I recently pulled some of my old basses/guitars out of their case for the first time in many months (some even years) and noticed rust/oxidation on a lot of the metal (even had the binding on a banjo resonator crack everywhere, and rust so bad on a guitar's strings that looked like I left it outside in the rain). What is the best way to store a bass/guitar, in the case or leave it out on a stand? Granted, I live on an island so I'm sure the humid weather and salt air comes into play. But my house is fully airconditioned and fairly cool most of the time. I keep bags of dessicant in my gig bags of basses I use to keep the strings fresh, which works great, but I'm not sure if I should put it in the cases of my vintage basses due to it drying it out too much? Any advice?
