  1. I bought a Gibson L5 from the Custom Shop about 17 years ago and as a professional musician it has had a lot of use - I mean a lot! I have spent an extended period of time in New York recently and it really dried the instrument out, to the point the finish started flaking off the binding on the neck. The head stock is fine in the solid black areas but wherever the wood meets the inlay there is a serious unbinding of the finish. I was told by my teck to keep it at 40% humidity to stay the shrinkage. Are any of you putting a humidifier in your case or instrument to keep it happy? I move around too much to have a room that is properly humidified so I'm looking for help. Help!
