Guitar Wall Hangers

Updated on August 23, 2017

Guitar Wall Mounts To Showcase Your Guitar Collection

When you're looking for good guitar wall hangers to hold your piece in place on the wall, you'll notice that there are many different types to choose from. While not expensive at all, it's still annoying to buy the wrong type of wall mount for your guitar, so here you will find some of the best ones reviewed.

How did I come to know about guitar mounts in the first place? My brother loves to play guitar, it's his main hobby for many years. He has a collection of no less than 8 guitars, and he swears that each of them plays the same song differently. From bass guitars to electric guitars, he has them all.

However this is where the problems started, as he had to find a way to store all these guitars, so he bought several guitar hangers for the wall and finally he decided on the best ones for any hobby guitarist.

Enjoy the selection and if you found something else that works best for you, leave a comment in the Guestbook below. And don't forget, these wall hangers and stands make great gifts for guitar players!

This is my brother's favorite guitar grip, he swears by it. While he also uses other hangers, I've seen this one and it's pretty cool, indeed. And let me tell you, when you see it in action, it's awesome. You want to touch it and feel its texture, is so well done.

Showcasing your guitar is really easy with this particular guitar wall hanger.

The finish is high gloss, which simply looks grand. It can hold any type of guitar, no matter the style or the weight. You can mount it to any height and it includes everything you need to mount it on the wall for holding your guitar. It has a TAH3 cushion insert which protects the guitar's neck and headstock, so your piece is very safe here.

Highly recommended!

For A More Serious Guitar Wall Hanging System

If you're looking for something more serious, a system that can hold many guitars in place, this mounting device is for the pros, indeed. My brother doesn't have it, but I saw him look at this mount quite a few times. I might just help him get it as a Christmas gift.

It can hold up to 6 guitars and it truly looks great on the wall. There is a system for both a left and a right wall mount (below is the mount of the opposite side wal, this one is for the right wall). When you have this system in your house or your studio, you really feel like you're in a guitar store. The dimensions are 48 " long 3 1/2" wide 3/4" and it is made of thick domestic red oak wood.

Yes, it is pricey, but it is one of a kind, admit it. You won't find this particular system in local shops at all.

Studio Guitar Mounting System For The Left Wall

If you want the same system for your left wall, here it is. Exactly the same dimensions and specifications, except it is made to mount on your left wall.

If you have no more, no less than 3 guitars, this is a cheaper alternative to hold and showcase your guitars on the wall. Very easy to install in just a couple of minutes, this system is also made of domestic red oak wood, and it includes all the hardware you need to mount it on the wall. The dimensions are 30 x 6 x 30 inches.

I love this design, it really looks like a tree top and you can change how the guitars look on the wall, depending on which you place in which position. Totally unique design, and it's quite affordable, and makes a perfect Christmas or birthday gift - or any gift for that matter.

Standard Horizontal Display Mount for Electric Guitars

I you have an electric guitar (or two), this mount fits the bill to perfection. Look at it, isn't it gorgeous on the wall? The quality is good, the price is right (really!) and it's very easy to install. You can display your guitar at any angle that makes your piece showcased become a wonderful wall art. It includes all the mounting hardware so you don't have to get anything else. The dimensions are 6 x 3 x 6 inches.

8 Wall Mount Guitar Rack Hangers Stand Holder Griffin

8 Wall Mount Guitar Rack Hangers Stand Holder Griffin

Here is a much cheaper alternative if you have 8 guitars (or less) to store and display on your wall. Currently the actual price of $119 is reduced by 80% at Amazon to only %39.95. Not sure how long this price will last, but personally I think it's a steal.

The wall hangers seem to hold the guitars quite well and while they don't look as awesome as the one my brother has (the hand rack), they do the job quite well, without becoming the enter of attention. I guess some people prefer these, as they want to showcase the guitars and not the hangers :-)

The 8 hangers are made of steel with black neoprene rubber tubing and they can hold pretty much any type of guitar, be it bass, electric or acoustic.

A great guitar wall mount that is easy to install and you can also adjust the guitar to 90 degrees up/down and 180 degrees flat.Quite sturdy and again, the price is right (brought down from $45 at Amazon to around $29 right now).

It basically holds the guitar horizontally, but as I mentioned before, you can adjust it on the wall, so it's not a fixed wall mount.

Note of caution: the guitar should not be deeper than 2 3/4", as this is really for a rather narrow style guitar. However most of them fit the bill, so you should be ok - but check the depth anyway.

Below you will find the same style wall hanger for wide bodied guitars if you like this style.

String Swing Horizontal Guitar Holder for Wide Bodied Guitars

The same style as before, but for wider guitars. It can hold up to 5 1/4" deep guitars.

 

How About A Cool Guitar Stand For Your Piece?

      I went with stands since I can move them from room to room.

      My brother has his guitar collection hanging on his office wall. They really look nice. I didn't know about the hand-shaped guitar holders. Blessings.
