First, the strings should be replaced one by one. The most taboo is to cut all the strings with scissors without loosening. At this time, the guitar is injured because of the instantaneous imbalance of tension. When changing the strings, we should pay attention to the protection panel, especially the rear of the bridge, which is easily scratched by the end of the strings. Attention should be paid to tie the strings so that the tension strings do not suddenly loosen and hit the panel, which can often cause more serious trauma. The tail of the string is burned with fire, which can effectively prevent the strings from slipping out. (low temperature in winter should be paid special attention to. Brittleness of wood and lacquer surface is brittle. Be careful when changing strings.
2. The high-grade guitar for climate problems uses wood, which is very easy to change physically with the weather. Generally, the humidity suitable for Guitar maintenance is about 60%, but it is still necessary to determine the range of humidity for the guitar according to the climatic characteristics of the origin. A responsible guitarist often takes the initiative to take this into account by doing the necessary processing of the wood before making it. Friends in wet areas should pay attention to the damp proof of guitars. It should be emphasized that an accurate hygrometer is provided for the guitar. There are a lot of hygrometers on the market, but very few can accurately reflect the humidity level. I have bought numerous hygrometers myself, and the humidity between them can be more than 30% different. If the hygrometer provides a number of guitar maintenance, it will undoubtedly cause serious consequences. Therefore, if a conditional friend can take the hygrometer to the local measurement unit for measurement.
3. Notice about using French Polish guitar French Polish is very weak, so special attention should be paid to maintenance. When playing, pay attention to buttons, zippers, pens and other hard things on clothes. It is strictly forbidden to nail the panel directly. If the music needs to be used, it is suggested to stick a protective film. You can buy protective films for protecting palmtop to protect panels. No nails on your left thumb, or after a while, you’ll find that the neck of the guitar has been hollowed out by your nails, seriously affecting the feel of the hand. For those who try on the piano, I suggest the ugly thing is to ask them to cut off their left thumbnails before trying on the piano. Don’t try to polish the guitar with any material, just use a piece of cloth, or add a drop of water (or use a Special polish for the guitar), use soft cloth or cotton. Avoid high temperature. High temperature can soften French paint and make it lose its luster. When you play in summer, be careful not to let the paint and sweat contact.
Fourth, the fingerboard maintenance is relatively simple, with linseed oil or olive oil, woodwind instrument oil and other maintenance can be used two or three times a year, when the new string cleaning the fingerboard, but also with cloth and a drop of water (the best use of the above maintenance oil). If the finger plate is not cleaned, the dirt will enter the entanglement of the bass string and speed up the aging of the sound quality. As emphasized earlier, the strings should be replaced one by one, so don’t remove all the strings while cleaning the fingerboard.
5. Keep the guitar away from children, pets or people inexperienced in the maintenance of the guitar. These people or animals often cause serious damage to the guitar. Pay attention to the action of holding the instrument. Do not pinch the panel. There may be no consequence in using this action on the lyre, but it is often possible to pinch the panel on a high-end guitar. Place the guitar directly back into the case when you don’t use it and fasten it so that it doesn’t fall off the case. Even if you don’t play very often, you should always get your guitar out and breathe. It’s controversial whether to slack the strings for a long time, and it’s best to slack the strings (just a second degree lower) for safety. In short, love your guitar as much as your eyes.
