If it is in it's case, the neck should be supported in any position. Just as long as you don't go and lay it face down tongue.gif

dont matter. you will put less stress on the guitars neck if you are storing it in a gig back and you lay it down, however that stress is extremely minimal.

Well if it is in a hard case it doesn't matter. . .

The only reason (that I know) is because if you leave your guitar standing up - it can fall over and get damaged. So bear that in mind. . .

If you live north of the 32nd parallel you should store it at a 62 angle with the headstock pointing South-Southwest. Below should be at a 70 angle. This doesn't apply below the equator (like in Australia) in which case it should point North-Northeast. The earth's magnetic pole should be in alignment with your strings to keep molecular degradation of the alloys to a minimum. If your house has forced air heating (excluding fuel-oil) you should keep the relative humidity at 56% and the temperature at a constant 69 F.







Just kidding! If it matters at all, I haven't noticed it in forty years of playing.
