“ Brand: JHS / Type: Guitar Rack / Guitar Accessories „
I have three guitars and they are a pain to store. I also wanted to show them off as I am proud of my precious items. I decided that I would hang them on the wall and I looked at various ideas but found that this provided the easiest solution. I have two guitars now on the wall in the spare room and I think they make quite an attractive house piece.
==Price and availability==
These are a specialist item and there are only a couple of other similar items on the market. The JHS model costs £19 which is quite a lot especially if you want one for each guitar but I decided that it was a nice way to display the guitars so it was worth it.
The hanger is high quality and it comes with a wooden plaque and a bracket for the guitar to hang between. These are coated in foam to protect the guitar finish. The head of the guitar nestles against the foam bracket and the guitar is suspended. You get the choice of when you hang the bracket and I decided to be creative and hang them at different lengths to make more of a feature of them. I have a lovely black acoustic and a bass so the contrast looks really good.
The brackets are easy to use and although at first I was a little cautious about leaving my guitar suspended in mid air, on tugging at the brackets and feeling the quality I was reassured. My boyfriend hung these up and within an hour, my guitars were displayed beautifully. I find this to be a much better alternative to the A frame we owned as these are easy to knock over and get in the way. I have left room for the third guitar and I will shortly be buying another wall hanger in order to display my final guitar.
When I first hung my guitars up using the brackets, I kept popping my head in the back room to look at them. It was really nice to see them displayed, especially as I hardly ever play with the bass anymore. It reminds me of my cooler days when I dreamed of being a rock star. I think that music is an important part of a household and if you have a hobby then you should show it off rather than keep them in cases under the bed or getting in the way on an A frame. These are good solid investments and I highly recommend them.
Guitar storage has always been a problem for the average guitar enthusiast, and I am no different. Eventually there is just no more room for those bulky A frames and let's be honest, there not the most stylish of objects. However the solution I found was this wall mounted guitar holder. The idea is simple but very effective. Two foam coated prongs protrude from a plaque which is screwed to the wall. The head of the guitar then sits between these two and is supported in mid air.
This is an absolutely brilliant concept. Not only is it superbly space saving but also having a feature wall of guitars is pretty damn cool. The product is very simple to fix in place and once it's there that's it, job done. I also find this particular model better than others as the thing pivots as a whole rather than each prong going individually. This means that it can be rotated to hold awkward neck shaped guitars such as the fender telecaster.
The guitars are also very easy the remove from the stand, you simply lift them out and put them back when your finished. It's completely hassle free. And even better it's so much cheaper than buying a whole host of A frames. The only thing you have to be careful of is that over time the necks of your electric guitars may begin to stretch through all the downforce created by the weight of the guitar body. But other than that these little guitar wall mounts are superb.
Finding somewhere to put your guitar can be a pain especially if your house isn't the biggest. There are many different designs of stand but this particular one is a bit different, as it is wall mounted. The design is simple, The wooden panel is screwed to the wall and the guitar is simply hung on the arms by the headstock/neck.
The materials used are a pretty heavy wood for the back panel, and metal coated in thick rubber for the arms. The arms are shaped and slightly curved to match the guitars headstock/neck joint. This design will be fine for any guitar design bar double necks.
When placing this stand you should make sure the wall is capable of supporting your guitars weight. The stand is high enough off the floor to hang without touching the ground. Lastly it's not in a place where people who walk past are going to be constantly knocking it off the wall. The good thing about this design is that when your not playing your guitar it gets turned into decoration for your wall giving your guitar a duel purpose for existing.
This can be picked up for about £15-25 which makes it in my opinion quite overpriced for such a simple design, however you can't argue with results and this design works.
~No need to leave your guitar hanging about~
If space is at a premium and you find yourself with no real place to store your electric, acoustic or electro acoustic guitar and you are up to you neck in guitar stands and cases, what you really need is a way to maximize floor space and minimize the amount of room needed in order to store your instruments safely. That is where the very handy JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger can come in very useful. Having a number of instruments that take up valuable room in your home, means that you can use something like the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger to make the most of the available wall space in a room and instead of displaying pictures etc, you can use the wall hanger to display and store your guitar on the wall instead. Having used the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger to good effect and found it to be well made and durable I thought it was worth reviewing. Having suggested it as a product here on Dooyoo, I am pleased to say that as it has been added to the database I am now able to share my thoughts about it.
~Are you ready to carpet your walls with guitars?~
The JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger comes as an easy to fit wall mounted product that when sited and fitted correctly should be able to take the weight of a variety of full sized guitars. The JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger has coated and protected prongs that will allow the neck of most standard guitars to sit comfortably in place whilst keeping the headstock of your guitar away from the wall at the same time. Once fitted to the wall the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger will allow your guitar to hang in place with only the back or base of the guitar touching the wall, although in certain cases I have found the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger allows a guitar to sit proud of the wall completely, depending on the type and width of the body of the guitar you use this with.
The JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger is relatively easy to fit in place although it will involve drilling into the wall that you plan to support both the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger and your guitar on. If you don't have solid walls and have plasterboard type walls instead, the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger may not be able to be fitted as the fixings need to be used correctly on a secure base, so as to give enough integrity to the whole fitting. The wooden block that has been fitted to the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger means that not only do you have a neat looking finish to the end look once the hanger is in place, the block also means that the headstock of your guitar will not rub against the wall when placed into the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger as it allows the hanger to stay proud of the wall.
~How many guitars will each hanger fit~
To fit more than one guitar you will need to install further JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hangers as each one can only fit one guitar at a time. The beauty of the hangers once in place is that they free up floor space for amps, pedals and other musical equipment that you need in order to enjoy using your instrument. I have found that the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger is not suitable to hold smaller string instruments such as mandolins etc, as in general the headstock on such instruments is not large enough to sit comfortably and safely into the holder. I feel that the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger is fine for use with cheaper guitars that would not normally be kept in a case or a floor stand and when space is at a premium these hangers are very useful to have. I do tend to favour guitar stands and hard cases space permitting, but I have found the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger to be a useful space saving item to fit for those cheaper guitars that you just don't want to get rid of and lack space for.
~Summary, price and rating~
In summary I feel that the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger can be a very useful way to make use of wall space as a place to store and display guitars and when I had a number of wall mounted guitars I had no issues with the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger or any of the other wall hangers that I had fitted. My top tip would be that these hangers should only be used on solid walls as the weight of many guitars can be considerable and you must make sure that the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger is fixed safely and securely in place prior to use. The price of the JHS String Swing Guitar Wall Hanger is usually around £13 to £17 to buy and as mentioned you will need to buy 1 for every guitar that you want to hang on your wall. As I have had no problems with the product at al,l I feel it ought to get a 4 star product rating.
