The 10 Best Guitar Hangers
This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Anyone who owns an instrument will appreciate the benefit in having it close at hand, to be picked up and played as soon as inspiration strikes. A guitar hanger not only displays your prized possession upon the wall for all to see, but also keeps it out of harm's way, yet within reach, whilst freeing up floor space in the home or studio, where room is often at a premium.

If you’re the kind of musician that likes to keep things organized, or have to work with limited space, then a guitar hanger would certainly come in handy. It’s no coincidence that guitars adorn the walls of music shops all over the world, where they can be easily reached, are well presented, and occupy very little room, thus maximizing the capacity for sales.
The guitar hangers in this ranking fall into two categories. There are models that display the guitar nearer the horizontal plane upon a wall. These include the Orgrimmar Wall Mount, Hang'em High Weathered Grey, and the String Swing Low Profile, and have ornamental appeal as they present the guitar at the angle in which it is played, making a feature of it when not in use.
Other examples hang the instruments in the traditional way, vertically, from a yoke that suspends the guitar from its headstock. These include the String Swing CC01K-BW, Belfi Design Plywood, and the Sound Harbor Metal, all of which hook under the head of the guitar and let gravity keep it securely in place. Others, such as the Tekma Home and Studio, and the Neboic Auto Lock include latches that close around the guitar’s neck, adding an extra layer of security, as the instrument must be either physically lifted, or the latches opened by hand before it can be removed from its cradle.
Those looking for an alternative to a guitar stand, and need somewhere to place their accessories, might consider the Bikoney Hanging Rack. This useful model includes a small shelf upon which you can place strings, winders, and tuners, plus a slot to hold your picks, and three useful bronze hooks for hanging cables and straps.
