Thread Name: Help: Looking after your guitar collection
Subject: RE: Help: Looking after your guitar collection
After my latest aquisition, a Larivee L05, I was warned in no uncertain terms to not hang guitars, at least acoustics, on walls, as they dry out faster higher up on the wall. Is this not so? In the summer I use guitar stands and leave em out, usually in corners away from traffic, but in the winter, I keep the Larry in a case for humidity purposes. It feels less accessible though, I like having em out and around so I can just pick em up and go at it. Electrics are easier that way. My question is, having an i-hole humidifier, how often do you add water to the sponge? This is southern Manitoba, Canada we're talkin' about; gets pretty dry, but I don't want to over do it. SB
