1- The Guitar Setup is Already Build Up 

You may think while buying a guitar that it comes already adjusted and sounding its best. But that’s not the fact. Every time you buy a new guitar, it properly needs a complete set up by an expert or professional guitarist or musician to give and sound its best.

Especially when you order a guitar online and get it delivered, you must build up its setup because the manufacturers and online dealers do not have enough time to give every outgoing product personalized attention.

2- Heavy or Thick Strings are for Newbies

Most beginners liked going for heavy or thick strings without knowing the real fact. If you want to become a pro at playing the guitar forget about heavy guitar strings, particularly when you are at your learning stage.

You should install the lightest strings available as they make practising easier for you. Additionally, thin strings are less painful as compared to thick ones. However, you can gradually move to the thicker strings once you build your hand strength and calluses.

3- Using Improper Type of Strings

Another overlooked fact about guitars is using the wrong type of strings from a specific guitar. Being a guitarist, you may know that string sets have two major types: steel and nylon-string sets.

In steel-string sets, all the strings are made of metal, while in nylon or classical guitar strings, the upper 3 strings are made up of nylon, and the lower 3 are of metals. Remember that you can’t put steel-string on a Classical guitar because it may not handle the higher string tension created by the set of steel acoustic guitar settings.

4- Environmental Conditions

Do you know that ignoring environmental conditions like temperature and humidity can ruin your guitar? Whenever you buy a mid or high-priced guitar that you think will last for years, don’t hesitate to spend some amount on a humidifier or dehumidifier.

Your instrument will do its best at a relative humidity of 45 to 55%. So, this little extra investment will protect your guitar and increase its life. You have to buy a humidifier or dehumidifier depending on the type of climate you live in, whether dry or wet.
