Heavy Duty hanger for holding guitars. Easily removable and repositionable. Head rotates 180° for hanging guitars straight or at an angle. Our guitar anger is made from tough powder coated steel with an added soft foam cushion to protect delicate finishes around the guitar neck. Locking strap secures your guitar safely.
The guitar hanger works perfectly with our entire SlatWall MX™ product line. Remember that our guitar hanger is standard size and therefore will fit other manufacturer's slat wall with standard 3” OC spacing.
During the process of building my own studio, The Hideout Recording Studio (www.hideoutlv.com), my wiring installer, Zack Fagan from Under the Wire (www.underthewire.tv), suggested I look at diamondLife gear to clean up and organize my guitar tech room. After checking the diamondLife products out online, I immediately put my order in. The diamondLife guitar hanger not only allows me to solidly hang many guitars on the wall in a small area, it also really looks fantastic and matches the decor in my studio. I would suggest all diamondLife products for anyone who values functionality, quality and aesthetics.
How do I hang a guitar with a narrow headstock? Some guitars like Fender Telecasters®, have a narrow headstock and don't fit well on a hanger. Here is how you can modify the hanger to make it fit:
Take the padding off
Using channel lock pliers or a table vise or similar, bend both arms inward a bit
Then bend the left arm down a bit
Then bend the right arm up a bit
Reinstall the padding
Your narrow headstock guitar will now fit perfectly.
Are the cushions safe for guitars with nitro-cellulose finishes? Unfortunately, no guitar hangers have completely nitro cellulose safe cushions, ours included.
As we understand it, damage can occur in two ways: the material used for the cushion 'out-gasses' causing the lacquer to stain, or the cushion prohibits air and moisture movement from the wood of the guitar through the finish causing it to stain.
There are accessory items that address either of these problems, but not both. Leather covers can be purchased (Ingles #SA-10HC) that allow the wood/finish to breathe, but they don't completely stop the cushion gasses from passing through to the finish. There are 'gas-free' cushion materials, but these are relatively expensive and, like the leather covers, address just half the potential problem..
Somewhere in between is likely a solution, but so far none of us manufacturers have found the confidence to state "this is the solution".
For our guitar hangers we use a material that we consider to be comparatively low in its emissions. We can suggest that cloth or leather 'pads' be placed on the hanger arms.
How do I fix the position of the hanger to the strip? Use a piece of double faced foam tape on the backside of the hanger. Although any tape will work, Blackbird™ Pedalboard Tape works well because it removes cleanly if you ever need it to. Buy it here: http://pedalboardshop.com/product/blackbird-pedalboard-tape/
