Out of Production Martin Guitars: In this episode, we'll be discussing some of our favorite Martin Guitars that are no longer in production. The OM-28 Marquis, D-18VS, HD-7 Roger McGuinn - they're all here - and more! Special thanks to our loyal listener Jeff, for suggesting this topic. Sit back & relax as Maury & Spoon get their "out of production" chat on.
Humidity & Your Acoustic Guitar: Today, we'll be discussing humidity and acoustic guitars. If your guitar is constructed of tonewoods, this episode is for you. Unless you have a carbon fiber instrument, your acoustic guitar needs to be in a healthy environment when it comes to temperature and relative humidity. Too dry, and the wood can crack. Too damp, and the wood can swell. What does it all mean? We'll explain.
