#1: storing a carved top archtop

Posted on 2006-07-22 22:03:55 by billcoumbe

I've always owned laminate guitars, but may be about to buy my first
carved top instrument.

I've never had problems storing laminate guitars in my old house -
which can be cold in winter and hot in summer (and this week has
certainly been hot in the UK). I just keep them in the case when not in
use.

Can I do the same with a carved top instrument, or do I need to start
obsessing about air-conditioning and dehumidifiers? I hope not ...,
surely if a carved top can survive being gigged it can survive living
in a house with varying temperatures/humidity(?)

thanks for any advice

Obsess, but it's no big deal. Even a lazy git like me can manage it.

But the reason I have to do it is because I keep my guitars out on
stands. Smart advice is to do what you do - keep them in the case and
on the floor when not in use.

I offer free storage of fine instruments. All you have to do is (1) buy
the instrument, (2) ship it to me or have it shipped to me, (3) set it
and forget it. I will store yor fine guitars for life so you never have
to worry about them again.

Any solid wood guitar needs proper humidification. Get a hygrometer for
your case and a case humdifier for dry times.

I didn't obsess over my solid wood Tacoma this past winter and it cost
me; it had dried out enough that the action and playability suffered. I
had to humidify for 3 weeks. I'll be using a hygrometer this year.
