Love the Picasso. Is it the original?
Wow. Looks nice. I need to do the same for my daughter.
When I read that I pictured you hanging your daughter on the wall. Ha! I'm sure that's not what you meant!
That may be my subconscious speaking. It's her wall, but my guitar. Son in Law can't seem to hold on to a guitar. But plays mine all the time.
The real reason that I clicked on this thread is because I have to hang my guitar too.
When I got my strat in January I told my wife I wanted to hang it on the wall of our TV room. She vetoed the idea at the time, but after having to move my guitar for the past six months she surprised me with a wall mount for Father’s Day.
I should get a chance to mount it on Saturday and I’ll post a pic when I do.
It's always a good sign when the wife gives you guitar stuff!! She's a keeper.
How do you mount it securely?Woukd not do to have it fall out!
I used a drill and drywall anchors before putting the screw in.. didn't need to use the anchors for the stud in the wall though
Just remember boys and girls, if you have a '70's Les Paul, make sure you line up your hangers on the studs.
What Band Does Picasso Play for ?
This is why I made my own wooden "extensions" - for the sole purpose of securing every one of them to the top wall frame:
We have plaster walls and this is the only way I can be especially confident that they won't fall while hanging (since it's very difficult to locate studs on a plaster wall)...
Good job, looks great! That Tele looks like an interesting animal, what brand is it?
Very Nice!!! I keep most of mine on the wall in quick reach while in the studio.
Exactly how I mount all of mine.
Those anchors will hold them solid all day long for years. I have both a Jazz Bass and Olic, my 11.5 pound Jackson Dinky, hanging on the same hangers they have been on for the last 7 years and no issues whatsoever. Once they are mounted solid to the drywall with the proper anchors they don't pull out.
are you referring to the one with the mirror pickguard? that's a Schecter Pete Dee Signature
If I was hanging something seriously heavy or of immense value from drywall I would probably use Wingits brand mounts. They're similar to other butterfly type anchors but significantly stronger (up to 600Lbs) and often used for mounting safety bars for bathrooms.
But for most applications like guitars etc. I use more common mounts.
If an 8 pound guitar will pull an anchor out of your sheetrock, you've got a big problem!
It was partially a joke, but FYI my '78 Les Paul weighs 12 lbs.
Nice guitars! I think your level might be out of whack though...
