I love pulling themes from our Sneak Peek archives; it’s fun seeing how people creatively respond to different problems. One of my recent favorites was our best of bikes, and after looking through hundreds of homes, I realized we had a lot of musical home dwellers. Everyone seems to have a guitar propped in the corner or hung on a wall. Here are my favorite pics of guitars in homes. If you’ve come up with a unique storage option for the guitars in your house, I’d love to hear about it! And let me know if you have any “best of” requests! — Amy Azzarito
