Humidity & Your Guitar (Part 1 of 2)

On October 31, 2011, in Advice, Videos, by Magnolia Guitar

This past weekend, it actually snowed. And it’s still only October!

Since I had to actually turn on the heat for the first time this season, I thought I’d share this 2-part video that covers humidity, temperature and caring for your guitar in the winter.

In Part 1 below, I talk about temperature, humidity and things to consider when storing your guitar during the winter months.

In Part 2 next week, I show you how to save some money and make your own home-made guitar case humidifier for practically nothing!

One thing I don’t mention in the video is that I’m among those who prefer humidifiers that don’t go inside the guitar. When used properly, these products are safe, but some just prefer not to risk it. The humidifiers that I will show you to make next week can be placed inside the head-stock area. They work just as well, and there’s risk of water leakage inside your guitar.
