Thread Name: Guitar: How and Where to Store It??
Subject: Folklore: Guitar: How and Where to Store It??
Wifey and I have agreed to have public space in our new abode, in which we decide together in harmony (or at least well suppressed simmering hostility) decide how to arrange the space, and our own rooms in which we can do pretty much what we want to as long as it does not endanger the house.

I have five guitars with hard cases. With some validation from the Cats--I am sure there is an Youtube video out there showing this--I have realized that having an instrument--a guitar, that is--out on a stand makes it much more likely that it will be played. She does not mind if I keep one out so that we can both enjoy music. I opted to keep it in the case, because I was pretty sure that the kitties would discover the new scratching toy. However, they have begun "enjoying" the case of anything left in public.

"My room" is too small to store the guitars. Besides, that would introduce another factor into the end desired result of my picking it up for some impromptu noodling. I started to suggest hanging a guitar up on the wall where they could not get it but I could. That was vetoed.

So my question is: "How should I deal with her (dead) body?" (Just kidding....Or am I? Yes, I am...I think.)

Anyone else have this situation or (polite) suggestions as to how to resolve this without resorting to separate homes?
