bbelle guitar damage? (28) RE: guitar damage? 30 Sep 00

I beg to differ with you about keeping it in the case. It does offer protection and the maker of my guitar, plus different luthiers I've consulted, suggests keeping it in the case for that reason. I've subjected my Gibson to severe changes in climate and, in most instances, had neither AC or humidifier. And still no damage.

Obviously, if one's living room is perfectly climate controlled, keep it out all you want. But I agree with Midchuck and a wall hanger is the safest place to "set" your guitar and being able to just "pick it up and play," instead of always having to get it out of its case, is much more conducive.
