My son just started college and he sent me a txt that the humidity in his dorm room was "off the chart" and he is really concerned about his brand new, graduation money, Breedlove. At home I can run a room dehumidifier during the time of the year I need to but I am guessing that isn't the best option in a dorm. Does anyone have suggestions about solutions that have worked for them or not work for that matter? I just joined this discussion forum so I am hoping I am posting this correctly
My son is a Marine and I want to send a Taylor 314 acoustic with him to Okinawa where he'll be stationed for 2 years but I found out the humidity is between 60-90% most of the time. I'm wondering how that will affect the guitar if it stays in the case except when he's playing it? I'm thinking the case will protect it well enough and finding that 50% humidity is actually desirable made me feel better. I assume that they run dehumidifiers there to keep everything from getting moldy but I'm not sure if he'll be in a large barracks like a dorm or what the quarters will be. I'm also wondering how it will affect an electric guitar and amp;....maybe worse?
