"Hey Andy, you should try living on a Scottish Island, like i did years ago, trying to keep any guitar, ( in my case, three Acoustics) from splitting apart, or disintegrating with the dampness endemic on the West Coast was a nightmare, didn't…"

"I always put my guitars back in their cases after playing them, I look after my Instruments, I'm a bit fussy about leaving them out-but then I don't have a room, which I could use solely for the purpose of playing guitar, then maybe I…"

"I'm glad it's not such a bad picture as I painted and it all looks to be an improving situation. Good luck."

"Cool. Glad you liked them and happy to share. They look even better in person and you will be happy when you see how nicely they hold the guitar."

"Unless you live in a really DRY environment I would say storage on a stand is the best because out of sight out of mind. The idea is to have the guitar out and easy to pick up and play. Even if you insist on storing in the case, you still should…"

George Worthmore replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"An instrument is safer in its case. I remember reading about a concert violinist who was performing with a Stradivarius on loan from a wealthy patron. One of the stipulations in the loan agreement was that when not in the hands of the violinist it…"

"My wooden guitars live in their cases in my temperature and humidity controlled guitar room/studio/spare bedroom. My carbon fiber guitars have only seen the inside of a case when they were brought home or when I travel with them."

Stuart Mono replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"I find that different guitars react differently to humidity conditions. I have a luthier built guitar that reacts quite a bit to humidity changes. I had to put two humidifiers in the case to get enough moisture during the winter months to maintain…"

Paolo Damiani replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"Like most said, it's largely a matter of humidity control. That said, I know that the guitar on a stand or hangar gets played a lot more than one in the case - at least for me. Of course, it's safer in the case, however, I'm not…"

"both my martins got humidity cracks last year, due to the low humidity. managed to fix them with tight bond, but now the humidifier goes all fall and winter, whenever the heat is on. case or wall makes no diff--it's the humidity."

Jim Murphy replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"I bought a Larrivee 0M3 RE in the summer. I live in Vancouver and had occasion to take it to the factory as the pick up did not work properly. While they were working on it I got a tour of the shop. Since the manual has so much detail on humidity I…"

Undefined People replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"Use both case or stand depending on circumstance. In an environment where temperature and humidity is constant and controlled, I see no problem with leaving my guitar on a stand. I especially do this if I'm interrupted and know that I will…"

David Casseres replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"According to my local luthier, I don't need to worry about humidifying my guitar in this climate (Palo Alto, CA). So I hang my Breedlove on the wall on a guitar hanger, where it is well out of harm's way but I can just stick out my arm and…"

David Fairbanks replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"I say keep it out on a stand for convenience. I keep most of mine in their cases, and have a few out for playing, sort of in rotation. Keeps things…"

"I'm new to guitar and this forum and I apologize for not yet reading this thread thoroughly, but I will with interest! Having said that, I have two Godin guitars, a LaPatrie nylon string and the new one, a Seagull M series mini jumbo. I was in…"

Rick Riedel replied to Jim Choe's discussion In the case or on a stand?
"I live in Arizona. The indoor humidity often is at 1%. We have to go to great lengths to hydrate the instrument. I have a Planet Wave humidifier that goes down into the sound hole. I also have an Avion in-case humidifier that has some gel in it that…"
