It's Time to Humidify Your Instrument
With colder weather comes drier air. Every year we fill up the humidifiers and keep lip balm in our pockets, but do we pay attention to our guitars? Dry conditions may spell ruin for an acoustic guitar. Bad string action and buzzing, protruding fret ends, wood cracking, top sinking, bridge lifting, and other damage to your instrument can occur. These types of repairs often require hours of labor, and in some cases, the repair cost may dwarf the cost of the instrument. However, the solution to keeping your guitar healthy is not complex or costly. Enter the humidifier.
What in the PLEK?

The PLEK is like a magic salon for your instrument. It’s capable of fret dressing, nut slotting/shaping, fingerboard work, and bridge slotting. If there was such a thing as Guitar-Narnia, this would be the wardrobe.
