    Re: How do you store a guitar

    The best way to store a guitar long term is definatley in the case. Zerbus brings up the most essential part of storage... Humidity. A guitar needs moisture, keep the room where they are being stored between 45 to 50% humidity. Keep a meter on the wall, you can buy one for about $20.00 at Radio shack. If it is not possible to humidify the room, then buy case humidifiers. They range in price for about 20.00 to 100.00 depending on quality. Another factor is to tune the guitar down. Don't leave the strings loose, but drop down the tension on the neck. This will minimize any potential of the neck warping!! Good Luck!!

    I'd let them inside their cases, stored in a controled temp and humidity room (under the bed is usually fine). You should also slack the strings. Hanging them on wall or stand is adding a risk of shock/dings.

    In their cases, preferably at room temperature and humidity, depending on where you are a humidier is good for anything not solid

    Apparently hanging them on a wall with central heating is a bad idea because it makes the wood crack and warp.
