    I can't see any downside to hanging them. If you think about it, it's probably the least stress inducing on the neck in that alot of cases fit tightly and thus put downward force against the neck behind the rest. The only thing that I could see as a downside is if you have radical temp changes or humidity changes over short periods. You could potentially get some warpage. I don't case any of my guitars except during transport and have not had any issues. My room temp. is always between 75 and 80 degrees though. The shovel hangers are a great idea. Thinking further about this though, what is the padding made of? reason I ask is if your neck has a nitro finish, if the padding is non surgican rubber, it could attack the nitro finish. Simple fix though. I usually wrap my stands with black fabric hockey tape to avoid this from happening, but if your guitar neck is poly or acrylic it should not be an issue at all. Great suggestion! I'll look into it. I've been wanting to get some hangers.

    Hanging is fine if your humidity is okay. Guitars want to be at about 47%-50% relative humidity. If the area you're hanging them is 40%-60%, you'll probably fine.

    If it is lower or higher (most especially with acoustic guitars) then you'll run into problems if you don't keep the room humidified.

    The best place for your guitar is a hard case.
