Stupid question, but should I leave the desiccant bag in my guitar case or throw it away?

I suggest keeping it in there.

Moisture + guitar = bad.



Not always, if its extremely dry then moisture is needed

Where are you from TS? and how's the humidity?

I'm also from Wales, mate, so I know what you mean.

As long as the guitar's stored indoors, in a place with fairly constant temperature and humidity, you don't need to leave the dessicant in the case. They put that in to keep the case from getting damp inside it during transit (factory to shipping container to warehouse to lorry to music shop) - that's a lot of temperature changes, which can cause condensation, and then the case can get mildewed, producing the dreaded "stinkcase" phenomenon.

But if you keep the guitar in your room or wherever, it'll be fine. Even in gloomy, cold old Cymru.
