Knowing basic maintenance info will help you keep your instrument in much better playing condition. Listed below are some tips for keeping your instrument in good shape.
1. Bring your instrument in at least once or twice a year for a checkup. If it needs help or not, I’ll tell you what should or could be done.
2. It’s is imperative to keep your instrument humidified during the winter season. We sell humidifiers that can fit in your instrument or the case for your instrument if your house is not humidified. It is very important to check the humidity around your instrument frequently and be sure that the humidifier has water in it- every day is a good habit. If you do that, your instrument should live a long and trouble free life.
3. We advise keeping your instrument in its case when it’s not being used. When an instrument comes in to the shop with a broken neck or headstock, it is often caused by the instrument being accidentally knocking off a stand, sliding off the wall where it was leaning, or falling off a chair or table. Laying it on the floor is not a good plan- many a foot or posterior has found its way through the top of a guitar that was left on the floor!
