Care and maintenance of your new instrument:
Cleaning and polishing will help protect your Lyric instrument. Avoid polishes that contain silicones. Any polish should be applied sparingly with a soft cloth using a circular motion. Final polishing should be done with a second clean, soft cloth.
Warm weather precautions: Excessive heat and low humidity are your instrument’s biggest enemies. Keep your instrument on a stand or in its case in well-tempered area. Do not expose your instrument to direct sunlight for long periods or leave it in a vehicle on hot days.
Cold weather precautions: Guard your instruments against winter’s freezing temperatures and dryness. Keep your instrument in its case during winter and allow it time to warm up slowly in the case it has been cold. Regulate the humidity in your home if possible as excessive moisture or dryness will damage your instrument, affect tonal quality and instrument life.
(For guitars) Setting the action: Maintaining the correct action of your new instrument involves a balance of neck tension, nut height and saddle height because of the complex nature of neck and nut adjustments, it is highly recommended that these adjustments be made by a qualified technician.
(For guitars) Changing strings: In order to provide optimum tuning and performance, specific procedures for string changes should be followed. Strings should be replaced one at a time to maintain equal bridge and neck tension at all times. With ball end seated in the bridge, bring the string through the nut and then through the machine head hole. Pull the string upward and begin turning the machine head. The first few winding will wrap the string snug against itself. Continue to bring the guitar into with further tensioning of the machine head tuners. Trim the excess off with wire cutters. Take care to protect your eyes during the string changing process.
