    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.
