I leave them in the case as I noticed if they sit in a regular stand they get a slight bow if left too long. In a rack stand, they get a slight twist. In the case I say. Stands are for momentary placement. IE; going for a smoke, changing something in the rig, etc.

1 - Store your guitars in their cases, standing up ó not lying down with one case on top of another. When storing several guitars, the cases should look like suits on a rack rather than a giant deck of cards. If standing them up isnít an option, store your guitars (in their cases) on their sides, with the upper side pointing up.

2 - Keep the string tension on the neck, but loosen the strings one or two half steps. They donít need regular tension when in storage, but having no string tension at all can lead to neck bowing problems.

3 - If possible, store your guitars in a room or a closet nearer to the center of the building rather than near an outside wall. This helps maintain a constant temperature and is especially helpful if you live in an area that experiences climatic extremes. A case humidifier is a good idea during dry winter months.

4 - Store vibrato-equipped guitars with the arms detached (the lone exception here being Bigsby vibratos, which can be folded back to rest below the top of the bridge, which is the highest point on the guitar).

i lay it down on a flat table next to my bed. this way i ensure that no pressure on the guitar hence preserving its setup. its a safe way to store it.
