Keep your guitar away from extremes, dont keep it in damp areas also a hardshell case is worth gettin if u havea guitar u really care about. i usually change my strings every 3 months and after im dont playin i wipe it down with a microfiber cloth.

Thanks for your helpful advise,actually somebody also told me ,A.)I should buy a guitar hanger,so that it will lessen the tension of the neck from the pull of the 6 s.steel strings,B.)so that you can always see your guitar if it needs cleaning or maintenance and it will also be a nice wall decor too...I think it all make sense,thanks,happy mylotting :-)
