I don't see why not... The hardware might be a little cold to the touch, but if they are always in that cold environment you don't have to worry about tuning.

It might slightly change the neck, but with an instrument made of mostly wood, that's par for the course in my opinion. I wouldn't worry about it.

Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,

No, it might get lonely.


That's true, and nobody likes being cold and alone.

Poor guitar.

Seriously, though, I can't see it damaging the guitar much, if at all.

Humidity and extreme temperatures can damage equipment. Guitars are pretty precise, so any warping of the wood may cause damage, really. I don't know though. No personal experience with this.

Then just pick a new room. Like you're bathroom. The bathroom is a wonderful place, filled with inspiration.

ya sometimes i play my acoustic when takin a dump and i even made a song about pooping with lyrics and stuff a while back kind of odd but somewhat funny at the time

Not a great idea. Cold air = tighter strings = more pressure on the neck and top. This can lead to warping, cracking, and loss of intonation over time. Better to keep it someplace where the temperature is regulated. Of course, a few nights in the basement won't hurt it, but I wouldn't so it all the time.
Death to Ovation haters!

40-50 degrees ain't bad. Now if your rom as like -20 and when you want to play it you move into a room thats 70 degrees. Then you have a problem.

But guitars are pretty tough, you'll be fine doing a lot of stuff. Extreme tem changes over a very short period of time and extreme humidity and heat can screw it up otherwise it shoudl be alright.

i think if you just leave it in the cold it should be fine but i know that if you have it somewhere really cold and then take it somewhere warm you're supposed to wait a few minutes for it to warm back up because if you play it when its warming back up to room temperature and expanding the tension in the strings will break a big chunk off your guitar...happened to my friend once...i laugh at him forever because of it
