I was so worried bout the lack of humidity in my forced-air home we took off for Florida for 3 weeks. My 'Gull and my wife's Norman are basking in Lakeland's warmth and sultry air. It'll be a shock to go home where I'll have to entrap them in cases and stick a humidifier in the sound hole.

@jud we have a humidifier on our furnace..never used, probably frozen with calcium deposits

i think i shall get an area humidifier for my guitar area in basment

...ill stand it on the dehumidifier :) I cant bear them in their cases!!!

Robert ... I'm kind of happy to see the dryer weather.  I wasn't always this way, but this past spring and summer has made me much more sensitive to the problems associated with excessive humidity (65%+), which I found much harder to deal with than the slightly low (under 40%) humidity I have now that the forced air gas heat is back on.  I haven't gone to the cases yet, but I've been running my room humidifier the past week or so, managing 45% in the area where the guitars are on stands and on the wall.

Hoosier ... that's a 2008 Fletcher Brock octave mandolin.  It's a guitar-sized instrument strung and tuned like a mandolin.

Just watched the excellent video below of Sarah Jarosz posted by Phil.  What kind of guitar is she playing, not the brand, but see it is an 8 string set up as a 12 string?  Just wondering . . .

Well,, we are snowed in here and interior humidity is hovering around 38%. In fact, humidity hasn't been in my 44-55% sweet spot for more than a week in either guitar area in the house, including my stand in the middle of my wife's forest in the living room.

I've put both Seagulls in their cases, NE Amber Trail in Tric Deluxe and S6 Cedar in standard hard case....with humidipaks.

Am i being overly cautious? After all I've not worried about the S6's  humidity levels in winter in 15 years.  It just that what happened to my original NE has got me paranoid...

For those who missed it. My original NE's neck bowed within a month and half of purchase during an extremely high humidity summer here. Seagull replaced it. Not sure if bow was caused by humidity, but I became sensitized to monitoring it, I even bought calibratable meters...

Ah, but I played the viola... ;-)

Perhaps a nice baritone guitar would add a nice sound?
