My Guitar Cabinet

Classical Guitarist If you haven’t figured out by now, I am a guitar junkie! And as a guitar junkie I have always wanted a place to just chuck in my guitars and all the stuffs that goes with it. I just have a few more guitars than I have guitar stands. Often when people see my guitars they would suggest that I get those multiple guitar stands.

Guitar Stand & Racks

Those are good. I have single stands but not those that can hold multiple guitars. I can almost hear the repeating suggestive voices ~ “get the freakin MULTIPLE STAND ALREADY!” lol! It’s not that I don’t want to, I sincerely don’t have the heart to have all of my guitars displayed openly. Leaving my guitars out in the open is really not a good habit when there are cats around doing what they do, plus that thing does take up quite a bit of space.

Guitars (actually a lot other stuffs too bags, shoes etc..) when left unattended for a period of time may easily turn into a scratching post and not to mention getting fur in every nook and cranny of the instrument!. It is a blessing if nothing breaks. But what can I say, I love all my cats too :). I usually have two guitars out and placed on their individual stand. One electric and the other an acoustic. Behind closed doors of course.

And anyway, it’s just not practical and sometimes can be decremental to store guitars in their hard case for long periods of time. They need to breathe too especially in high humidity places like Malaysia. In extreme cases, humidity can do irreparable damage to the wood, electronics and the rest of the hardware. Rust and certain microscopic life-form will claim your guitar as a habitat. Yes some things can grow without the light.

Broken Guitars

So when the Mrs. did some spring cleaning a few weeks back, she found out that she could do with a smaller cabinet for herself. And due to the many moves that we had, the cabinet that she has been using wasn’t really in a good shape. It wasn’t stable structurally and it was falling apart. But it wasn’t all that bad, a few screws here and there and some lovin’ time with the handyman side, it should be as good as new, it can yet be salvaged, I told myself followed with a :).

All these while, she was using the cabinet to keep her long drapery dresses thingy and it just happened to be the perfect size to convert into a guitar cabinet. After getting a new cabinet for her and a few hours of tool time…Finally I have my very own guitar cabinet! I also have space to store all the little titbits that goes with the passion. A lot less dust and fur on my guitars and surprisingly so far it looks like the strings last longer too. As they say at McDonald’s: I’m Lovin It! :yahoo:
