P7146511Tuesday I did something pretty cool. I hung my guitar on the wall. This makes life a little easier for me in multiple ways. One I am no longer carrying a 35 to 40 pound instrument up and down the stairs of our house, Secondly I no longer have to go up stairs for my guitar when I want to practice. I hung it pretty much two feet away from my computer desk and its about 3 to 4 feet above my amp so it resides right with in my practice area for my guitar. The other benefit of this is the guitar is now up off the floor, as I was previously storing it in a gig bag under my bed and it no longer sit leaning against the printer / amp stand directly on the floor where the girls can take an interest in it.

The mount itself is fairly strait forward it consists of a back plate and a yoke for the head stock of the guitar to rest in. Mounting it to the wall was easy as well for I didn’t even need to find a stud for the kit came with wall anchors so all Ill need to do is patch the hole up with spackle for when we move out. I already need to spackle two holes up form my first attempt at hanging out TV so I need to go on and get some anyway.

Now the big reason I wanted a mount for my guitar is that it makes it far more accessible for when I want to practice with it. Instead of going to another room I just pick it up off of the wall. I love it and my guitar just looks plain awesome on the wall.
