So its starting to get really cold out here in kentucky. My music gear is sitting in my trunk of my car today, and its only about 30 degrees F out side. My Schecter C-1 Hellraiser, and my ISP Decimator, and my 6505+ head are in my trunk. Theyre out there for about 6 or 7 hours. Will the coldness affect the tubes, the amp, the pedal, or the guitar in anyway? [such as messed up tubes or warped neck?]

Yeah, the tuning won't like it!

I ran over two squirrels at once one time. They were chasing after each other in the street, and I swerved to avoid them, but ended up with one under each tire. Still my greatest driving accomplishment to date.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

I would imagine letting the amp warm up to room temperature before powering it up could possibly help the tubes. Glass doesn't like to rapidly change temperature. Thats my $0.02.

The guitar's neck might be affected, as wood doesn't take kindly to cold. It's not advisable therefore to let your guitar get exposed to cold, but a single occasion like this won't do any irreservable damage.

Just sitting in cold isnt going to hurt anything, but constantly going back and forth from cold to heat will eventually take its toll on your guitar. It will still work and be ok, but you'll have to adjust the truss rod at some point. If you can, keep it out of the cold and at room temp.
