When you buy a guitar, you buy the problems too.
 
Most guitar lovers are preoccupied with the enjoyment of playing their guitars to notice the creeping effects of these inherent problems.
 
Physical changes to acoustic guitar, a.k.a. distortion caused by high moisture content in wood are mostly discovered during guitar repairs. It has been a chronic issue that plagued the pleasure in guitar playing. We are guitar lovers therefore we understand the problems with "WET" acoustic guitars.
 
Wood is hygroscopic, a.k.a. it absorbs moisture naturally. This unavoidable phenomenon will result in dimension changes to the bodies of acoustic guitars. The eventuality is reduction in the performances of acoustic guitars.
 
We spent years seeking for a dedicated solution to deal with it because we found no proper solution available. Only limited privileged individuals who can afford the "up-scaled" treatments were exception to this issue.
 
Therefore determining the Holy Grail to deal with "WET" acoustic guitars has become our obsession. We began our initial step from researching the Science of Wood Drying.
 
In 6 parts, we brought to you our accummulated efforts in comprehending this wonderful yet challenging process.
