I live in South Florida. I have 288 ft on the water. My bedroom holds around a dozen of my guitars. There are more at my practice room, and more in my guest room. I have a African Grey parrot and a chow chow.
In the cool months I turn off the A.C. I am uncertain who the alligator was after, my bird or my dog. Turns out he got neither. He crashed through the screen door and entered my bedroom. He went after my guitars in a rage. I do not like gig bags, all were in a hard case. Except 2 hanging on my wall. No guitars were damaged though every case was destroyed I totally freaked. I purchased 10 new hard cases.
The moral off the story is purchase hard cases.
