What storage solutions are you using for your guitars? Include how many guitars you are storing (or not storing).

I searched all over for storage possibilities that would help.  I finally designed a cabinet that I absolutely LOVE!!!  I created two enclosed racks, on wheels that  I left the front open.  We roll them face to face and lock them together.  It's nice.  They can be rolled together or individually.  They are nice and secure as well.  Each rack holds 20 guitars.

I have had good luck in hanging the guitars to the walls similar to the displays in a music store.  It doesn't take any floor space and is adaptable to many different school room dynamics.  I have used it in two rooms with great success.

Wow! DIY solutions for classroom guitar. Can you share a picture or the instructions or how to build it?

Can you share a picture of your class? Do the guitars get banged around at all?

After seeing the price of the nicer guitar storage racks, the maintenance department at my school is making a double decker rack much like what you see advertised for $700-900. They will get it done for half of that price. The wood shop students made 3 sizes of foot rests.  They would sell for $40-50. We just had to pay for wood, varnish, stain.  They are repurposed wood pallets, and look great.

I love the DIY-style! You should check out http://www.guitarbuilding.org/. It's a STEM program in which kids build their own guitars in wood shop. Your program can be totally home grown!

Guitars.jpgThe local music store donated the board. They had extra that they weren't using. Students who bring their own instruments may store them in cases below the hanging guitars.
