Guitar Habitat® Humidity Controlled Guitar Cabinets
Guitar habitat

The Guitar Habitat®

The Guitar Habitat® has been specifically designed to preserve your instruments, while keeping them close at hand for easy access.  Each cabinet displays the instruments beautifully in the glow of rheostat controlled LED lighting. Cabinets are lined on the floor and back with aromatic cedar, which wicks moisture, and aids in stabilizing the humidity level in the cabinet.

Humidifiers are hidden beneath the floor of the cabinet.   Dehumidifiers are small ionic membranes installed in the back wall of the cabinet that operate without a water tank. A single controller manages both the humidifier and dehumidifier. Guitars rest on cork, with the weight of the instrument on the lower bout rather than the neck.   Guitar necks are secured and cushioned with cork.  Neck rest systems can be ordered with or without a handmade latching system. All glass is tempered safety glass.  Doors come with heavy duty hinges, and keyed locks.

The Guitar Habitat® comes in standard sizes of 32”, 40”, 49″ and 63” wide as well as modular and custom sizes.  The small, medium, medium-large and large sizes hold approximately four, six, seven and ten guitars.  The size of your instruments, and your preferred positioning of the instruments in the cabinet may vary from these numbers. A modular version of the 32” cabinet is available that can grow in 32″ increments to handle very large collections. We’ve also done a few modular versions of the 40″ cabinets, but it is a custom order only.

Features & Benefits

Construction: We build all our products in our workshop near Perkasie, PA.  We buy raw unfinished wood from the saw mill, finishing materials, and hardware.  Nothing is “pre-fabricated”. We do not use veneer. All cabinets are solid cherry, oak, maple or walnut.

Wood: We have solid American black walnut, cherry, oak, sapele or maple construction throughout.  We hand select our wood.  Our American black walnut and cherry are from Bucks County, Pennsylvania and are the best examples of these woods available.  Our climate controlled cabinets are lined with aromatic cedar. Cabinets have hand made wooden seals to keep the moisture in. The only plywood used is a hardwood plywood used for the back of the cabinet and is specially treated to provide an enhanced vapor barrier.

Securing your guitars: Guitars rest on wooden rails topped with unfinished cork which will not mar the finish in any way.  Guitar necks rest against a shelf with cork lined cut outs for the necks.  An optional neck rest shelf is available that includes our Neck-tie™ system to lock the necks in place with a magnetic lock.

Humidifiers and dehumidifiers: Our standard humidifier on orders received after October 1st, 2014 is a one gallon humidifier in all our cabinets. Frequency of refill will depend on the size of your cabinet and ambient humidity level in your room, but typically the humidifier will need to be refilled every two to five weeks.  We also offer a auto-fill humidifier that can be connected to your home or studio water supply.

Our dehumidification system is exclusive to our cabinets.  It is membrane based and mounted on the back wall of the cabinet.  The membrane system removes humidity from the cabinet and pumps the excess humidity into the room air via an ionic process.  The dehumidification system was originally developed for high-tech and museum display case applications.  Unlike traditional dehumidifiers, there is no water supply to empty.

Glass: Our glass is tempered and available in standard or as an optional upgrade in low E UV protected tempered glass.   We use only tempered glass as it is more clear than laminated glass.  Note that while UV rays are effectively blocked by low E glass, other light rays outside the UV spectrum can still fade your guitars.  We recommend not putting guitars in constant direct sunlight, even when protected with low E glass.

Testing: We fully assemble your humidified guitar cabinet and run it continuously for 72 hours before shipping it to you.  We verify the humidity level displayed with a labratory grade test instrument.

Finishes: Our standard finish is a hand rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer as is used on the finest guitars and mandolins.  We apply at least six coats of lacquer, and have a 24 step finishing process.  It provides a beautiful finish, and one that can be repaired should you ever encounter damaage to the finish in your home or studio.

Hardware:We offer a number of hardware choices, but customer provided hardware is an option.  We have heavy duty hinges that are adjustible.  All cabinets come with a lock.  On single door cabinets, you can hang the door on either side.

Exterior finish choices:

We offer American Black Walnut, Cherry, Oak and Maple.  These are generally available in our local area in Eastern Pennsylvania.  We work with local arborists who remove trees downed in storms and trees that need to be removed at the owners request.  All our wood is aged for a year, and then kiln dried to prevent warping. We often get asked what the “best” wood is.  There is no good answer to that.

