out, it makes we want to play them as I walk past, and I dunno whether it is placebo effect, but for acoustic instruments they seem to be more "alive" when left out - casing them "puts them to sleep", as it were.

    I need a couple more hangers, due to recent procurements, but I am honestly running out of wall space. I may need to start casing some of the low-use / special edition instruments, unless I expand wall-use to yet another room or hallway...

    (What I really need is Markie's basement, but here in Florida, an 8 foot basement gives you 6 feet of water table...)

    Hercules, mostly because they close around the neck when I put the weight of the guitar on them so they can't get knocked off. They all hang high in a hallway...

    +1 for that first Presley album! Is that the real deal?

    I use Hercules, but still do the old “cut off” the top of an old sock (clean of course) and thread it over the area where the neck touches the hanger to prevent any lacquer damage.

    But since the water leak and redecoration they haven’t gone up and I’m adhering to the “Schefman” technique of casing when not in use.

    Very nice! I have that on my list, but haven't come across a copy in the right condition in the right price range...

    It’s a challenge. This was far from perfect, has a name om the back, but was in good physical shape with clean vinyl, so it was perfect for wall hanging!

    Yeah, I dig it. Everything I find is either terrible vinyl in a decent sleeve, or a decent sleeve w/scratched vinyl...
