Winter is Here - Be Good to Your Acoustic Guitars

Winter is here and so is the heating season, your heating system puts out dry hot air which can reek havoc with your acoustic guitars. Keep them hydrated (humidity) should be around 50%. If not, your wood (guitar body) will experience drying, shrinkage, with some hairline cracking. This will also effect the fingerboard and frets as well. Planet Wave makes a soundhole humidifier that works very well in confined spaces, like your guitar case, so keep that sponge wet and your acoustic in the guitar case when you're not playing it. This way, your acoustic and you both will survive the winter months unscaved. Remember; "Be Good to Your Wood".
Just a Helpful Hint,

That is a very good and timely message we all should listen to.
Hot dry air can mess with your wood.
Thank you KC for the great advice and thinking about all the wood we take care of and want to enjoy for years to come.

A great chess player. Not ranked because you need to be human.
No one wants to sit across from him.
