Care and Feeding

This instrument, like any instrument made of solid wood, will be affected by seasonal and environmental changes. Please use the included humidifier to prevent cracks during dry seasons.

This guitar has an oil based finish, which is softer than a conventional lacquer making it more prone to certain kinds of damage. (scratches, nicks, dents, etc.) To clean, use a paper towl dampened with water, or a mild ammonia solution (Windex) if neccessary. Should the finish ever become damaged due to wear and tear or accident, touch-up is easily performed by a qualified individual.
