Are some tops more sensitive to humidity than others?

I'm looking at buying a Martin 000-15m. I'm wondering if the hog top is a greater risk to high or low humidity than a spruce top.

I'll be keeping the guitar at my lake place from April to November as we only minimally heat it during the winter. I can get humid in NW Wisc but no more so than many areas in the US. But it could be a couple of weeks at at time where I don't get up there.

Should I be concerned or just get it?

some guitars are more sensitive than others, no two pieces of wood are identical.

so it would live there through minnesota spring and fall? what's that like? if it's still cold you could stuff a guitar humidifier in it to at least reduce the drying issue.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I'd bring it home to MN for the winter just because we don't leave a lot of stuff of value up there. We have a whole house humidifier here so I don't worry about my two Taylors.
