1. The place to put the guitar
The place to put the guitar in a closed place anywhere, as long as it's not outdoors, let alone exposed to direct sunlight. Too hot temperatures can weaken the glue on the guitar bridge. Sunlight can also make the color paint on the guitar body crack and peel off too often.
Then, if the temperature is too cold it can also cause the wood texture on the guitar to rot for a long time. So, when cold weather comes, cover the guitar using a cloth or guitar case when the guitar is not in use.
