These hangers work well over all. Purchased a 5 pack plus one single hanger to place all my guitars/bass on the walls to conserve floor space. These black hangers look good and have ample padding for the neck when they are suspended. They are also far enough away from the wall to where I do not have any issues with any of my guitars banging/touching the wall, including a full sized acoustic, as long as I am careful when placing them on the hangers. The only issue I have had is that 2 of the 6 hangers will not tighten completely against the wall. There is a slight wobble to them. I did not want to take any chances with failures and my guitars, so I got toggle bolts of the same screw diameter as those that the hangers came with. Most of them snugged up to the wall extremely sturdy and with 100+ pound metal toggles in the wall, I know my guitars are definitely safe!

To be specific about the problem, one of the screws (the top I believe) will not fully tighten on two of them. I thought maybe I had a bad toggle bolt so I switched them out twice on each one and got the same result. I don't understand how this is happening because the screw will turn freely in the slot that passes through the hanger. I would think that this means the toggle bolt should eventually force the hanger to tighten up, but it never does. There is just enough wiggle room for the 2 hangers to rock back and forth slightly. which is annoying. I can't tell if there is some kind of slight deformity in the hanger that is causing this, or maybe something is going on in my wall in those two places that is preventing the toggle bolt from biting into the wall while tightening? It's still a mystery so I thought potential buyers might want to keep this mind when considering these. Otherwise the hangers are well made, look good, and seem very durable. It's great to not have to dodge guitars every time I'm tinkering in the music room!

Sturdy hanger

This hanger holds a guitar fairly secure. Best use if drilled into a 2x4 or thick drywall. I wouldn't hand a brand name guitar. Nonetheless, good hanger.

              This a great display hanger, and gets the job done. It comes with two screws for the wall, as well as a set of plastic anchors for drywall mounting.

              My only gripe was the wood base. It is real wood, but the finish is very smooth and almost feels like plastic. Nothing that a paint job couldn't change.

                  Comments about FretRest by Proline GH1 Guitar Wall Hanger:

                  I recommend using a stud finder and using 2 1/2" or 3" drywall screws into the stud. I would not personally hang my guitars with drywall anchors. Usually studs are spaced at 16" which works out to be pretty much perfect for most guitars and if you have enough you can make your wall look like a music store.

                  These open up floor space. Keep your guitars safe and it's very usefull to have them all out and available instead of opening up cases to get to something. It's a must for a studio.

                  I use a tape measure to get even height and a level to get them nice and straight and it looks real pro. It might be my favorite part of my studio.

                  The only "cons" would be the foam seems to be degrading on some I bought @ 2007 and the black paint chipped on some when I took them down and moved, but I just threw them in a box, so that is my fault I guess.

                      Does what they are supposed to. I have 4 of them with two basses and two guitars...no problems with any. (guitar has dean V. headstock and rest are traditional.) no problems. I play in a smaller room with a drum set and have never knocked these off the wall. I used the screws directly into studs and don't know if the drywall fasteners are good or not.
