  • DIY Guitar Rack

    I decided I needed a guitar rack. I saw a little tube job at GC but it looked kinda flimsy. I thought, I can build something way flimsier than that, and for less money ! So I cobbled together some 2x2s a 2x4 and some plywood.

    Is it slanted slightly toward the rear to keep the guitars from falling out?

    Aaaaaand, if I don't ask, someone will, so...

    What are the two guitars on the left? For slide?

      cool. you could prob lay 2 small pieces of wood across in 2 sections where the bodies sit and then throw some rubberized matting over it and the guitars would sit right there.

        You are correct sir.

        Not for slide. They are ten string tapping guitars, kinda like a Chapman Stick(R).
        The first one is just a 2x4 I put strings on.

        Yes that is probably a good idea. When I tried it out last night, the guitars are turning a little. I will probably stain it, maybe put some dividers on the bottom, add some rubber mat, and some felt on the top piece to protect the necks.

          You can go to the local fabric store & get some velveteen material. This is what I used re-upholster the inside of a guitar case. Put that on with some staples where the guitars come in contact & you're set. A little black paint on the staples & it's all good. I'll try to post some pics of a homemade one guitar stand I made of scrap plywood.

            Nice rack () but I'm even more impressed by your instrument collection. Very weird and cool stuff. I'm not much for naming instruments, but you should call your Jazz bass Marilyn Munster.

              Ha. Thanks. Those are my demented children. Prototypes of things I thought it would be cool to have. I like headless and fanned fret and almost no one makes those together, so I guess I have to make them. If I could buy them they would for sure be north of $3k. It used to cost me $1200 to build them but my most recent one came in under $500.

                Thanks for answering my question. I didn't know what those were called.

                  I gotta stay away from here. I have a bunch of scrap & you're all giving me ideas. Very cool rack.
