Doog, you’ve met me, in the flesh, multiple times. You know how unbelievably neurotic I am.

In all seriousness though, I am half joking in this thread. I am more than happy to just buy a £40 rack from Thomann and leave it at that, and I don’t genuinely think all my friends will judge me for owning an ugly guitar rack. BUT it would be nice to have something that looks nicer, if that thing exists.

We’re a forum full of deeply shallow men who frequently compare one slab of wood painted blue to another slightly differently shaped slab of wood painted a slightly different shade of blue. We all obviously buy half this shit just to look cool. Is it really that ridiculous (I mean yes, fair enough, it is quite ridiculous) for me to want my guitar stand to look cool (yes, it absolutely is ridiculous)?

Sorry guys, the forum's over, shut it down. Doog says we're not allowed to worry about looking cool anymore. We all have to sit in a room with blank grey walls playing a black unbranded Strat copy through a Roland Cube.

I'm sorry, it's not my decision guys, it's Doog. I don't make the rules. Blame Doog.

Although I do quite like this.

See, this is exactly the kind of thing I was trying to find! I couldn't really find anything in the UK for some reason.

Now to weigh up whether Doog will judge me for spending £120 on a nice guitar rack... Laughing

(It's all a big joke, I am incapable of dealing with almost anything sincerely, oh no, etc.)

I like the design/shape/whathaveyou, but I'm not sure about the plain wood business. If they made one painted white or some tasteful pastel colour, it would be perfect.

Just in case you did want a load of single stands, I acquired a load from Doogfests past that I'd like to replace with the aforementioned ugmo G4M rack at some point (or the bunkbed Nick just posted).

Happy to forward on for nowt other than shipping (for Freddy or anyone tbh)

My actual take - I had one of those metal and foam 5 space racks for a while, ended up selling it in favor of single stands for two reasons. It was hard to take a guitar out without accidentally tapping into the neighboring guitars, which might have led to an accidental ding or two in my softer wood guitars. The other problem was in a practice space setting, people would put guitars on it either facing out, or in the correct direction but with the bottom resting on the outer bar instead of between the two. This just made me paranoid I would get blamed for a bandmate’s clumsiness when their guitar inevitably fell over, or cause it to domino into one of mine.

I think some of those road case style stands have more support between necks which could help to slide guitars in or out the correct way without bumping. I would get whichever case does this best if you definitely need a rack.


Personally I would get a couple of nice single stands for your go to guitars to have them within reach, and put the rest in cases or bags in closets/under the bed.

I think that the fancy "nice" looking ones are pretty terrible looking. They look like terrible looking furniture. For storing guitars, I have one of the cheap, tube and foam jobs that does what it's supposed to. It's sort of out of the way though. My living room however is littered with guitars on single stands. Guitars are class looking. The less stuff you put around them the better, so the small stands like Tim posted are ideal.

Grey walls are currently cool. Get with it, grandad.

Pretty much this.

My favorite guitar stand is this little Proline FS100E for that reason. Unfortunately it looks like they might have replaced it with the FS100AE to accommodate both electrics and acoustics, but doesn’t look as clean.

People brought guitars, guitar stands and beer and left you with the empties?

If you are even remotely handy you could make something similiar easy enough with a few basic tools for probably less than $30.00.

"Remotely" handy would be a very generous description, tbh. But I might give it a try.

Joke's on you, I moved house and I don't even have a shed anymore.
