Ensure your guitar's longevity with this essential maintenance routine. Start by cleaning and polishing the body, then focus on the strings, wiping them down and replacing them if worn out. Pay attention to the tuning pegs, tightening and lubricating them as needed. Inspect the truss rod, frets, and fretboard, making necessary adjustments and cleaning. Secure strap buttons and examine the electronics. Fine-tune the intonation and action, and maintain the bridge. Finally, store your guitar properly and keep it in a stable environment to preserve its quality.
