Best Electric Guitar Stands & Hangers in 2020



String Swing CC01K-BW Guitar Hanger and Guitar Wall Mount Bracket Holder for Acoustic and Electric Guitars Black Walnut Review:


I have been fortunate to build a small, but decent collection of acoustic and electric guitars in a room dedicated to music. All 15 of my guitars are hanging on the walls and in the 15 years I've been using String Swings I've never had a problem with them. They hold every guitar, regardless of neck shape or style. Since they swivel, my Fender necks are just as secure as my Gibson necks. The depth is adjustable, so they will account for the difference between acoustic guitars and solid body electrics. While I never had a problem with the rubber grip on the hangers marring the finish of my Nitro coated guitars, I didn't want to take a chance, so I use self-adhesive sheets of felt and wrap the posts with felt to further protect the guitar's finish. I try and screw them into studs to support the weight, and where I can't do it, I hang some of my lighter guitars, but the anchors that come with the hangers are strong and secure... although I sprung a couple bucks and bought similar screw-in anchors; but made out of metal - just that added bit of security to make sure nothing happens. I also strongly recommend (as others have done) that you run a humidifier in the room housing your guitars (40-50% humidity is perfect). I recommend the Honeywell Honeywell HCM-6009 QuietCare 9-Gallon Output Console Humidifier with Air Washing Technology

Guitar Wall Mount Hanger 6 Pack, Guitar Hanger Wall Hook Holder Stand Black Display with Screws - Easy To Install - Fits All Size Guitars, Bass, Mandolin, Banjo, Ukulele Review:


I like how the hooks can turn so they can fit any width guitar arm, and the soft rubber or whatever it is so it won’t hurt my guitar in any way. The only think I disliked was the drywall fasteners are junk. They need to be replaced with better ones cause right now I had to put my heavy electric guitar on the side of a bookshelf because there was too much give when I tried to hang it on the spot on the wall. I’m too afraid it will give out one night so I put the light beginners guitar on the wall instead.



Guitar Wall Mount Hanger 4-Pack, Ohuhu Guitar Hanger Wall Hook Holder Stand for Bass Electric Acoustic Guitar Ukulele Review:


All I had to do was find a spot on the wall where I wanted to hang each of my guitars. Then I used my drill and the sheet-rock screws that came with each block and screwed them into the wall. Next, I hand screwed in the neck holder, hung one of my guitars and adjusted the rubber rings to get a good fit. I hung three guitars next to my son's bed in his old bedroom so I can lie with my back up against some cushions against the wall and pick my electric guitar, acoustic guitar, or my classical guitar off the wall to play without getting up. I hung an old guitar that I don't play much on the opposite wall. Looks good and practical. Frees floor space. Pretty cool! I like it!



Rok-It Standard Stand for Acoustic, Electric, or Bass Guitars; (RI-GTRSTD-1) Review:


I think that as a cheap alternative, it's great. To be fair, there are some downsides to ordering this kind of thing. Mine had some foam where the neck sits ripped off. It wasn't the whole thing, maybe a ¼in big, but if that's a turn off for you, then consider that. It also had minor scratches on the metal itself, but the paint was still there. Overall, if you only care about the parts interacting with the guitar being protected, then this is a 5/5. The shipping was sketchy tho



String Swing 3 pack CC01K-BW Hardwood Home and Studio Guitar Keeper - Black Walnut Acoustic Electric Guitar Hanger Review:


Excellent build while including the sturdier drywall anchors which makes them easily hold a heavier instrument into the drywall. I found no need to find a stud since the drywall anchors combined with the screws provided was extremely secure, in my opinion, to hang an instrument upto 10-12 pounds. All my guitars much less. The holder itself is the perfect width and made with surgical style rubber that is non marring for all finishes. Installation was literally 1-2 minutes with a cordless drill using Phillips bit. Very pleased with looks of the walnut. Will definitely get more as my collection grows.



