Your guitar is made of organic matter, susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity. Wood is always in motion, It contracts and expands. In addition, it will absorb external particles such as mineral salts, smoke, sweat, and other elements.
How to care for your guitar.
1.- Do not subject your guitar to sudden changes in temperature, always travel with thermal cases, and never, but never leave it under the sun, air conditioning, or heating.
2.- To avoid Cracks, and” frets growing” the ideal percentage of relative humidity should be between 40% and 65%.
3.- Replace your strings before you feel they are “Dead “, your guitar will get used to those lower vibrations and will never reach its full potential.
4.- Change your strings one by one. Avoid the sudden loss of tension in the bridge and the top.
5.- If you are going to travel by plane, loosen the strings a bit and never check it in without having a suitable case.
6.- Clean the strings every time you finish using them, you will increase their useful life and prolong their shine.
7.- Clean your guitar with a microfiber cloth, or use a lightly damp cotton cloth. Use ONLY approved cleaning products that leave a protective barrier against sweat and dust.
8.- We recommend using protective lenses for at least 6 months after your guitar was built to avoid damage to the varnish.
9.- Oiling the machinery once a year if necessary. Make sure to dry the residual oil.
10.- If you are not playing for a while, leave it IN the case, and close it properly. You don’t want your guitar “flying” when picking up the case!!??
