For a vocalist, their voice is their most prized possession. It means that they have to nurture their voice and vocal chords from wear and tear, and follow a routine that preserves it for the rest of their career. Similarly, for a percussionist or musicians who use musical instruments in their performance, they have to extend an equal or greater care for their instruments. Musical instruments are also subjected to different weather conditions, whether you own an Ibanez guitar, Alvarez Guitar, or an Epiphone guitar. Guitars are one of the most popular musical instruments pursued both as a hobby and as a profession. The wood responds differently to each season and the sound may change as a result. So every musician must also be aware of how to take care of their guitars.
Building a long term relationship with your Guitar
- An acoustic guitar is created from thin wood. It implies that the wood responds to changes in humidity and temperature. For example, if there is a sudden increase in the temperature, your guitar is in danger of developing cracks as a result of the cold conditions it is exposed to. In other words, these are known as lacquer cracks. With increased humidity, the moisture content in the wood also increases, and as a result, causes it to expand.
- While minimal changes in the atmosphere do not have a huge impact, however, an exposure to high humidity and temperature changes will have an adverse effect on the guitar. It can weaken the bridge or glue joints.
- To prevent such issues in the future, it is important to track these variations in temperature. You can use weather instruments such as a thermometer or hygrometer to measure the humidity levels in the atmosphere.
Last, but not the least, always ensure only a professional handles your guitar should you run into any issues.
