  5. Manufactures guidelines on weather related shipping restrictions. Cold weather delivery. Shipping in the cold will not by itself cause damage to the guitar. Thermal shock will. Do not open the guitar up when it is cold. Damage is likely to occur from thermal shock and from water condensation on the guitars inside and outside surfaces. Allow the box to acclimate to room temperature. This can take up to 24 hours in extreme cold! Typical damage would be cracking of the wood, finish cracking, warping of the wood, protruding fret ends and effects on the playability of the neck. Hot weather delivery. The box must be protected from the sun and from enclosed areas exposed to the sun such as a car. Permanent damage is likely to result from exposure to high temperature such as cracking of the wood, loosening of glue joints and warping and effects on playability.
