For most people, an electric guitar isn’t just an instrument, it’s a piece of art, culture, personal history and – if you look after it well enough – an investment. Cleaning and properly maintaining your electric guitar isn’t just a suggestion, it’s an absolute must.
Cleaning an electric guitar isn’t just about giving it the occasional wipe down, though. Guitar players need to learn about how to care for the instrument and ensure it’s maintained as well as the day it was first made.
While I know it’s true that the primary purpose of my guitar case is to protect my guitar, sometimes it seems that it serves to fulfill a more important role: providing pockets and compartments for my guitar equipment.
Some of the guitar equipment is small and light while some is bulky. Some is cheap while some is a bit more expensive. Some guitar equipment I use each time I open my case and some are there for a rainy day.
Regardless of how often I use this guitar e, however, I have never regretted having them available at that critical moment when I needed it.
An acoustic guitar can be a beautiful work of art in addition to being a wonderful sounding musical instrument.
There are a few things that can help the lifespan of your guitar that you may not have thought about when you first made the purchase. The protection of your guitar is very important and, unfortunately, is often overlooked by many guitarists out there. Taking the extra step can really make all the difference in the world for your guitar. The list of different destructive forces your guitar might encounter is endless, anything from animals to weather can be a factor.
Perhaps you’re a beginner guitarist who has never heard of a guitar humidifier or maybe you’ve been playing for a little while and are quite familiar with what it is and why you would need to use it.
For those who want to take care of the investment they call an acoustic guitar, a guitar humidifier is not optional, it’s a must.
Below I want to share with you why a guitar humidifier is so important, the difference between using a guitar humidifier and a room humidifier and finally some recommendations on the humidifiers that I have used in the past.
