Hey All,
I live in NYC and I got home from work today and decided to play a couple chords on my 620. When I got it out of the case it was freakin' hot(tempeture wise), as hot as my living room was. I live in a small apt and I can't afford to leave the a/c on all day. It's been almost 100 degrees in New York, and is going to be hot for the next few weeks. It's pretty humid out too. I'm just wondering if anyone has "maintenence" suggestions (I also have a 330). Thanks guys.

100f degrees should not hurt or change the instruments in any way. Now when you get above 120f degrees, necks can start bending from the string pressure on the instrument. Never leave an instument in a car or trunk where temps. can easily reach 140/160f. This is when the glue joins start coming apart. If you have a fan to circulate the air in your Apt. this will help keep things cooler.

Niall,

It's 37C and just brutal in Manhattan right now, so I'd love to send you my shiny new 360/12 FG VP....but....I know you're a lefty and it would be no good for you!

And my Ric is actually safely back in my air-conditioned house in Noo Joisey.

Kevin.

Actually Kevin it,s very hot here too global warming and all that stuff.

I think I will have my left hand ric soon. No need for air con so I will just stick it in the fridge.American fridge of course.
Seen as you are in nu jersoiey and the Sopranos are nearly finished will you be going for the part in the new Iroish gangaster program filming in the US soon.

Niall,

That's a new one on me. I don't think I could get the Irish accent down though. With a Canadian wife and all the years I've lived all over North America, mine is just a mess...but still with just a hint of scouse about it!

Good luck with the search for the lefty Rick. If there's anything I can do to help, just let me know.
