    damn, it seems like every one of my necks are moving like crazy this year. Even my painted necks (which never seem to move)
    you guys in the North east seeing this too?
    I've got my Dehumidifier running round the clock, but doesn't seem to be doing enough this year

    I'm doing fine, except for the infamous wenge neck. Everything else is staying put.

    Whilst I may have to deal with massive fuck off animals and a country trying to kill me, the conditions where I am are perfect for guitars. I touch my trussrod MAYBE once a year.

    Mine have been a little finicky this year since the temp/humidity has been ping-ponging like crazy...

    My guess is that all the snow you guys got in the northeast has saturated the ground, leading to a more humid than normal spring.

    No problems here, I just never play guitar!

    I've been ok here, but most of my playtime this spring has been on my Suhr (thicker, strat-like profile, matte-finished roasted maple neck) and my Strat (now almost a 20 year old chunk of maple, heavy vintage tint gloss finish), and both of those aren't going to budge for anything.

    My guitars have been moving like crazy, but it's been very humid here and prone to monster temperature fluctuations.

    Really, though, my guitars are all part of the global warming conspiracy.
