    How else can you grab the right guitar when you need it? Fumble through the cases, guessing which one to open?

    Nah.

    This is much easier.

    I went to a friend's house Saturday for a surprise birthday party. He had a '52 Esquire sitting in a corner, on top of a '52 Deluxe amp. No guitar stand, just sitting on top of the amp, leaning against the wall. My friend doesn't play, the guitar, amp and case were pure decoration. I suggested he might want to put it away during the party. He said, "No, my dad kept it in the case under the bed when he wasn't playing. I think that's a waste." Bottom line, it's your guitar so enjoy it however you like.

    While I agree with many of these hanging theories...Easier access, hanging on the wall, etc... = more playing time, etc...I would ask if anyone that hangs them has ever had to clean the pots out with electrical cleaning spray due to dust or moister getting in??? Thats what adds the "crackle" to the pickups' sound when turning volume and tone knobs when plugged into an amp. Come to think of it, I've spray cleaned many pots, but can't remember ever doing a PRS... wow!!!! Nevermind...

    I use one of those hand held swifer dusters to get the inevitable dust off the guitar that it will collect while hanging on a wall.
    Works good too for getting under the strings around the pickups, bridge and tuning heads.

    I agree with the notion that we should enjoy our guitars in whatever way we see fit. For me, I keep all but one axe in cases. I always have one ready to go on a stand. For the most part, I rotate though all guitars and enjoy the ritual of getting it out of the case. I also wipe them down and return them to the case promptly afterwards. I just hate the idea of the guitars collecting dust in their many crevices while they are hanging there. Plus, no one really gives a damn about seeing my guitars on display.

    I also hang mine. But they're not exactly PS or core line PRS.... However if I had one, I would hang it. I just love to enter in my house and see them. Living on a tropical weather country also helps!

    It's not so much moisture, as dust and the normal things in a house environment that get vented through the heating and cooling systems, like cooking greases, etc. I've definitely had to clean the pots on guitars, as I used to keep mine out on stands a number of years ago.

    The moisture problems come because wood quickly absorbs and loses moisture, causing swelling/contraction. PRSes are pretty stable, but I like to minimize that. These issues are made worse with forced air heat in the winter.

    Cases do act as buffers.

    I've never felt that opening a guitar case was a very big deal, or enough of a pain to prevent me from playing guitar. As for sorting through cases to find a guitar...I only have a few guitars, so it wouldn't be an issue anyway, but I do identify them with luggage tags that are easy to see.

    Storage displays like 11Top's are the best of all worlds, since you can see the guitars, and at the same time protect them. Way to go!

    Yeah, but you can look at all of theirs and not have to pay for them. Not a bad thing!
