Tips on Taking Care of Guitars
Keep regular tuning
Ensure your guitar plays beautiful tunes by keeping regular fine tuning. This will also test if the strings are taut and have no flaws.
Restring if required
Regular checks will show whether you need to restring especially when it starts to loosen and play out of tune. This is the time you can correct the strings when they are wrongly put to match according to their proper tune.
Keep away from the elements
Use a nice padded case with hard shell to protect your guitar from the elements especially if you are taking it outside.
Slightly loosen strings when cleaning with a smooth cloth. Do not loosen too much, just enough to be able to run the cloth underneath each sections
Use a stand
When not in use and if you do not have a padded case, you can use a guitar stand to protect your guitar from scratches or banging on the floor or hard surfaces.
Have it serviced
If you see cracks or even if you have restring and fine tuned and still does not produce good, quality sound then go to a guitar service center and do not fix on your own. Let the professionals do the fixing to make it good as new.
