I know that acoustic guitars are very humidity-sensitive... So i wanted to know if it would be a good idea to bring my acoustic guitar out on a hot bright sunny day to go play, or if the sun would somehow damage my guitar?

Thanks

i bring mine out all the time.. i'm in florida.. i figure that the plus of having an acoustic is that it's portable.. i'm not worried about it being crapped up tho.. my acoustic is for messing around..

Alright, i'm loving these responses

Sorry if it sounded paranoiac, it's just that my guitar cost me quite a bit, it's a handcrafted yamaha ll500, and i've heard somewhere that high end guitars have to be taken very care of with temperature changes

Well i'm not quite sure what that is haha XD

All I have is this little humidifier i put in between the strings when i place the guitar in it's case.

That's mostly for the cold or extreme heat, like on the equator hot. If you're in Quebec, there's no way it could get hot enough to do more than detune your strings a bit.

So 30 degrees celsius should be fine?

Try not to play in too much direct sunlight. The shade is always better. Too much direct sunlight can heat up your guitar a lot. Especially the bridge area where the wood is dark coloured. So just keep that in mind.
