A useful tool to save space and get you to practice more often Jun 13, 2006
By Sherpa Kahn
This thing isn't some fancy item with tons of features to review, but it does what it's supposed to: it grips your guitar or bass securely, saves some floor space, displays your instrument nicely, and puts it in plain sight and arm's reach so that you can practice more often. I also like the fact that it's wood and not some ugly polyethelyne plastic or something like that. As I couldn't find a stud in my wall, I mounted this thing on the side of my wood bookshelf and it looks and works beautifully. One thing: DO NOT JUST DRILL ANYWHERE INTO YOUR WALL FOR THIS THING!! Make sure you mount it in a stud or on some significant piece of wood, because odds are some day the weight of your guitar or bass will rip it out of drywall and then you may or may not have damaged your instrument. So, buy one or five of these and make a nice display of your axes.

Received CC01K, not CC01 Nov 24, 2010
By C. Adamson
Although the listing indicates Model CC01, I received CC01K. These models are slightly different.
The CC01K is a newer product. Compared to the older CC01, it has a deeper yoke and does not include keeper rings. The older CC01 has a wider yoke and includes keeper rings.
Some of the pictures here are the CC01, and some are the CC01K. Both are still made. If you order it here, I guess it is a crap shoot which one you will receive.
Also note that the listing is incorrect when it states the yoke has an adjustable width. This is not true. It can pivot to accommodate asymmetrical head stock, but its width cannot be adjusted. I verified this with a visit to the manufacturer's website.

Great deal Jun 20, 2009
By M. Windham
I've purchased similar wall hangers from some of the online musical instrument dealers for $12 to $14 and was skeptical when I saw these for around $9. I am happy to report that the structural quality is as high as the more expensive options and (to my surprise) the wood grain is much better looking than the picture would indicate.
Others have suggested that these be mounted to a stud but the included drywall anchors, when installed correctly, are very secure and would easily withstand the heaviest guitar you have (unless, perhaps, you play a 4" thick solid ebony instrument). If your studs are 16" apart, you could utilize them (staggered mounting if necessary) and get a fairly dense wall of guitars but if your studs are 24" apart you'll have a large (8"+) gap between instruments and may wish to opt for drywall anchors for some instruments as I have.
The back of my acoustic instruments (000, 00, Parlor & Classical) sit well clear of the back wall so I haven't had the need to put protective backing on the wall behind them (consider some backing if children or careless adults will be removing & replacing instruments from the wall). If you plan to use these for electrics, I'd opt for the electric specific hangers so they hang closer to the wall.
As a guitar builder, here's some advice for any newbies:
Keep your instrument in it's (humidity controlled) hard case except when playing. Failing that, keep it up high using a wall hanger and control humidity for the entire room (40 to 50%). I've seen far too many instruments get damaged when sitting down on a guitar stand.

Easy to install. Bendable arms adjust for different size necks. Good padding. Looks good.

Strong and Reliable Aug 03, 2008
By P. Finnerty
It's been 2 1/2 years since I hung this on the wall. It's very sturdy and securely holds my acoustic and I bought another for my heavy Strat. Make sure you use the foam rings for then end of the fingers, they prevent slippage. Mount to a beam with the included 2" screws for the best strength.
