Wall guitar mounts for headless instruments (See inside for suggestions!)

Postby spudmunkey » Thu Jun 07, 2018 1:00 pm

Headless guitar or bass wall mounts. It seems like someone asks here for suggestions about once a month, and on Facewbook someone asks once a week (at least).

So, i figured I'd start a thread where everyone can share their options, and then any time someone searches, they'll find this thread, and it'll be an easy way to share this thread on FB when someone asks there. :)

Here a few I've come across that look like they should work.

Hang 'em high (versions for horizontal and vertical)

RawRock's version:

String Swing:

MonoPrice's version:

"Woodies" invisible guitar hangers:

Does anyone have any experience with these or others?

I have the Woodsies invisible guitar hanger. Did the job of making the guitar look like a display piece. After I bought a big rack for my guitars however, I don't really need to hang them on the wall anymore. I still have the brackets if the urge should strike to feature one of my guitars very prominently on the living room wall and my wife's ok with it.

If I understand correctly, the way these attach and detach, it's not really a one-handed job, is it? I wonder if anyone makes anything that would function the same way, but made of and much much stiffer and stronger plastic, like maybe something reinforced with glass fiber,, that instead of flexing to open up holes would instead just have vertical slots that the strap buttons would slide down in, so you could grab or stove with one careful hand.

Yea you kinda needed to hold the guitar with one hand while the other pulls one of the clips away. Guitarists tend to have two hands though so for most it wouldn't be a problem. :wink:

This one attaches to a typical wall hanger:

Those Woodies holders will not work if one is using Loxx strap locks, since those are little more than a nub on the end of the guitar (but they work very well).
We are entitled to our own, wrong, opinions.

Guitar theorem: G=X+1 where G= guitars one needs, and X = guitars one has.

Do or do not; there is no understand.