These woods are great, but any good hardwood is a potential candidate for your cabinet.  If you prefer Mahogany, Flame Maple, or other exotics, or vintage woods, we are happy to work with you.  We also have a stash of wood that is the prettiest (in our opinion) that we get.  We usually hold this wood for custom cabinets or special editions. We recommend natural finishes.  If you want a dark cabinet, we recommend American Black Walnut.  If you want a medium color wood, Cherry is beautiful, and for light cabinets, natural Maple is a wonderful light colored wood.  These woods will change over the years.  Walnut tends to lighten,  Cherry tends to darken, and Maple will darken a bit as well.  We think the patina of a beautifully aged cabinet is like the patina on a vintage guitar…there is nothing prettier.  We will stain your piece if you want, and will do our best to match the samples we send you, but stains react differently based on the tree and grain, so it’s difficult to know exactly how your piece will look when stained. Every tree is unique!  We are happy to send out finish samples.  We make these in the shop using our finish materials.  However, keep in mind every tree is different, so the samples only give an approximation of what the wood on your cabinet will look like.  We hand select our wood.  Let us know if there is something special you’re looking for.

Interior finish choices:

The inside of the Guitar Habitat® cabinet is lined with cedar on the floor and back of the cabinet. On glass backed cabinets, only the floor is cedar. Just as with a cigar humidor, the purpose of the cedar is to wick in moisture and help stabilize the inside of the cabinet at your desired humidity level. When you open and close the door to the Guitar Habitat®, the cedar along with the humidifier, get the interior of the cabinet back to the desired humidity level very quickly.

We offer two types of cedar. We’ve always offered a tongue and groove aromatic red cedar mounted on a laminated wood back for the back of the cabinet, and mounted on Poplar subfloors for the floor of the cabinet. The aromatic cedar varies in color from almost purple to reddish brown, and fades to a reddish brown over time. It also has white stripes in the wood. It’s what you saw in Grandma’s cedar chest.

We now also offer a Spanish Cedar back and floor. The Spanish cedar comes already mounted on laminated wood, and has a very smooth, warm look.

You have your choice of either wood included in the price of all of our Guitar Habitat® cabinets.

Dowel ends

Your cabinet will have dowels showing where each piece of wood is joined together.  These are beautiful appointments to the cabinet.  We use dowels that are “end grain”, so they are usually darker than the cabinet cross grain wood on the tops, front and sides. You have a choice in dowel woods.  Using the same wood as your cabinet (Cherry dowels on Cherry cabinets) will provide a subtle difference in the woods.  Using Walnut dowels on Cherry cabinets , or Cherry dowels on Walnut cabinets provides a beautiful contrast, and enhances the hand crafted look of your piece.

Hardware selections:

These are the options we currently stock for our cabinet hardware.  These handles and pulls are a dark bronze color, and are high quality.  If you prefer to select your own hardware, or want us to pick something unique we’re happy to work with you.  We want you to love your cabinet as much as you love the musical instruments in it. You can make your hardware selection at any time prior to the last few weeks of production.

Optional enhanced Interior Lighting

Every Guitar Habitat® comes standard with LED lighting and a rheostat, but some customers have asked for additional lighting. The standard LED lights are mounted behind the upper door seal. Additional lights can be installed under the neck rest and behind the lower door seal. All these lights are controlled by the standard rheostat. Additional lights are $300 for the installation under the neck rest and $300 for the lights on the lower door seal. The combination of both can be ordered for $500.

The optional Neck-Tie™ neck rest

The Neck-Tie™ neck rest was designed to secure all the guitars in the neck rest using an internal wooden lattice that enables the owner to close a wooden guard across the front of the neck rest opening. The wooden lever on the right of the neck rest in the photo above operates the Neck-Tie™ by opening and closing the neck rest guard.

Two styles of Neck-Tie™ are available. The standard Neck-Tie™ is available as a stand alone upgrade to the Guitar Habitat®. It varies in size and price depending on the size of the Guitar Habitat® ordered. The standard Neck-Tie™ is built in the wood matching the cabinet. Walnut cabinets receive an all walnut Neck-Tie™, cherry cabinets receive an cherry Neck-Tie™, etc.

The version shown in the photo above is the premium Neck-Tie™ that is part of our Superior Interior package. In includes figured and contrasting woods. This version is only available as part of the Superior Interior package.

Like our standard neck rest the Neck-Tie™ is lined in cork to protect the finish on your instruments. Mandolin, ukulele, and fiddle neck rest inserts can be used with the Neck-Tie™.
