    This wall hanger is great. It is rated for guitars up to 15lbs. I screwed mine to a stud because i don't like taking chances. Neck width can be adjusted by bending. This is actually mentioned in the instructions. I did need to adjust it so it worked out great. However this makes me a bit paranoid since I was able to bend it by hand, although to be fair it did take a decent amount of force.

    One of the reasons why I gave it four stars is because unlike other wall hangers I've had in the past, this one hangs the guitar further away from the wall. To me that doesnt look as good as my other guitars using other hangers. The other reason is because you have to screw on the neck holder to the woodplate. Yes it has a metal threat nut in the wood but it just seems a bit flimsy since my others are fixed. Again i am probably being too picky, since it is not an issue. once the guitar is on it chances of it uncrewing are zero.

    So pretty much as expected, the product as described on the web was a bit too good to be true. I also bought four of them and are currently using them to hang my entire collection on the wall above my bed so it's not like I hated them. And yes, I've got to trust these will hold weight, especially since one of my babies is a '67 Guild SF Six and she's heavy.

    You definitely don't need the wall bumper, unless you're hanging these super low, or plan on placing the guitars into their holders from above. The bumper is also about 2 inches across and so ENTIRELY out of proportion with the picture in this description. Also, my level of confidence in the adhesive on those bumpers is definitely not high.

    So, as far as installation goes, I've screwed these into really solid, old and thick plaster. Stuff that's nearly impossible to pound a nail into in the first place (I live in an ancient building). This I think, is the only reason my guitars haven't fallen off the wall, because I haven't used the drywall installation brackets! Here's why.

    I tried following the directions which say to screw in the screw and then take it out, using the hole created to place the drywall adapter. However due in part to the hardness of my plaster, but due also to the complete flimsyness of the drywall mounts, and the insane suggestion that the hole the screw makes will somehow accomodate a piece of plastic ten times its diameter, the first couple mounts I tried to put in broke and I just set aside the rest. I imagine you could theoretically use them, but you will need drywall almost as soft as sand, and you will DEFINITELY need a drill with much bigger bits than the size of the included screws. If however, you know where your wall members are, just screw into those and save yourself the headache. I imagine the mounts will be much more secure that way.

    Speaking of those screws, I didn't use them either, since the last half inch or so before the flat-top wasn't threaded. I needed all the thread I could get screwing into plaster alone (as I have no clue where my wall braces are, did I mention my place is ANCIENT). Instead I used similar screws that were threaded their entire length, so as to get maximum bite on the plaster. SO far no issues, though I'm being pretty gentle.

    I did also want to mention, yes the holders are theoretically adjustable, but no, you will not be able to adjust them unless you've been woking out your hand with a grip tightener, and/or working out your trapezius muscles with one of those huge ridiculous springs.

    My bottom line recommendation therefore, comes with significant caveats and reservations.

    So there, hope that helps.

                  Comments about String Swing Wood Guitar Wall Hanger w/ Wall Bumper:

                  I have my Martin 12-string acoustic currently hanging from one of these and I have no worries about it coming off the wall. I *think* I hit a stud and didn't use the plastic wall anchors that came with it. If you weren't sure, having those wall anchors installed first, then screwing into those would be as solid or possibly better than finding a stud, I'd think- those anchors are huge! Once the wall plate is installed, the hanger itself is very solid. I like that it has a collar between the wall plate and the hanger to help prevent the hanger from gradually bowing downward from the effects of gravity. Hanger is also covered in a very safe rubber coating, ensuring no damage is done to the finish of the neck. Bumper is smaller than expected (only about 3" wide, 1" deep), but does exactly what it needs to do. Whole thing looks great on the wall!

                            These hangers are nice, and obviously built in the USA (only because of the high price). The wood would have been nicer without a logo on it. The bumper shown in the picture is actually less than 3 inches in length and about an inch wide. Don't let the picture or price fool you. If you buy the bumper separately, at just under $4, you'll be very disappointed. There is a confusing list of guitar options. One is for solid-body, which MF doesn't seem to stock. not sure if that option would be better, because this hanger is really optimal for acoustic guitars, not electrics and basses. Otherwise, the hanger holds the weight nicely, and looks attractive. Non-refundable, although MF may make an exception, if these are unopened.

                            I now own 3 of these and they are really well made, sturdy, nice looking -- highly recommended if you want to display your instrument on your wall. I definitely play it more when it's out of its case.
