    Hey all,
    Heading away for work for 6-7 months.

    Guitars are getting packed up in hardshell cases and put in a big closet downstairs.

    What do you guys recommend for my deluxe reverb and Marshall 15CR?

    FWIW I do not currently have covers for either.

    Make sure downstairs is not too humid. Mold loves humidity.

    I just used an old bed sheet just for dust cover during many years

    I have a dehumidifier in there now. I live in Ontario Canada, our winters are typically pretty dry but I will definitely keep nagging my wife to empty it weekly.
