The most important thing you can do for your new guitar is keep it properly humidified.
Acoustic guitars are sensitive to changes in humidity, especially during winter months, and for this reason we recommend using an instrument / case humidifier to maintain the proper humidity level (around 45-50%).
While room humidifiers help make your space a bit more comfortable, they may not provide enough humidity for your guitar which is why we specifically recommend using an instrument / case humidifier.
Conversely, if you live in a very humid area, consider using a dehumidifier or moisture-absorbing packets in your guitar case to prevent over-humidification.
6. Professional Setup
At least once or twice a year - the transitions from summer to winter and winter to summer are good times - take your guitar to a professional luthier or guitar technician for a full setup. They can adjust the neck, bridge, and other components to ensure optimal playability, and, catch any issues before they become costly (a drying guitar can result in top cracks, bridge lifting, etc…).
