    Nice job and one of my favorite paintings. I had a guy come in and hang mine, I'm no good with hand tools.

    Can't be the original, the original is locked up in my safe downstairs.

    Looks good. Around here I couldn’t thing of hanging up my acoustics...well there is one that I might think of hanging up. But none of my good acoustics.

    Reminds me of living in Seoul. Used to have street vendors come up to me and try to sell “...Genuine imitation Rolex...”. Well, except that Rolex was pronounced “Rolex-eee”. They also sold real imitation silk clothing....

    I hung mine up the same day I got my hangers. Took about 15 mins total and got them off the floor and no longer leaning against a wall.

    I like the Hercules Auto Grip hangers, personally.

    I screwed mine straight into the studs with no anchors. An 8 lb guitar cant pull a 2 inch screw out of a wooden stud. Not happening. Not sure why so many people think the anchors that come with hangers are such junk, as well. You don't need anchors that are rated to 80 lbs for a 8 lb guitar. Hell, I doubt a guitar could pull 2 screws out of the drywall(as long as it's not cheap, chinese crap that crumbles), much less a stud.

    Tbh, I'm pretty sure I missed the stud on my 2nd hanger and it's been up for weeks if not months and it's perfectly fine.

    For hanging on areas between studding you can buy a metal butterfly type fixing....you push it through the drilled hole and it opens up on the back of the plasterboard as you tighten the screw spanning roughly 3 inches....secure enough for a guitar....once in they won't come out..if you decide to move stuff you either have to tighten the screw all the way up and leave it in or drive it through the board and fill the hole.!!!

    Free tip...DON'T use this type on the shelves in your wife's sewing room..When she decides they need moving you will be busy with the polyfilla and touch up paint..been there etc etc.;)
