Make your own floating electric guitar mount

So I thought I'd start making YouTube videos too. For my first one, I'll show you how to mount an electric guitar horizontally on the wall so it looks almost like it's floating there.

But I like what I did better, especially since I had all the materials hanging around already, so it was free!

I will be doing a similar project with my acoustic guitar, so keep an eye out for that if you're interested.
