    Well it's starting to get a little dry around these parts. I can tell cause my hands start getting "krusty" . I have a great guitar & I worry about "fret sprout" with winter coming on soon.What kind of humidifer works best ? Something in the case ,or should I get one for my house. I have a little guitar room 20x15. I've had some nice guitars ,but I never had thought about them being affected...but i want to protect this'n.
    thanks

    Pick up a plastic travel soap case, drill some holes in it, wet a sponge and place it inside the soap case. Put this assembly inside the guitar case with your guitar. Problem solved.

    Lentz let his wood age,but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
