Well it's good that I stumbled across this thread. Talk about timing. I have just been pricing and considering buying a guitar. I'm a complete beginner ...only have spent a few months with a borrowed guitar, but thought that it would be a great addition to the cruising lifestyle. Now I'm not so sure
We currently liveaboard on the Red Sea and the climate is very dry. Deep desert... maybe 15% humidity throughout the year. But we are hoping to sail up to the Med in the future and then we would be heading for high humidity...say 80% for about half the year.
From what I'm reading, I might be better off to wait till we reach the Med before I go out and buy a guitar....
