How to Build a Multiple Guitar Rack

Here are some pics of a homemade guitar rack I just built. It is honestly the easiest thing in the world to build. It holds 8 guitars. Materials cost me $39 vs. almost $80 to buy a new one.

Message me if you are interested and I can explain how I did it and what supplies you will need.

Haha. Excellent. I was just about to ask on another thread how you went about doing it.

I worry about the material used on the stand effecting the finish of the guitar over prolonged time. Also, any one who does not use a home humidification system would do better to keep there acoustic's cased. With some type of case humidifier. Thanks for the pics, a clever use of what looks like pvc.

Yes, it is PVC. What I have read online is that the PVC insulation foam is safe for everything except the Nitro Finishes.

I guess if you have a nitro finish you could glue some cheap yet soft carpet to it. You could also use felt material as well. Excellent use of PVC pipe too BTW. I was thinking of doing a 3 guitar one out of plywood and 2x4s but yours is much easier. Thanks.

I can't wait to build one myself. Looks really easy but effective. Great post.

How convenient. Much better than stacking them all in the closet.

I just used a piece of old sheet and some old socks

Here's mine, built completely from scrap wood and a carpet remnant from a guy at church who installs carpet for a living. Since these were taken, I have added leather straps with L-shaped pin screws that will keep the guitars in place unless "unlatched." I don't have to worry about nitro finishes with this one.

Here's mine. A wall rack for my son's room. Built from scraps from a remodeling project. An 8' 2x4 with a piece of baseboard glued/nailed to it. Utility hooks from big lots for $1/20 each. Screwed to wall studs with long gray drywall screws. Holds4 guitars. Would hold 5 had I bought enough hooks and can't find them locally right now.

Nice ideas for the other racks, though. May have to build something like that soon.

No problem,

Keep in mind that this in not very time consuming (only took me about two hours), but it can get frustrating so, measure twice and cut once.

I actually really like this rack. I'm in need of a rack (seeing as I have 4 guitars, 1 bass, another guitar on the way tonight for my eldest daughter's 5th birthday present, and a guitar that my friend left over here) and I only own 3 guitar stands. My living room is starting to look like Guitar Center. Any chance you could diagram your build with measurements and supplies used? I'd like to build one this week.
