How Do You Care for Your Guitar?
- Do not handle with oily, sweaty hands.
- Keep your instrument away from the crowd. If you're at an event, it's better to leave your guitar onstage during breaks.
- Do not use harsh cleaners and polishers. These may damage the quality of your wood and affect the sound.
