Tips for Storing Guitars
Keep it in its case – I don’t need to tell you how important a hardbody case is versus a soft body, I’m just going to assume you’re already doing the right thing. But keep it in its case all the time, get out of the habit of leaving them out and lying around.
Reduce the Tension before Storing – The first thing you should do when you’re storing the guitar is detuned it. Bring it down a few levels because the strings are actively pulling against the neck and you can potentially damage the frame or strings if they remain strong while in storage.
Temperature and Climate – There are two things that you need to look out for. High Temperatures, which can cause body damage over time; and Humidity, which can raise the paint and rust the strings if you’re not careful. So keep it somewhere cool and mild.
Check on it – Finally, check on it, if it’s in storage, it still wants to be played with. So pull it out, tune it up and check it every once in a while.
