MOST WOODEN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS INCLUDING GUITARS NEED TO BE KEPT IN AT LEAST 50% HUMIDITY. WOOD EXPANDS AND CONTRACTS. IF IT CONTRACTS TOO MUCH ALL KINDS OF BAD THINGS HAPPEN. A HUGE PART OF OUR REPAIR BUSINESS (UNFORTUNATELY) IS FIXING OR ADJUSTING GUITARS THAT HAVE GOTTEN DRIED OUT. WE SEE A LOT OF NECKS THAT HAVE SHRUNK OR WARPED, TOPS THAT HAVE CRACKED OR FINISHES THAT HAVE CHECKED, ACTION OR PLAYABILITY THAT HAS BECOME TOO LOW OR HIGH ALL DUE TO DRY CONDITIONS. UNFORTUNATELY MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTIES DO NOT COVER DAMAGE CAUSED BY DRYING OUT. THIS TIME OF YEAR 50% HUMIDITY IS HARD TO COME BY. THE COLD DRY AIR OUTSIDE IS USUALLY IN THE 10% - 30% HUMIDITY RANGE AND THE DRY HEATING SYSTEMS OF MOST BUSINESSES, WAREHOUSES, SCHOOLS, CHURCHES, HOMES, ETC. DRIVES THE HUMIDITY LEVELS DANGEROUSLY LOWER. We can repair most cracks and solve action problems with various levels of set-up services. We do not refinish guitars.
