how should i store my JEM 7V

hi, this is my first thread

i bought my guitar brand new from guitar center 3 years a go.
since that day i kept my guitar in own case

i store mine in the cases laying down.
play them some maybe once a month at least and adjust the trussrods once a year and you will be fine.

Yes--closing the case is a good habit. Saves room, too.

I have three on the wall for quick access and three in the cases (because I don't play them as much), closed and on their side in the closet for more room.

Re: how should i store my JEM 7V

Unless you live alone, I would never put a guitar in a case and leave it open or even unlatched. The first instinct is to pick the case up by the handle to move it, and you'll be on your way to giving it the "road worn look" before it ever leaves your house.
