Liberating your domesticated musician from the garage

As I mentioned in the welcome post, all of this started with the guitar stand in the living room.   Why the aversion to a guitar stand in the living room?  The guitar stand probably looks like this:

or like this

While these guitar stands are perfectly functional and their ability to fold flat makes them excellent for playing out gigs, they are hardly worthy of your living room aesthetic.

Many domesticated musicians have had their passion banished to the garage, the back of the closet, or under the bed.  No need to banish them when there are choices like:

A sleek modern wall hanger:
D&A Grip White & Chrome with LIFETIME WARRANTY

 

Your roadie lending a hand guitar grip: 
Black Pearl Custom Guitar Hanger Right Hand Model

 

A sophisticated wall display case (lockable): 

Guitar Fender Display Case w/ UV Protection- Lockable
Or a wall display for multiple guitars: 
Guitar Hanger 48″ long

 

It’s time for your domesticated musician to join the rest of the household as a full fledged member.  Instead of that folding guitar stand your rockstar uses for playing out, here are some guitar grips, guitar stands, and other displays worthy of the beloved guitar.

It all started with the guitar stand in the living room

When I first started sharing a living space with a musician, I quickly noticed the guitar stand in the living room.  My initial reaction was that the guitar stand was not appropriate living room decor.  Then it became obvious that he really needed to have the guitar close at hand when he needs it. (I was surprised just how often the guitar needed to be close at hand, but that is another post.)

Rather than fighting over the guitar stand in the living room, I chose to embrace it. When shopping for items for the living room to go with the guitar and guitar stand, I found an item here or there but there wasn’t a site or store that had a good selection of music or rock star decor.

That’s what this site is about. It is for all the musicians, rock stars, music lovers and those who love them that need a place to shop.  Let’s get our musicians out of the basement and the garage and back into the house.
