    Does your guitar sound more crisp and defined when it gets dried out? Seems the tone gets a little thuddy when mines over humidified.

    Yep, that's the nature of it. The guitar really rings when dry, and deadens when overly-humidified.

    The meter in my case says 47% right now and it sounded pretty good tonight. I guess the goal is to record that hit single just before it cracks.

    I would agree. As a rule they sound better in the winter than the summer.

    I would'nt worry about 47Rf, thats a perfect amount of RH. You really only have to worry if it gets below 35RF for any length of time

    Well, you know how a toothpick gets all squishy and soft when it's been in your mouth for a while?

    There you go...
