You guys have probably heard this, but in case you haven't, there's an old saying about Canada and guitars...."Canada is where good guitars go to die."  LOL.

So, ya, winter is the real challenge here.  I am very diligent in making sure that saying does not apply to me.  8-)

Thanks to our central AC, this extremely humid month of August and now early September here in North Carolina has not seen an RH over 57% inside the house.  Things are good here, although in February, I'll be humidifying like crazy, fighting to keep the RH above 30% because of forced air hear.

I'm in Ontario Canada.  "So far," even though our summers are VERY humid, it hasn't had a big enough effect on any of my acoustics to warrant me doing anything.  I keep them in their cases whenever not being played and they seem to be ok with the summer.  It's the winter and keeping them from getting thirsty that I seem to have stay on top of.

one other note.

I noticed the action on the S6 rising.. so I put a fresh silica bag in it and action settled back down within hours.

Silica bags (desiccants) are useful if you live in areas with high humidity in summer. In 15 years, I changed bag once, this summer. I expect they recover a bit during winters.

I don't recall seeing anyone talking about this method of humidity protection in here..

I can relate ... caused trigger finger in both my hands years ago by overdoing the use of post hole diggers trying to landscape the yard in our new home.  It put me out of commission with guitar for years.  Thankfully, a series of cortisone injections gave me relief and I started playing again.

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 4, 2014 at 2:27pm

gosh ,, ive been quiet lately..loads of problems ... lets catch up

i had to pack away all my guitars cept the s6 in order to finally install THE DOOR. Worked on rewired my network, preparing for the split of the computer room into computer side and studio side. Humidity as been high lately... but the S6 can take it.  Ive taken the NE Amber trail out of it's TRIC case a couple times and it  is sounding sweet. But

i've damaged both elbows repairing my side balcony. Really affects how long i can play..

'Sweetwater' is now a Seagull dealer. They have some nice photos of the ones that are in stock (which seems to be most of the lineup). Man, I wish the excursions had the 1.8 nut.

Gulls @ Sweetwater

Let's chalk it up to beginning-of-summer excitement (because I forgot about it as well).

Chuck ... Me miss something?  Not likely! Wait, what were we talking about?? :-)

Comment by Chuck Hydrick on September 3, 2014 at 4:50pm

Jud- Posted about Sweetwater/Seagull back in early July. You must've been out-of-pocket to have missed it. Sweetwater's customer service is outstanding. (At least that's been my experience.)

Greg - Very cool that you could provide some entertainment for the in-laws.

Took a Seagull NE cedar top dread out to the Appalacian mts. over the last few days, some of us had rented a house on the shore of Deep Creek Lake (MD) where the weather was mainly wet, with the exception of one fine afternoon..... some ofthe wife's family, unaware that I had ever been a guitar player or a singer..... The NE turned out to be a hit during the wet weather, it was agood thing I brought it along....
