"Lots of guys have one or two cases, and they don't take up much space. Some guys have 6 or 7, and even then it's not that big of a deal. I, however, have a few more than that, and one of them is a double-neck case. While the "back of the closet" will work for most, I've come up with a super-simple, super-cheap way to clean up case storage.
Here are some pics of the cases in my shop area:
Yep, super-basic. It's a closet rod, mounted vertically, about 1 case-width from the wall.
Here you can see the (2) 2 1/2" wood screws that attach the top to the wood underflooring:
Depending on the height available, they will hold 5 or 6 cases each.
If you do two side-by-side, make sure you leave enough space between them to slide the cases out. It won't take much, maybe 3" or 4". My setup is a little different (end to end), because I only take the cases out once a year.'
