Answers for Evan:
Rick Andrews, Andrews Guitar
I am probably the most picky about those things than anyone else and I
feel it should not be a problem. I have a friend who collects guitars and
has many expensive ones. He keeps his room at the prefered temperauture
and hunidity levels. Very expensive humidity equipment. This is not something
I would want to do. May sound strange but my reasoning is that the same
instruments he takes out to play at various places.
Well the places he plays does not have this environment and neither does his vehicle he carries
them in. So what happens is they are pefect until he takes therm out then he
used to bring them to me wanting me to fix them and make them stablize. I keep
my instruments in average home conditions in temp around the 70 degree range
and let the hunidity do what it will. I set them up to average conditions
so if I go anywhere they will be fairly close to that average range. That way
they won't move out as far or so extreme from normal and also I believe if
they are made with the quality they should be then it will balance without
going too far from the normal.
I actually try to build my guitars for my clients at same conditions they will be
used in as much as possible. They hold up well that way. If I were going to fly over the ocean salt water
and extreme damp areas or especially take a boat on the ocean then I would use
a well insulated flight case with a built in humidifier but otherwise I
would not worry too much.
A good instrument should be able to take it.
