My only problem is i would like to buy a good E-Acoustic for out here in iraq to join my SG i have and switch between the two.

I want a Taylor 214e? i think thats the number its about 800 bucks or so.
Would the guitar be fine in its hardshell case with a humidifier?
It will also be in my room but the temp will vary through out the day here and the max in the summer time will be about 130-140....

Suggestions?!

get an ovation. its mostly composite materials like the back so you dont have to worry about the heat or anything like that warping it as much as u would with an all wood guitar. ovations also sound amazing and have a built in tuner so thats one less thing you need to carry around.
Gear:
Gibson SG w/ Bare Knuckle Aftermaths
Early 90s Fender MIM Telecaster
Squier VM Jaguar
Ibanez RGD7421
Blackstar HT-100
Avatar Vintage w/ 2 Governors and 2 Swamp Thangs
Ibanez EX
Carvin bx500 w/ Peavey 2x10&1x15

i was lookin at ovations and i got a peavy vyper 30 amp i guess i could use with the ovation but i was trying to steer away from the guitars but i mean its mostly to learn on and what not so ill prolly look into one of them for sure. i mean its gonna get roughed up a little bit out here in iraq till i get back home in late septemeber.

Anymore suggestions!?

Personally, I'd steer clear of an expensive guitar in that situation. You could grab yourself a lower end guitar which will play just as well as an expensive one, and you won't be out a ****load of cash should it get busted up or fubar from the heat. Alverez, Yamaha, Epiphone all make nice guitars that can be had on a budget(not saying that you are).

Yeah, that's what I'd recommend too. A cheap guitar is the way to go in such an extreme environment.
