Ask Bob: Guitar in a Hot House

Wednesday, December 21, 2011
By: Bob Taylor

Question: I am aware of taking care not to leave a guitar in a hot car, but we are in the midst of record heat. As I type this my Taylor 555 is sitting next to me in my home at 93 degrees and 70 percent humidity. How hot does it need to get in a house to damage a guitar?

Answer: A lot hotter than that, Jeff. A lot hotter. A car can get up to 180 degrees in the back window. I've measured! But keep your guitar in its case when you don't play it.
