The back of my taylor acoustic is very swollen and I notice an oscillating sound - definitely symptoms of a wet guitar. What can I do to fix this? Taylor brochure says Dehumidifier and silica gel packs could help prevent it. Is there anything I can do now?

Do exactly what the Taylor brochure says. It both prevents and fixes it.

Put the guitar in a hard case with the silica gel packs/dehumdifier. The guitar needs to be in he case because the case acts as an enclosed environment to adjust your guitar's humidity.

I have had it for 2 years now and I noticed it by the sound first and then saw the swelled back. I always keep it in the case. Ill get the gel packs and/or dehumidifier and see how that works.

What made it wet in the first place?


Probably from playing with the g string too much. hehe

That is devastatingly clever.

The back and top both have a bow to them from the factory. I just built my own guitar and the back has a 15 ft. radius curve and the top a 25 ft radius curve so the bow should be there.

^ Can you post up some pictures? That would be cool to look at.

^ Uhh... that's not exactly good advice. Plenty of people know things that the manufacturers little pamphlet doesn't even cover.
