A good source for this would be the Experience Music Project in Seattle. www.emplive.com. They have a guitar gallery that is all archival quality and a staff that does this all the time. Call and ask for the group that builds exhibits. (Hope they haven't layed them all off...)Originally posted by Fiend:
Was wondering how I could mount an electric guitar that weighs about 10-15 lbs so that there is no noticable hardware showing and no permanent alterarion to the guitar itself. Any suggestions.
Thanks for the kudos! The brackets were and extra precatution against frame separartion. The hasp that I used actually pulls the box closed quite securely, so the box does indeed close flush. The arms on the hanger itself are padded with neoprene, which as far as I know and have seen, doesn't degrade.Originally posted by Jay H:
That isn't a shadow box thats a "Axe Storage Unit". That is wicked awsome! Actually I am having a hard time understanding how you make the door and the back meet flush. I see the brackets you used on the corners of the door but is that a "cut out" on the box for the bracket to fit into? Or do they even meet flush? Just courious. Very good job.
Cost to us was about $500 or so, we charged $1200.Originally posted by Jana:
That is a very nice job, Seth. About how much did it cost? Thanks for posting the pictures.
