I’ve been borrowing a Martin Backpacker Guitar from a friend for a few months, so I thought it was time to make a good place to store it. It’s smaller than a regular guitar but I like the sound better than a ukelele, been wanting to learn to play it for many years, and it fits into the house perfectly. Even Audrey, reluctant at first, really likes how it looks in our living nook.

I didn’t even look anywhere for a solution to hang the guitar as these tool hanging hooks are at every hardware store, everywhere. A quick Google search reveals I’m not the only one with this idea.

Bought two hooks for $1.50 each at our local neighborhood hardware store.

Used a silicone band to keep the guitar neck from falling over. Tension on the neck is very minimal as it doesn’t take much to keep the instrument upright.


Four screws later, it’s all done. It was a very cheap way to mount the guitar for easy access, keep it out of the way, decorate the room a little, and makes us happy.
