How to Look After Your Acoustic Guitar

29 Jan 2022 0 Comments

Summer has arrived, and for many guitarists, it's time to play their acoustic instruments outside in the sunshine. Even so, with the warmer weather and all the traveling you'll be doing with your guitar, it's important to remember that your acoustic requires attention. Also, acoustic guitar repair and maintenance is one of the important parts of acoustic guitar care. Also, if you have some best guitar books, then you can get an idea of care in summer. Temperature and humidity fluctuations can impact your guitar and, in some cases, cause damage. So, how do you care for your acoustic guitar during the summer or when you're on the road? Could you continue reading for our advice?

If your car is hot, don't leave your guitar in it.

Consider your guitar to be a pet. Leaving your guitar in the car is the same as leaving your dog in the car when it is too hot. When traveling with an acoustic guitar on a hot summer day, the extreme heat inside a car can soften the wood glues and cause the bridge to come loose under the pull of the string tension. Other guitar components may even begin to separate in extreme cases. If you must leave your guitar in the car on a hot day, try to park in a shady area or use windshield shades and crack the windows.

Make use of a humidity detector.

Understanding the humidity conditions surrounding your guitar and their impact on your instrument is the first step in maintaining your acoustic guitar. Depending on where you live in the summer, it may become extremely humid outside. Running an air conditioner tends to reduce relative humidity, which can be beneficial. In either case, a digital hygrometer should be used.

If necessary, humidify or dehumidify your guitar.

Among acoustic guitar humidification products, the moisture-filled packets are designed to either release or absorb moisture to maintain a predetermined relative humidity (RH) level of 45-50 percent. In areas with high humidity year-round or during extreme weather conditions, put some silica gel packs or bamboo charcoal packs into the guitar case to absorb moisture, and replace them every few months. Another option is to remove the guitar regularly and use a hairdryer to dry the case's interior for 10 minutes.

 

If you live in a dry climate Mountain region, keep your guitar in its case and use a case humidifier (unless you have a fully climate-controlled room). Many brands also make case humidifiers that use sponges to release moisture gradually; if you choose one of these, make sure to purchase a couple of gallons of distilled water to wet the sponge so that it doesn't grow mold.

Change your strings and clean your guitar.

Warm weather causes more sweat on your guitar strings, neck, and body as you play. Keep an eye out for grime on the fretboard as you wipe down the strings. Strings can be affected by this as well, affecting their tone and ability to stay in tune. As a result, consider changing your strings more frequently during the summer months, depending on the frequency and environment you play. When sweat or finger oils collect on the strings, they can begin to rust if left on the guitar for an extended period. At best, they'll sound flat and lifeless. Changing your strings regularly is an excellent way to keep your guitar feeling and sounding new, and whenever you do, take advantage of the opportunity.

It would be best if you conditioned your fretboard.

After you've removed the strings, use a towel to cover the sound hole and clean the fretboard with.0000 gauge steel wool. Grain should be rubbed lengthwise. You can rub pretty hard on an ebony fretboard without damaging it, but don't let it touch the body. If the fretboard appears to be dry, consider applying a small amount of fretboard conditioning oil. (We recommend Taylor Fretboard oil and conditioning products, as well as boiled linseed oil.) Pour a small amount of conditioning oil onto a good microfiber cloth and apply it to each fretboard section. Before wiping away any excess, let it soak in for a few minutes. There should be no liquid visible or felt on the fretboard when finished, but the ebony should have a nice, clean shine. Dry fretboards can crack over time, so this is a great way to ensure your guitar has a long, healthy life.
