Humidity is the culprit, as you noted. I would recommend the D'addario humidipack system to bring the guitar back in line. You will have to keep it in the case for a week or two, but it is worth it. Your next step would be to humidify your home, or at least the room you keep your guitars in. 40 to 50% relative humidity does amazing things to the neck, and playability of the guitar.So I've checked the guitar and played for a few days and there doesn't seem to be any damage from the rough transport. The guitar looks and feels beautiful but still gives me a bit of a headache. Yesterday I noticed that the frets feel a bit sharp. I'm pretty sure that wasn't the case when I received the guitar a week ago. The humidity in my apartement is super low. Around this time of the year it's usually aroun 25-30 %. Can that cause the fretboard to shrink and make the frets feel sharp within a week?
Please excuse all my newbie questions. Thanks for the advice.
Thanks for all the advice a few month ago! I have now been the proud owner of a PRS SE 245 for a few month and I also have a room humidifier . To me as a total beginner this guitar seems to be absolutely perfect and I play it daily.
Now I'd like to find out which strings are on the guitar because I'd like to buy a new set. I don't know which gauge is installed or which brand / model. What seems to be distinctive is that the high and low e have metal beads at the ends and all other strings have colored plastic beads. Anyone know what kind of strings that could be ?
