General Your general opinion of this product. Really not all that difficult to use. Soak it, squeeze it, dry it. Main reason I got it is because it completely blocks the soundhole in my Epi EL-00. Snug fit makes it tough to get out but at least I know I'm not humidifying the whole world, just the body of my guitar. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The material it's made of (vinyl?) seems thick enough to withstand constant use. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Haven't had it too long but has stood up to repeated bending to get it in and out of place.
Not very practical

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The humidifier is made well, but I find the design to be impractical. I've stopped using this model and have gone back to my other guitar humidifiers. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I guess the reliability is good because it's consistently a pain in the butt. General Your general opinion of this product. To use this humidifier you have to submerge the entire thing in water to soak the internal sponge. Then you have to completely dry off the exterior, which is difficult because the flaps overlap tightly, and then struggle to get it into the soundhole. Soak. Dry. Struggle. Repeating this process every couple of days for the duration of a dry northeast winter is not an appealing prospect. I'm either going to move or stick with a simpler and more practical design. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It feels nice, like the coaster at a classy casino. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Haven't learned how to make music with this thing yet but I've signed up for lessons. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Shouldn't "finish" be last? Action How was the action out of the box? "Action?" I just "finished." See above.
