Q: How do I care for my new Lentz Guitar?

A: Your new Lentz® Custom Handcrafted Guitar will give you years of enjoyment, and we recommend the following to keep your guitar playing its best:


  • Never leave your guitar in direct sunlight or near a heat source, and NEVER leave it in the trunk when the weather is warm, even when driving. The temperature inside a trunk in Summer can quickly climb to well over 100 degree. Remember, if you would be uncomfortable, so would your guitar!
  • When not playing your guitar, keep it either in the original case, or in a suitable alternative case.
  • Always wipe down your guitar after playing. We recommend a clean, soft 100% cotton cloth. Rub only lightly, just enough to remove sweat and dirt.
  • Don’t allow your guitar to get wet.
  • Never leave your guitar unattended when out of the case, especially when around children or groups of people.
  • Always have your guitar worked on by a quality luthier you trust.
  • Always feel free to contact Lentz Guitar with any questions!
