    Behold, my new guitar-case rack. Case storage has always been a headache anyhow and when I saw this at StringSwing I ordered it post haste.

    That looks nice and tidy. I stack mine 5 cases high, it's economical but definitely a pain.

    Nice. I gotta say, fender got it right with rectangular cases. Stackable, and when you open the closet they don't tip the wrong way out.

    You have a point there, rectangular cases are easier to store.

    Nice! My hardest working sub-$100 accessory (and I still get compliments on it):

    Doesn't hold enough cases and at $60.00 that is a cost of $12.00 a case. I think we can get that cost down. :) Just shove them under all the various beds in the house, stick them in the attic, keep them in the trunk of our cars.

    Seriously that looks like a pretty nice functional piece of work. I might buy two thanks for sharing.

    It's definitely cleaned up the area beneath my world famous Wall o' Guitars.

    Nice looking. Need something like that myself, but I think I can build one. (Maybe a new hobby niche?) Can you show a side view? How angled is the back?

    There's not much to it. A person could build something like this if they had woodworking skills, which pretty much leaves me out.

    You probably make one out of PVC pipe for really cheap, too. It’d be ugly, though.

    They could but it would be a challenge for the cost to be $60 if you factor in labor/ time lost. Even with pvc.

    Actually, I supply that type of racking. If any body wants some you can have it super cheap.

    So I count 3 Gretsch to 1 Guild....
    Yep, the ratio is spot on I would say!
