Love your site and I've recommended it to several others.
Here's a tip,
I keep a small notebook in the accessory portion of my guitar's case. I use one of those tiny reproductions of the larger black and white marble colored Composition notebooks. The type of notebook isn't really important, though I prefer the composition type with its sewn-in pages and I don't like the metal loop notepads -- bad news if it somehow gets loose inside your case.
On the inside cover, I've recorded the guitar's vital statistics: Manufacturer, Model, Serial Number, Date Purchased, Seller's info (including phone number). On the pages, I keep track of everything I do to the guitar. What strings I put on it and when and adjustments I've made to the truss rod. This was very handy when I was experimenting with various string brands and gauges and trying to get the action just right. I still find it useful to keep track of string changes. I've done this for each of my three guitars.
