The Guitar Emporium Stock Storage
All of The Guitar Emporium instruments have been stored at room temperature since having been landed in the UK for a period of 2 months before being set-up. Room temperature does not drop below 17° Centigrade (64° F) nor rise above 28° Centigrade (82° F). If they have been set-up and stored they will have been de-tuned (to protect neck adjustment) with silica gel packs added to the box to avoid any condensation. Those that arrive to you in tune will have been set-up and shipped within 3 days so will not have the gel in the box. This is how guitars have been packed and stored since the 1950s. This attention to packing and storage is generally only with guitars retailing at more than GBP1000.
