slightly to support the
guitar against your chest,
for the poetry
of the music
should resound in your heart."

SAVE YOUR GUITAR!

Depending upon where you live, you may be killing your guitar!!

I’m in the north east US and for most of the year, either the heat or the A/C is on in our apartment.

If you reside where:

• the heat is on

• the air conditioner is on

• the air humidity is less than 40%

YOU NEED TO
HUMIDIFY YOUR GUITAR NOW!

I suggest you get and begin to use a guitar humidifier immediately. There are several kinds available. More instruments are damaged due to climatic conditions than from any other single cause (not counting being trashed intentionally.) Dryness and sudden temperature changes are the worst culprits.

In the case of an arid enviroment, not only will the guitar crack from lack of moisture, but when the fretboard dries out, your guitar will buzz and the frets will protrude on the sides of the neck and may give you a nasty scratch/cut.

Get into the habit of monitoring humidity in the room where you keep your guitar. Get a hygrometer (humidity indicator) at any hardware store so you can give your guitar the humidity it needs, when it needs it.

Taking the initiative to humidify your guitar will save you the cost of repairs and will keep your guitar playing its best.

BE SURE YOUR GUITAR IS NOT LEFT NEAR ANY HEATING OR COOLING SOURCE NOR NEAR AN OUTSIDE WALL OF YOUR RESIDENCE IN VERY COLD OR VERY HOT WEATHER.

Remember, your guitar is comfortable where you are comfortable. Don't leave it in an unheated cold basement or attic and likewise don't leave it in a sweltering car or attic in the summer.
