Guitar Care & Maintenance


It's always a good idea to maintain your guitar as not only will it keep it's value if you decide to sell it, but it also lasts longer and keeps it sound!

TIP # 1
If you are going away, always take the strings OFF! This reduces tension and prevents it from bending or bowing at the neck

TIP # 2
Always keep it in a dry place. Once moisture gets into the wood, it dulls the sound and increases the chances of bending when pressure if placed on it

TIP # 3
Use cleaning agents on the body of your guitar. Don't sting on cheap stuff. Go for good quality cleaning agents. Polishes oils, gloss coats etc. Layer it onto your guitar. Do not let it crack or splinter.

TIP # 4
Your fingers have natural oils on them and it gets into your strings every time you play. Try to wipe your guitar strings after you finish. This prevents the oil from your fingers getting into the strings and rush appearing on your strings

TIP # 5
Always, always, always buy a case for your guitar. I know they cost money and don't seem like a worthwhile thing as you'll never bump it -- but get one. They keep your guitar in a dry place, prevent knocks, chipping as well as offer security as most guitar cases have locks on them.
