    I have three acoustics and a Strat (plus a ukulele) hanging on the wall. It keeps them out of the way. But the two Teles live on floor stands for exactly the reason mentioned. That's a tuner clipped to the headstock of the sunburst Tele.

    Whatever's handy at the time. I have one hanger that gets cycled through. No stands at this time. Basically I pull it in and out of the case.

    In my personal experience, on stage , in my case always was a small area, that's the most dangerous place. My Strat was knocked off a stand, fell front first.

    I've actually found this to be the best way to store my guitars.

    Yep, definitely a problem. Keep guitars on stage, often the size of a handkerchief, to a minimum Usually electric plus b/u and acoustic. Just try and out a dual Hercules accessible but not vulnerable. Sometimes there’s a space just off stage.

    Either, as long as it is an authentic Hercules brand product.

    Ya, stage situation, I think the best way to do is the briefcase that opens into a stand.

    If you have the floor space on or back stage.
    Mick Ralphs used a rig like that at the Hollywood House of Blues and his tech had it set up on the stairs leading to Stage Left using milk crates to support the end over lower steps.

    I have a friend that uses one of them when he gigs. His band will play so many different genres in a night he will normally take 6 or 7 guitars to a gig to play then all.

    This is my Tele hanging from a Hercules wall hanger. The Tele fits in between the two support arms perfectly. Theres no way it can rest on the 6 string tuner. The cradle pivots so it fits the shape of ever headstock so it hangs straight. Didn’t someone here post that the Hecules hanger didn’t work on a Tele. I tried to make it fall through but it’s to narrow. This one might be a newer model, it works just fine.

    Years ago when I lived in Cleveland- upper front half of an 1850's house in a gentrifying neighborhood- I kept 3 mine on wall hangers.

    Then I realized anyone walking or driving by could look up and see them, not to mention anyone who came over, so I put them back in the cases and under the bed.

    Now I live in a much safer area and only have one A frame stand.
