At first, I was look, oh yeah, can't wait to post my guitar wall, but after seeing this, I'm now in a depressed state. So yeah, there's that.

Even if you only own one guitar .. it’s still valid and worthy of a post.. as much as this thread may seem like it’s a boast about what we’ve got.. but far from it. It’s just a show and tell..
so post your rack .. proudly !!

Right on. The wife and I kinda went ham one day and decided we’d keep the ones we really liked in the end. My boys and I haven’t put them down since.

BTW, the Fenders hang on the wall just fine, but the Gibons don't - they hang at a slight angle and sort of bind in the fork thing. I don't recommend hanging a Gibson. Something to do with the neck angle.

I have a bit of an issue with hanging guitars on walls.. as walls retain and disperse heat quickly..throughout the day and night..which can twist and warp guitars very easily. I live in the UK so cold nights is an issue.

Gibson themselves hang the guitars….just look at the recent photos from the Gibson Garage in London. Don’t really think it’s an issue at all.

Might be dependent on the brand/style of the hanger. Mine are "String Swing" brand and I definitely cannot hang one of my Gibsons on there.

I don’t know that brand - I’m not sure what Gibson are using… I use Hercules and it works fine.

Excellent details and a very nice full rack!!
How do you like the es135..? Been seeing those pop up on my reverb a lot..
Depends on the day with that guitar. On one hand, it's pretty heavy for a semi-hollow, and I'm not thrilled with the P100s that are stock (I've just never gotten around to doing anything about them)
But on the other hand, it;s got that resonance of a semi, but a bit deeper than a 335, due to the bigger, thicker body.
I'll go though phases, like most of them, that I'll play it all the time for a few weeks or so, then put it aside for a bit.

I bought my first Fender guitar boat about twenty years ago when we were still living in California, and I was recording in the den:

In 2021, after I built my project studio and the fleet had grown a bit, I added a second:
