I made these guitar hangers out of black walnut.  It’s a pretty simple DIY project easily completed in one weekend. These guitar hangers are designed for my son’s Yamaha acoustic guitars but the measurements could easily be adjusted to fit most guitars simply by changing the width of the back piece. This is one of those projects where it’s good to have the guitar in the shop while you’re making the hanger just for a test fit.
