Water Water Everywhere...

...hopefully in your guitar, too!

Yes, it's that time of year again to humidify your guitars. Wakefield Music stocks the Oasis and Planet Waves guitar humidifiers that we use on our own instruments and you should, too. So watch those hygrometers and if you see moisture levels dropping below 40%, it's best to start up your machines at home and/or put a humidifier in your acoustic guitar right away. You'll know it's time when new fret buzzes appear, fret ends on unbound necks stick out and feel sharp, and tops 'sink' or warp affecting action and possibly split or the finish 'crazes'.

We Had Twins!

Taylor 114's that is:

It's hard to believe you can buy a full scale Taylor guitar made in North America with a solid top and ebony fretboard and bridge for under $500!

And yes that's a '14 Gibson LG-2 (w/pickup) behind them just in last week. ;)

If you haven't heard the rumors, these Taylor 562ce 12-string guitars with their 5-series sized bodies and 12-fret neck join are twice as fun as their bigger brother 12-strings.
