We are in an area near the coast that has nearly perfect humidity year round.
We don't have AC or a heater either.
We do pay attention to the weather, because we do have a condition here called Santa Ana winds.
These are very dry winds from the interior and can drop humidity to single digits in minutes.
Even then we usually only case the solid wood/solid top instruments. I don't much worry about the laminates.

My wife had fun arranging them for a nice visual effect.

Nothing specifically...just relying upon that nagging feeling we sometimes have, of 'just one more thing to make it perfect...'

But if it's already perfect as is, then CONGRATS and don't mind me...

As Booli has a fondness for them then just maybe a Fluke or Flea, but perhaps they would never make it from besides your chair and onto the wall if you’re always playing one.

Very nice. With wood heat and three dogs, I'd be concerned about keeping them clean. Of course, hanging them on the wall while heating with wood would be asking for trouble.
