Hi to all on the forum and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Let's hope it is and I wish you all friendship and good health.
My query concerns humidity, (sorry if this has been covered before), a subject that is a big issue in various parts of the world, particularly the USA with it's great land mass and variations in weather conditions.
I have recently noticed threads describing serious damage caused to instruments and want to protect my beloved new Avalon A32CE12 from such a fate.
My guitar is always stored in it's case and obviously, gigging here in the UK. during the cold winter months, I observe all the usual precautions; carrying the guitar in the main body of the car, not opening it up to room temerature suddenly etc., and in the summer months, avoiding contact with direct sunlight or heat etc. etc.
Here's the question
, because we (United Kingdom) are not subject to such great fluctuations in humidity and temperatures, is there a real need to be aware of any threat and as a result, any real need to employ the use of any humidifier/de-humidifier commercially available.
All opnions appreciated.
PS. I've never had a problem before, but this is my first handbuilt, all solid wood instrument!
