I live in the mountains in a desert area (not US) in a one room apartment.

In winter, the temperatures here vary from 4-10 celcius, with over 70% humudity. In summer, the temperatures are between 30-40 with humidity dropping easily under 40%.

I don't have an air conditioner, so in the summer my windows stays opened, and in winter I heat my room with those small heating fans.

So far, I have an all laminated classical guitar and 2 electric guitars (93 LP Studio and CS Strat). The classical guitar is always out on a stand, while the two electrics, when not played goes back to their cases.

Now I want to buy an acoustic guitar. I was thinking about a solid top and maybe even a full solid guitar (Taylor GS Mini, Seagull S6, Seagull Maritime, Gibson J15). However now I am concerned that they won't withstand my living conditions.

I don't want to use humidifiers. Nothing wrong with them and I do take good care of the items I own, but at the end I don't want to be a slave to them. I don't want to be constantly checking the humidity % and stuffing the guitar case with humidifiers.

So my question is, can any of the listed above guitars survive a "casual" treatment? If not, which guitars do you think will be better for the job?

    The outside temperature is somewhat academic. Unless you play alfresco. The temperature the guitar endures is of far more importance. As is inside humidity. – Tim Dec 31 '18 at 16:42
  • Comments are not for extended discussion; this conversation has been moved to chat. I'd suggest you follow Tim's guidance and focus on temp and humidity indoors - can you edit that into your question. That will hopefully stop it getting closed. – Doktor Mayhem Jan 3 at 19:01
