  • Which is worse for guitars: heat/humidity or cold?

    I realize neither would be the best option, but I in which of the two extremes guitars would fare better.

    Taylor says dry is worse it'll crack the wood eventually. They have an article on their site.

    Aye, like matt_v says, sudden changes in temperature is probably one of the worst scenario's for your guitar. Like pulling it out of the case in a warm room when the temperature of the guitar is still freezing from it being stored in a cold climate for some time (applies only when the owner of the guitar knows what snow is).

    yes, humidity is better. however, the WORST is a drastic, sudden change between the two. that'll kill the wood.

    Im thinking humidity is... within reason, good for them.

    It's the dry cold you have to be careful for... it causes the wood to dry out and crack and..

    I have no idea I'm just talking out my ass.

    I think heat and humidity is worse, but not sure.
