The life of a musician is rough. I mean, the groupies and the travel sounds awesome. But storing all of that big, heavy & expensive gear when you get home? That's rough. We can only hope that your next world tour takes you through an IKEA-equipped city. That way, you'll be able to try out this IKEA-hacked portable guitar amp storage.

Using a small, 4-unit Expedit shelf, one enterprising IKEA Hacker created this rolling guitar amp storage unit.

All you need? An Expedit bookcase ($39.99, IKEA), a pack of RILL casters ($9.99 for a 4-pack, IKEA), and a little bit of ingenuity.

Oh, and a guitar amp. You're going to need a guitar amp:

Here's my hack : - Assemble the outside square of the Expedit shelf - Throw away the little separators and keep the big one - Fix the squares to the desired height and put on the shelf you keep from the previous point - Fix the four wheels with an electric screwdriver and voila!

To this tone-deaf blogger, it seems like a great way to keep your music equipment tidy and accessible. You could even add some DIY cord control solutions.
