The Top 5 Reasons to Mount Your Guitar with a Guitar Hanger

Every instrumentalist, musician, and guitar player absolutely cherishes their guitar, the very vessel that enables them to play, write, and create music. Whether it’s an electric guitar or an acoustic guitar, these incredible musical tools have been the foundation of some of the most life-changing and generation-defining tunes, songs, and anthems of the last centuries.

This past March, artists, advocates, musicians, and entrepreneurs came together for the 5th Annual Puff N’ Putt Spring Fling, sponsored by NORML and Willie Nelson, at the Willie Nelson Cut N’ Putt Golf Course in Spicewood, Texas. Working to gain safe access to cannabis for adults with a focus on supporting Texas Veterans and their fight to re-legalize cannabis, some local businesses and designers were able to take part in the fun.

Organize your jam space: Considerations when using Guitar Stands

Every instrumentalist knows clutter. Whether it’s musical gear, clothes, food, homework, or a maddening combination of the above, the name of the game is defeating clutter and chaos. An organized workspace promotes activity and is more inviting for others to join and work in. Keeping your stringed instruments safe is challenging with typical floor guitar stands: they take up space and are easy to bump into, even knock over. GuitarGrip custom guitar hangers keep your instruments safe and accessible.

Space and time are both valuable, and organization is essential to a functional jam space.

Level up. Live better. Keep rocking.

Guitar Hangers from GuitarGrip: A Better Resting Place for your Guitar

Most guitar players have done it: leaned instruments against walls, chairs, counters, and of course, set them on the bed. Part of the writing/rehearsal process involves unforeseen moments of inspiration, so it’s vital to keep your gear in easy reach. But it doesn’t have to be at the expense of your sanity and the safety of your guitar.

Haunted Guitar Hangers Are Here...Zombie and Skeleton Wall Mounts

Suddenly, while searching for the perfect sound, you trip on a  guitar stand on the floor, uttering a ghastly shriek as your beloved backup axe tumbles to its doom, taking all your good vibes with it. The last thing you see as you fade from happiness...your beer spilled too! Curses!!!
It's like a dagger to the heart, really annoying and hard on the nerves. This sucks.

Alice Cooper and His New Guitar Hangers

When I was a kid I discovered “Welcome to My Nightmare”, in my uncles vinyl collection, and it punched me right in the face. Alice Cooper, “the Godfather of Shock Rock", elevated heavy metal to new heights in entertainment. I’ve been a fan since I was a kid and was thrilled when a pic of Alice, holding his new Grip Reaper and Toxic Zombie guitar hanger, showed up in our inbox!  

A big “THANK YOU” to our close friends at the Dick Wagner “Remember the Child” fund for helping us make the connection with Alice. Dick Wagner helped create infamous rock n’ roll classics like “Only Woman Bleed” and “Welcome to My Nightmare”, and was uncredited on classics like “My Stars” from the “School’s Out” LP. Do yourself a favor and check out the “Remember the Child’ fund which carries on Dick’s legacy of helping hospitalized children with the healing powers of music. 
Both Alice and Dick were raised in Michigan, which just so happens to be the place that GuitarGrip designs and manufactures it’s unique hand shaped guitar hanger.

Guitar Holder Wall Mount Systems

Guitar Wall Mount Systems

Guitar wall systems are the typical go-to for the musician with many guitars, it's a simple way to consolidate your storage issues into one simple solution. These systems make it easy to store and display the spectrum of instruments in your music room for your guests or bandmates to marvel upon. However, guitar wall-rack systems are usually semi-permanent solutions to storage and lack the freedom to reposition or relocate. 

Drawbacks to Guitar Wall Racks

These systems are installed at about eye level, or slightly higher, for an ergonomic storage solution that can be modified to suit any and all heights. They're largely inexpensive, but there are drawbacks to such a system. Typically, they require two mounting screws, drilled into a mount that is also mounted to a wall. The mounts are tightly fastened into the studs to withstand the weight of multiple guitars. This makes it difficult to reposition the system or move it. Another major drawback is a simple one: they just don't look cool. Guitar wall mount systems don't have the flair and edge a guitarist needs in their music room, that expressive flash of color that represents the musician's inner fire.

Easy Solution to the Guitar Wall Stand

GuitarGrip has a solution to the wall mount system predicament. GuitarGrips are mounted directly to the wall, using a simple one screw system that's easy to install and relocate. Their low profile makes it easy to mount alongside one another, and they come in a wide spectrum of colors, so you can show off all those sick guitars in your studio or music room with style and ease.
