Winter is hard. It’s long and it’s cold.
Guitars don’t like winter. They can’t ski. They can’t skate. And they can’t do that New England thing where you heat up the maple syrup and pour it on the snow.
Guitars, when they are not in your loving hands, tend to want to snuggle up for the winter, in a nice hard case or gig bag, preferably with a little humidification.
Seriously, though, winter can be a challenge for guitars, especially acoustic guitars. And a little knowledge can go a long way in keeping your instrument safe, happy and ready for the next playing session.
Winter air, even in sunnier climes, can be a bit dry. Up north, it’s just frightful, with enough moisture pulled out of the air to sting the nose and create static charges as you walk along the carpet.
The simple way to fight that, for both you and your guitar, is through humidification.
