setting your guitar down

on my rg570, if i set it down so that the back of the body is on the ground, the headstock touches before the body and casues the neck to bend up. i don't think that is very good for the neck. should i just put it up against something or have the front side down?

Well, I wouldn't recommend on it's back or string side down...I guess you could stand it up and have it lean against something

It would be a bad habit to get into. Someone or yourself could accidentally step on the headstock end and crack it. Face down would be better if you must lay it on the ground.

If you don't have a better way to store your guitar then maybe try putting a pillow under the neck/ body to keep the headstock from touching anything.

You really do need a hanger, stand or a case.

I always learned that if i have to leave it somewhere, to lean it against a counter edge or the front of my amp string side in, to prevent neck warping, which is what i do.....

<---nervous now lol

GO spend 10 bucks on a folding tube stand and keep it in your car.
I don't see the problem.

Lay it back in the case bro. and close the lid, nothing will go wrong then. My band usually has so little free time to practice that the only time Im not playing the guitar is when Im packing it up to leave

Check out http://www.americanmusical.com and do a search for Ibanez Guitar Stand.

They have them, they are small enough to fit in your case and work great.

They warn that the rubber may mar the finish and to put a cloth on the rubber between the guitar and the stand, but I've not had a problem after much use.
