Like all fine instruments, Ovation guitars require periodic care and maintenance. Your instrument will perform best if it is kept clean. A routine cleaning of the instrument using a clean lint-free cloth and a light coat of quality guitar polish will keep your instrument looking and performing at its peak. Gold-plated parts should be wiped clean after each use to prevent discoloration from skin oils and acids.
Always store your instrument at room temperature, avoiding temperature and humidity extremes. The fine tone woods used in your guitar are significantly affected by these parameters. A neck warp or top crack can render any guitar unplayable. You may wish to use an affordable/small humidifier in your case to compensate for any changes in the environmental conditions.
Keep your instrument tuned to concert pitch under normal playing and storage situations. If the instrument is to be stored for a long period, reduce the string tension slightly; one or two turns of each tuning machine will be adequate.
