I am in Africa til Oct. In the summer, where I am at it will be 115 degrees and humid. Around 140 with heat index during the day. I am in one of the hottest places on the planet, seriously. I will occassionally be playing outside. I am wondering what I can do to prevent damage. Do you think such weather will ruin my guitar? When I am not outside, I am in an air conditioned room with dehumidifier.

thanks,
Brian

That's what I'd do in this case (in time logic matter):

-Give the fretboard a nice care with a good fingerboard oil at home
-New strings!!!!!!! (I don't have to tell you this, right?)
-Check your neck relief
-Acclimate your axe within the open guitar case for a while on realistic stage clima conditions (on stage)
-Check your neck relief
-No direct sunlight if possible, it heats up you guitar and will cause big tuning issues! (experienced once myself with my Suhr guitar, horrible!)
-Tune your guitar, then check your neck relief again short time before the gig. Then tune it again right before you play!

It would be nice to know Johns opinion here... Wink

Never put a guitar in climate you are not comfortable in.
