Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?

Bought a Guild 12 string years ago but my son confiscated it.
I do have a 1966 Guild D-50 that is one of my treasures. It's a cannon. My friends are lined up to inherit it.

Thanks man. It definitely looks better on the net than it does in real life.

Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?

I have a Santa Cruz Cowboy Singer, and I love it so much I cannot bear to go without it. So it is coming with me, and I will just do the best I can to manage humidity issues.

Gotta have a good Guitar when you have a beautiful beach and a beautiful Margarita!

I was so bad that I haven't played since '64 but I found this funny. United breaks guitars You Tube.

Thunder:
You young guys!
Humidity is not the enemy of guitars. Lack of humidity is.

I've grown tired of trying to explain this.
I live 100' from the water, in the PNW where it rains all the time. My guitars love it here.
If you live in Palm Springs you will have a problem.

But have it your way.

Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?

I try to play, I am not good, but it isn't dry or wet it is change that eats guitars.
Perhaps salt water spray is as bad for guitars as it is for everything else I don't
know, but a 12 string sings.

I have carried a guitar from Abq to Montreal and she sang until some xxxxx stole her.

Desert:
I think you are right. It's big swings in temp and humidity that can hurt an axe. But on Puget Sound I don't have that to wiorry about.

Salt water spray is bad for anything. You could try Gortex coated, Elixar (sp) strings but I would never subject any guitar to salt water spray.

Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?

a baby Martin is easier to store and pull to the cockpit to play and black is just cooler. Great sound and easier to play than full size guitar.

Those Little Martins are great for boats. My next boat guitar will be that size and very similar in construction.

It's "Little," by the way, or anything with a designation starting with L (like an LX1 or LXM model). "Baby" is for the Baby Taylor, which I think is a much better guitar in the abstract, but not as well suited for boat use as the Martin since the Taylor uses a lot more real solid wood.
