Guitar Care Tip: Don't Leave it in the Car!

It's summer, and around here, it's been really hot. It's also a time for playing guitar at outdoor gigs, on the beach, in the park. Well, while you're toting your guitar around, keep this in mind:
Leaving your guitar in the car can cause major damage! As we're sure you're aware, it gets really frickin' hot inside a car on a hot summer day. The drastic changes in temperature really play havoc with the wood. On acoustic guitars, the bridge can pop off, and on both electric and acoustic guitars the neck can warp.
So, even if it's just for an hour or so, PLEASE don't leave your guitar in the car.
Oh, and leaving it in the trunk overnight? Also a baaaad idea.
