Guitar wall bracket

I printed a V2 bracket and it was too short. The only way I could hang the guitar was with it facing the wall. It's also not wide enough for an acoustic. :(

I printed one of these and screwed it to the wall and placed my epiphone les paul on it. I walked out of the room to grab something and heard a crash returning to find that the print had failed and one wing had sheered off. I should have known better. Perhaps changing the orientation of the print would provide better results but I'll just spend a few bucks and buy a cheap mount rather than try to print another and roll the dice.

I appreciate the design and perhaps my experience is abnormal but still I thought I'd share my experience with others. As for the guitar...it seems to be okay. Its "used" so it already has a few nicks and dings but not many.

Hi, which bracket would you recommend for a fender stratocaster ?
Thank you !

Arms are too short for anything thicker than an SG. Tried the 80% infill and the arms were making cracking noises so I'm printing at 100% now.

What temperature are you printing on?

Abs at 220 extruder and 110 HBP.

Well, i just removed my ABS from my printer and put back PLA. I have the feeling that ABS prints are more brittle and the layers break lose much easier from each other. My PLA printed hangers are pretty sturdy. Even on 80% infill.

Well, my classic guitar hangs just fine in 1 the bracket.

I've never seen anyone hang all that weight from the tuners. That's just ASKING for trouble. It's gotta hang from under the headstock. I was thinking of taking the STL and extending the arms out more but I'm not sure if the length would handle the weight.

I made a version with longer arms, 85mm lenght. Especially for you, haha. :D

Maybe you're right. I had the intention to make another design for my classic guitar since the arms are too short indeed, but i have the feeling this is ok for my guitar. :) You need the file is some other format to edit it? IGES, DXF, whatever?

Already done and posted :)

Hi, does this works as well for a Classical Guitar?

I made a derivative from this that's thicker and has much longer arms for acoustic instruments.

Well, no idea. Maybe you should give it a try. I added a version 2 of the bracket who is a bit stronger i think. I removed the text and the @2 at the back and added a R5 curve at the point the arms are attached to the back plate. "Guitar bracket - v2.stl"

I wonder whether it would be strong enough to hold my banjo securely. A banjo is generally much heavier than a guitar.
