CLASSICAL GUITARS MAURO GIULIANI: PRESERVATION OF THE INSTRUMENT
Because of the hygroscopic characteristics of the wood, it is really important to protect the instrument from the changes in humidity. Deformations may occur in the case of high or low humidity levels and they may interfere with the proper functioning of the instrument; if there is a sudden lowering of the humidity level, the deformations could become permanent and cause cracks or splits.
Keep track of the humidity, using proper hygrometers. The level of relative humidity should be between 55% and 65%.
If the humidity level is too low, use a humidifier; you can find it in several shops in which they sell guitar accessories.
Avoid putting the guitar next to heat sources such as radiators, stoves, fireplaces, etc.
Avoid placing the guitar in direct sunlight for a long time, even if it is inside the case.
Humidify the guitar during long trips by car too: heating and air circulation lower the humidity levels abruptly.
Avoid the contact with surfaces which have been varnished with hard materials such as buttons and hinges.
Protect with a soft cloth every part which comes in contact with the musician's body, especially in summer.
Don't use any kind of product in order to clean the instrument: a slightly damp cloth is sufficient.
