Installing a pickup to allow the guitar to output external speakers is not a patent for electric guitars. Acoustic guitar pickups are generally divided into four types: ringhole, lower string pillow, microphone and suction cup. For more information on pickups, see how to pick a guitar pickup.
9. Dehumidifier and desiccant
Because the guitar needs to be kept at a certain humidity, the tone can be kept stable, so it is often necessary to maintain the ambient humidity. The desiccant can be placed in a guitar bag or in a guitar case to reduce the humidity of the guitar. The dehumidifier can be placed indoors to directly reduce indoor humidity or maintain dryness. The best humidity for the guitar is 45 to 55%.

Cracked, but because the hand sweat that flows during the playing of the piano is still moisture for the fingerboard, it may cause the wood to expand and deform for a long time. Therefore, if the oil is not compatible with the fingerboard oil, the fingerboard and the neck will naturally be protected from deformation. Or split open.
12. String oil
Because the guitar strings are exposed to the humidity of the air and the fingers for a long time, if you do not change the strings for a long time or wipe the strings after each practice, the strings may be moldy and rusted. If you change the strings, first apply a string on the strings. A thin layer of string oil can make the string less rusty and prolong the life of the string. However, if the string is too rusty, the string oil does not help much. It is recommended to change the string directly to the guitar.
