Name: Dirk Lanchester Date: 1-11-08 Review: Planet Wave Humidity-Temperature Sensor Rating: 3 - Good product give it a try
Likes: Well-made & it seems to work so far. No associated problems as in the past.
Dislikes: Having to add another accessory item to ensure the protection of my instrument.
Additional Comments: I used to use a damp sponge enclosed in a plastic bag until a mishap occured. After loaning my D-41 along with dehumidifying instructions to friend who was touring in AZ. I received my guitar back about 8 months later & the lining of the case was badly mildewed. The guitar smelled like rancid pot & had developed a fungus-like growth along the interior braces. After contacting my now ex-friend who informed me that he had used wet sponges minus the plastic bags to ensure proper humidity, I had to have the guitar repaired which included the re-gluing of various parts, a neck reset, fungicide treatment and case replacement. For some reason, the guitar never sounded quite the same. It had taken on a dull, muffled tone somewhat uncharacteristic of when I first bought it. Live & learn.
