EDIT 1/30/15: My right-handed guitar did not fit securely in the left-handed grip - even with very careful placement, it fell out and got pretty banged up. I looked up the info after reading Tony's comment below, and mine is a limited edition stratocaster with an early 60s style headstock, it is a thinner headstock than typical with a less pronounced curve out on the right side, which is surely why it doesn't fit as intended. While I would highly recommend this item - we've been using the other 3 hands for almost 3 years now and still love them, and, as Tony said, they work great for most strat's - I would still warn owners of smaller-than-usual 6-in-line headstocks to use caution (common sense: if it doesn't seem to fit securely, don't leave it hanging there), because looking cool on the wall doesn't make up for the potential damage to your instrument.
Post installation pictures drove friends to purchase & guest always point out how cool it looks.
Cons: The anchoring screw is solid enough to actually stay in the wall, so removal might be difficult.

The massive problem is the fixings.
Be aware, these guitar grips are designed to only screw into a wooden vertical joist. They are not designed to be secured into plasterboard walls. This means it's not possible to purchase a standard plasterboard RAWL plug, and think you'll be able to attach them into a plasterboard wall fixing, in the exact place where you want to guitar to be hung.
Each hand comes with a double end screw - one end to screw into the hand, the other to screw into the wooden joist. The thread for the wooden joist, will not be suitable for going into a rawl plug. The only option to remediate this would to somehow find an alternate fixing that is suitable for both the rawl plug you intend to use, and the hand thread. This is just far too much faff for me.
The only option is to attempt to situate the guitar grip against the vertical wooden joist/stud, IF of course one is available in the room. In my case, 3 of the 4 walls were not suitable, though 1 was.
You need to drill through the plasterboard, through the small air gap, and then into the joist. The instructions say to use a 3/16 drill bit - I hadn't a clue what this meant, and was able to find that this equates to circa 4.5mm or 4.8mm drill bit. It's clear these products are designed for a USA only market.
The next problem, is that the length of the thread that protrudes from the guitar grip is tiny, it's a max of 2 inches / 5cm. So factoring in the plasterboard thickness, and any air gap, the amount of thread available to secure into the joist/stud is fairly small. As such, rather than the fixing being secured rock-solid into the wood, it droops slightly, and weights down on the plasterboard, and is 'bendy'.
I purchased both left and right hands. I got the left hand in as per the above. When putting the right hand in, I had a further problem, in that the thread screwed too much into the hand, leaving only about 3cm / 1 inch protruding from the hand to fit into the wall, which was just far too little. . I can only guess the hand was drilled incorrectly. I used a pair of pliers to screw the thread into the wall first, then put the hand on.
In summary, some people will have no issues with installation, although many will struggle. It beggars belief that the manufacturers can't just design them for standard plasterboard wall fixings, which are far more secure, stable and common than fixing into a joist/stud. Once installed, they look and function great, just be prepared for the install, and consider your may not be able to situate them in your preferred location.
Look really good, and any vistors find them impressive
Easy to install, and doesnt take long. Seem quite robust, and hold the necks very well and securely. Hangs nicely when put into grip.
They say you get what you pay for, and theseholders are worth the money. Previous cheap ones ive had before have had to be replaced/or been unsturdy - I'm alot more confident with trusting these hangers with my prized guitars!
easy to fit with no showing fixing although quite dear for a guitar hanger
they are well trouble is you will need more guitars.
Very well made, quality product thats easy to put up.
