Just don't leave it alone exposed to direct sun light, specially when you are not playing. It would heat a lot and might damage the wood.

As for playing in the sun, I'd rather play under the shadow of a big nice tree laugh.gif

Your dad is right, the sun makes wood dry and twist so don't leave it outside exposed to weater and wind. The causal playing isn't a problem smile.gif

Maybe your dad said it because he wants 12 days of piece and quiet wink.gif

Well you can play it in the Sun, but who would play a guitar in the heat? Find a nice shade and knock yourself out. Definitely don't leave the guitar stay in the sun or hot areas (like car in the sun) for longer periods. These areas can increase in temperature very fast, in direct sunlight in a car it can get hot like in an oven in 15 mins and less.

Haha, if acoustic guitars couldn't take sunlight while playing, countless concerts would never have happened! smile.gif As others have said, just don't leave it standing out in the sun.
