Care and Maintain of Acoustic Guitar

A regular care and maintain the Acoustic Guitar is a good practice. The benefits are better life span and performance. You need to properly polish your guitar, restring it, re-tune it, etc.The basic rule is to keep the guitar in the hard-case after each usage. The Acoustic Guitar is protected from sunlight and the case can offer more protection from severe and sudden environmental changes. Store your guitar in a somewhat temperate, moderately dark and slightly humid area. It is ideally, humidity should be kept around 50% and above in Singapore.

2]. Clean the Acoustic Guitar Regularly

Clean or polish at least once a week. If you have a black guitar, you should clean after use for purely aesthetic reasons: this will get rid of finger grease.
For high quality Acoustic Guitar, it is highly advisable to wipe the neck off after each use, as grease builds up on the neck and can slow down the speed that your fingers can move up and down the neck. Always use a polish bought from a guitar shop and polish it with a dry soft cloth. Do not use alcohol, solvent, insecticides, citric acids and silicone. This can damage the Acoustic Guitar.

3]. Keep the Acoustic Guitar in Room Temperature

Guitars are made of thin wood panels which can be affected by extreme temperatures. If it has been exposed to very high (summer heat or hot car) or very low (snow) temperatures, the best you can do is to let it dry at room temperature. Glue joints can soften if left in extremely high temperatures for an extended period of time, another reason it's a good idea to loosen the strings a bit and reduce tension. Exposure to high humidity can open the glued ends and causes the Acoustic Guitar to swell. Very low temperatures can cause the finishes such as lacquer to cracks.

4]. Care of the Acoustic Guitar Strings

Strings are the life and essence of the Acoustic Guitar.
Usually, the set of springs that came with the new guitar will give you a reasonable good result. After a year of usage, the sound does lack clarity and becomes muffled. The moisture and the finger grease causes the strings to corrode which affects the sound quality. If you replaced that one string which is giving trouble is not ideal. Always replace the entire set to avoid the unbalanced sound. Replace each set of springs at least once a year.

5]. Waxing the Acoustic Guitar's finishes

Waxing your Guitar's finish is a good practice. Having a coat of wax on the finish not only makes it look shiny but it makes it easier to clean and gives the finish a slippery feel. Also waxing the back of a glossy neck may create less drag and friction on your fretting hand. Always avoid using anything that contains silicon.

6]. Travelling with the Acoustic Guitar

Guitar needs a lot of care and even more if you are travelling.
Travelling by car is best to place the guitar at the back seat to has ventilation and avoid too much sunlight.
If you are flying, a hard-case will be best. Not all airlines are instrument friendly and is better to talk to them while checking-in about the fragile nature of the guitar and the need of handle with care.