RockJam Folding Stand for Acoustic, Classic, and Electric Guitars Review:


Recently, while shopping at a Goodwill 50% off sale, I found a Randall guitar amp for $20.00 which means I got it for $10.00.
That buy made me pull the Yamaha electric guitar I bought sometime back (also from Goodwill, $40.00) out of the middle room and get it ready for practice lessons. Anywayyyy, I decided I'd treat it to a better position than up against the wall and found this guitar stand with HIGH ratings for $10.00.
I next to NEVER pay attention to naysayers who because of their bad experience with a product will say "DON'T BUY THIS" because their product was broke, missing, in a broken box, or arrived late. I tend to consider the higher numbers who did not experience the trauma of having to return an item or ask for a refund which is how those situations, in Most cases, are resolved.
If you want perfection, you'll have to wait till you get to heaven...probably.

This is a Great Guitar Stand, solid, well constructed, Not flimsy, and Well Worth the $10.00 I paid for it.
Did I mention it was delivered in just a couple days?
Five Star Experience all the way around!!!



ChromaCast CC-MINIGS Universal Folding Guitar Stand with Secure Lock Review:


This light and sturdy stand has all the problems that other reviewers have complained about, but I was able to implement fixes and make these work. As other reviewers have reported, the foam rubber pads that support the back of the guitar did mess up the finish on several of my guitars. Fortunately, I was able to repair the finish issues with "Virtuoso Premium Instrument Polish & Cleaner Combo" which is available on Amazon. (I only needed the cleaner.) I was even able to clean up my nitrocellulose-finish guitar.

I also implemented two fixes to the stands that so far have prevented damage from occurring. The first fix is to cut the end off of a cotton sock and slip the sock over the support pad on the stand (see photo). The other fix is to attach a piece of cork tile to the support pad with double-stick foam mounting tape (see photo). I like the cork fix best. The cork tile also helps the stand support the guitar more vertically. You can get cork tile at Staples (UPC 18103 23768). I found the foam mounting tape (Scotch Indoor Mounting Tape - UPC 21200 01053) at my grocery store.

I followed these steps to implement the cork tile fix:

1. Peel off the foam rubber pad on the stand's plastic guitar back support piece.
2. Clean the foam adhesive residue off the face of the plastic support piece. I used Goo Gone followed by a rubbing alcohol and water solution.
3. Using regular scissors, cut a strip of cork tile about 9/16" wide and 2 inches long.
4. Cut a two-inch strip of the foam tape.
5. Attach the non-backed side of the foam tape strip to the cork strip.
6. Remove the backing on the foam tape and attach the cork / tape strip to the upper part of the plastic support piece. Press the cork / tape piece on firmly.

With either of these fixes you can enjoy the benefits of these stands without damaging your guitars. You can buy cork-coated stands online but they're typically over $50. I now own six of these stands, and I've implemented the cork tile fix on all of them. I like these stands because they are compact, light and unobtrusive; they're inexpensive and they're easy to transport to a gig.

Chromacast, please replace the foam support pads with cork so we don't have to!



AmazonBasics Folding Tripod Guitar Floor Stand - 19 x 18 x 33 Inches, Black Review:


This stand has a pretty well thought out design. I play a variety of instruments (both electric, and acoustic guitar and bass, dobro, ukulele, 3/4 size 12 string)... For the most part, it can be adjusted to fit all instruments I've thrown in it comfortably (even heavy instruments like my steel guitar, and very small instruments such as the ukulele can be cradled in nicely). It's base can be adjusted to both bring in the legs, and raise the height of the cradle... Which is great for acoustic instruments that plug in through a jack in the strap button on the bottom of the guitar... It means you don't have to unplug your guitar to set it in this stand. I don't know if it's road gig worthy (it breaks down into a highly portable little package, but I'm not 100% sure on the longevity of the metal/plastic parts)... For now though, it's a great addition to my music hangout area and makes me want to play more often because having a guitar at the ready in a stand is always more inviting than being locked up in a guitar case. Like I said in the headline, I've paid more for a guitar stand that I was less happy with than this one... It's a good enough product that I bought 2 of them because it was cheaper than 1 regular stand elsewhere.
